Series co-creator Ryan Murphy announced at the recent Paley Fest that Season 3 of “American Horror Story” will be subtitled “Coven.” “It’s a really cool story that we’ve been talking for a couple years, and this seemed to be the year to do it,” he said, noting the series will shoot in multiple locations, one of which is New Orleans — the first time the series has exited its soundstage filming location.
