Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Jessica Lange), the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.

Coven features an extraordinary cast including Oscar®, Emmy® and Golden Globe® award winners Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates; Golden Globe Award winner and Academy Award® nominated Angela Bassett; Emmy Award nominated Sarah Paulson; Golden Globe Award winner and Emmy nominated Frances Conroy; Oscar and Golden Globe award nominated Gabourey Sidibe; Emmy Award nominated Denis O’Hare; Emmy Award nominated Patti LuPone; Evan Peters; Taissa Farmiga; Lily Rabe; and Emma Roberts.

Straight from the star herself, Oscar and Emmy winner Jessica Lange has dropped the news that she’ll be returning to the stage in a new Broadway mounting of Eugene O’Neill’s masterpiece Long Day’s Journey Into Night.

“Yes, absolutely,” responded Lange when asked about a Broadway return in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. “About 12 years ago now, I did a production of what is probably my favorite play ever of all time, Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night, and I am planning on doing that sometime within the next year and a half back on Broadway.”

Lange starred alongside British actor Charles Dance in a West End production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Long Day’s Journey in November 2000. She earned an Olivier Award nomination for her performance as Mary Tyrone, a drug-addled mother struggling with a morphine addiction. She last tread the Broadway boards as Amanda Wingfield in the 2005 revival of Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie, and she made her Broadway debut in 1992 as Blanche DuBois in another Williams classic, A Streetcar Named Desire.

“Blanche DuBois and Mary Tyrone probably are my favorite characters that I ever, ever, ever played,” continued Lange. “It’s wonderful when you are able to create this character and then revisit it years later. So that’s what I’m really looking forward to.”

The actress was nominated for six Academy Awards (winning two for Tootsie and Blue Sky), five Emmys (winning two for Grey Gardens and American Horror Story) and 13 Golden Globes (winning five). She’s currently wowing audiences in Ryan Murphy’s acclaimed FX series American Horror Story, which premieres its third season in October 2013.

Here’s some interesting information about a companion series much like The Walking Dead has that would follow the episode (or be available online) that talks with the cast and crew.

For fans of “American Horror Story,” life just got a little sweeter. Not only is the series returning to FX this October with its third season “Coven,” but it could be getting its own companion series as well. Back in March, co-creator Ryan Murphy expressed interest in streamlining the new series, and now FX Networks CEO John Landgraf informs fans that there’s a strong chance that the new show will see the light of day.

“I’d love to do it,” Landgraf told The Hollywood Reporter. “We’re thinking about it. If we do it I don’t think we’ll necessarily do it the way AMC does, as a linear thing. We might do an online thing. We haven’t made a final decision but I think there’s a decent possibility we’re going to do something like that for ‘Coven.'”
The companion series may still be in consideration, but the network has reportedly done a “fair amount of legwork” to get it off the ground and running. The future looks bright for the potential series, however, there’s still a long way to go.

Murphy originally got the idea for the series after AMC launched “The Talking Dead” as a post-show companion to the hit zombie series, “The Walking Dead.” The format has proven successful, motivating the network to launch a similar companion, “Talking Bad,” to tag on to “Breaking Bad,” which will be coming to an end this year.
