The teasers for the new season of FX’s “American Horror Story” are getting longer and longer. Following last week’s 20-second spot comes the latest look at “Coven,” a 30-second ad that shows off a decidedly supernatural initiation. Check it out in the player below!

“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. Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe (Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Lange), the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.

The new season is set to premiere on Wednesday, October 9 at 10:00 PM ET/PT. The 13-part miniseries will air Wednesdays at 10:00 PM ET/PT though January of 2014.
