*FX is promoting the October 9 premiere of its Angela Bassett-enhanced “American Horror Story: Coven” in dribs and drabs.
The latest trailer, released today, features the Oscar-nominated actress in character as voodoo priestess Marie Laveau, as well as fellow new cast member Gabourey Sidibe.
Until now, “Coven’s” cryptic teasers haven’t revealed much about the plot. In this new 30-second clip, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga) is shipped off to a school for witches, where headmaster Fiona (Jessica Lange) warns her that she has only one thing to fear: Fiona herself.
Sidibe appears to be another student in the witch school. Fiona says to them during an apparent field trip, “When witches don’t fight, we burn.”
There are also flashes of new cast member Kathy Bates as real life serial killer Madame LaLaurie, and Bassett’s Laveau – hair in long, thick twists – ending the promo with a devilish laugh.
Watch the new teaser below.
“American Horror Story: Coven” premieres Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 10/9c on FX.
