This past week has given us our most tantalizing reveals of ‘American Horror Story: Coven‘ yet, sneaking out new teasers, details, and even a premiere date of the Ryan Murphy horror drama’s third cycle, but the witchy new spoilers have yet to cease! Comedian Leslie Jordan is the latest to join ‘American Horror Story’ season 3 in a mysterious new role, but who will the comic actor portray?

Surprise! According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jordan’s role will be kept under wraps for the time being, even as the major ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ castings have at least been partially uncovered on our way to the October 9 premiere. Jordan himself announced the casting over Facebook, saying “BIG NEWS: On September 5, 2013 in New Orleans I join the storied cast of AMERICAN HORROR STORY. I have always loved Mr. Murphy’s work and am so honored.”

As revealed by FX yesterday, ‘American Horror Story: Coven”s battle between witches and voodoo will unfold as such:

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 (Taissa Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Jessica 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.

Elsewhere, we know that the third season will divide between both present and 1830s New Orleans to tell its terrifying tale. ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ will also welcome newcomers Christine Ebersole, Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone and Gabourey Sidibe, along with returning franchise regulars Jessica Lange, Denis O’Hare, Alexandra Breckinridge, Lily Rabe, Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.
