Even though there is still over a month to go until “American Horror Story: Coven” first rears its head on FX, we have some more clues now all about trying to make sense of where the best places are to find clues.
Are you going to get the opportunity to see some scoop in the official teasers that FX putting out? Sure, but the biggest hint thematically looks as though it will come during the opening title sequence, which is sadly not going to be available to check out until the season premiere. These introductions are the subject of a new piece in The Hollywood Reporter, and one where Ryan Murphy drops a pretty enormous hint about the season:
“You have to watch it 10 times because every frame is a clue for what the season will be. And ever 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.”
The video below may not necessarily drop many enormous spoilers in regards to the “Coven” season, but it does do a pretty lovely job of explaining some of the finer brushes that went into creating the popular title sequence for last year’s “American Horror Story: Asylum,” from using the same set to planting specific imagery within it in order to draw a very particular response from the audience. Given that this show has multiple Emmy nominations under its belt right now, it is pretty easy to say that many of their techniques were successful.
This upcoming season is set to be haunting, but Sarah Paulson recently teased that there will be some more “fun” to it than in recent seasons. We’re also set to get an epic battle between Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates, and a fantastic setting in New Orleans.
