Meet the witches.

After a series of abstract teasers was trickled out over the last few weeks to build up atmosphere, "American Horror Story: Coven" has finally released an all-too-brief look at some of its actual cast members -- like Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Taissa Farmiga, all returning actors from past seasons of the FX horror anthology series. But it's the heads of the coven, looming large in a New Orleans mansion, who get the most dramatic reveal -- newcomers Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates, and the divine Jessica Lange, for whom the series has been a terrific platform. The season starts on October 9, 2013.
