FX’s Emmy-nominated American Horror Story is one of the scariest and most ambitious series ever to hit the small screen. It also is part of a horror renaissance on television that includes AMC’s The Walking Dead, Fox’s The Following, and Netflix’s Hemlock Grove. On tonight’s season finale of Entertainment Weekly and The Sundance Channel’s behind-the-scene series The Writers’ Room, AHS‘ writer/producers Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Tim Minear join star Lily Rabe to discuss the terrifying series and, in this exclusive clip, why viewers love being scared. Watch below…

The Writers’ Room airs at 10pm on The Sundance Channel. Season three of American Horror Story, this time subtitled Coven, premieres on Oct. 9 at 10pm on FX.

'American Horror Story: Coven' first teaser unveiled -- VIDEO

A creepy rendition of “House of the Rising Sun” and an eerie white room of women facing the walls — this 18-second creep-out can only signal one thing: The first teaser of American Horror Story: Coven has arrived.

The FX miniseries has already taken viewers through a haunted house and an asylum, and the next stop on the horror bus is New Orleans. Zooming in on a major face-off between witches of Salem and voodoo practitioners, the third season will explore both present-day characters of the show and real historical figures of New Orleans back in the 1830s. Kathy Bates has joined the show as historical serial killer Marie Delphine LaLaurie, alongside other new stars, including Emma Roberts, and Gabourey Sidibe.

Although fans are left to wonder about most season 3 secrets, executive producer Tim Minear revealed at the TCAs the social direction taken in the upcoming new season: “I think some of the bigger themes this year is oppression of minorities of all kinds and within that idea, the idea of minority groups going after each other and doing the work for the larger culture. There’s a very strong feminist theme there, there’s also themes of race and themes of oppression and a very strong theme of family, specifically mothers and daughters.”

The third season of the FX horror drama is scheduled to premiere in October. Brave the spooky trailer, titled Detention, below:
