American Horror Story: Coven premieres FABULOUS teaser trailer

I was already getting super stoked about "American Horror Story: Coven," and then they went and released a teaser trailer that is the height of fabulousness.

Seriously, watch it now and tell me you don't want to watch this freakin' show:

This season, "American Horror Story" follows Zoe (Taissa Farmiga) as she attends a school for witches in New Orleans. But, if "American Horror Story: Coven" is anything like the first two seasons of the show, it will be about way more than a simple little coven of fabulous witches.

I never finished the first season of "American Horror Story," mainly because of a hiccup with FX during its run (it is on my Netflix Instant Queue!), but I devoured "American Horror Story: Asylum" last year because, thankfully, each season is a completely standalone story. If you're at all interested in "Coven," don't be afraid to watch it because you think you'll be lost because you missed the first two seasons of the show. Oh, you'll probably be lost, because "American Horror Story" likes to be twisted in more ways than one. It will likely make its way through dozens of apparently disparate plot points before arriving at the beautifully baffling conclusion.

"American Horror Story" is a total adventure. Its biggest weakness is that it probably tries to stuff too much into the show (last season included Nazis, aliens, evil experiments, mental patients, a woman who thought she was Anne Frank, a serial killer and more), but that also means that you have an hour of TV each week that is guaranteed not to be boring. Creepy, weird, disturbing, confusing and strange, yes, but never boring.

Besides, the cast of "American Horror Story" only continues to get more fantastic. In addition to great returning actors playing new characters, including Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga and Sarah Paulson, this season of the show will also include the fabulousness of Gabourey Sidibe, Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett, among others. Oh, and of course, there is the great and fabulous Jessica Lange, who was the true star of both previous seasons of the show and, I'm sure, will continue to delight audiences as the Supreme witch Fiona this season.

Friends, this season is going to be epic.

"American Horror Story" premieres Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 10 p.m. on FX.
