American Horror Story: Coven tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America.
Over 300 years have passed since the turbulent days of the Salem witch trials and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction. Mysterious attacks have been escalating against their kind and young girls are being sent away to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves.
A young girl, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga), is shattered to discover she possesses a strange genetic affliction tracing back to the dark days of Salem.
Zoe is whisked away to Miss Robichaux's Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies, a mysterious school in New Orleans devoted to safeguarding the few remaining descendants who share this unique bloodline.
Alarmed by the recent aggression and harboring a secret agenda, Fiona Goode (Jessica Lange), the most powerful witch of their generation, returns to town hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way, reigniting old rivalries with the Coven's deadly enemies, the Voodoo.
