See the slithery, creepy new poster for American Horror Story: Coven

The coven has assembled, and they brought a friend.

The latest promo for the third season of FX's acclaimed horror series American Horror Story is this creepy, yet somehow tempting, poster, featuring a slithering companion:

Coven will be set both in the 1830s and the present day, and offer up a secret history of American witchcraft. More than three centuries after the Salem witch trials, the remaining American witches are threatened by new attacks that could mean the end of their kind. To combat the threat, young witches are sent to a new school in New Orleans to learn to defend themselves, and the Supreme witch Fiona (Jessica Lange) returns to help protect the coven from extinction.

In additon to Lange, Coven will feature returning American Horror Story cast members Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, Alexandra Breckenridge, Denis O'Hare and Jamie Brewer, along with new stars Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone, Emma Roberts and Gabourey Sidibe. 

Coven premieres Oct. 9 on FX. Are you ready for another season of scares?
