After the weekly instalments of sheer, twisted terror that were American Horror Story: Asylum, we think we’re finally ready for the series’ third season, AHS: Coven. While we have limited knowledge of the upcoming season — which will premiere sometime in October — creator Ryan Murphy recently revealed that viewers can look to the opening credits for clues as to what the new year will bring.
Using the opening credits of Asylum as an example, Ryan explains to The Hollywood Reporter, “I've always been obsessed with main titles, I really feel like it's an art form. It tells you what the viewing experience ahead is going to be.”
As THR points out, the opening sequence of Asylum did feature people stuck in a “bathtub of horror,” which corresponded to the disgusting milk baths Lana (Sarah Paulson) was forced to endure later on in the season.
So what can viewers expect from Coven’s yet-to-be-released opening credits?
“Every year it has a different tone, look and concept. By the last frame of the main title for Coven, you'll really have an idea of what the last frame of the Coven season will be,” Ryan continues.
While the standard AHS typography will remain in the title sequence, title designer Kyle Cooper explains that for Season 3, “we’re trying to make something completely different.”
Coven stars Kathy Bates as Madame LaLAurie, a Louisiana-born socialite and serial killer, and Jessica Lange as a witch named Fiona. This season, Sarah Paulson will play her daughter. Angela Bassett and Patti Lupone are also part of the Coven cast.Source: The Hollywood Reporter
