Tonight in Prime Time
‘American Horror Story: Coven’
Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s baroque creep show returns for a new season with a new story line set in New Orleans at a special school for witches. The enchanting brew of actors includes returnees from previous seasons (Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson and Taissa Farmiga) and newcomers Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett. I’m already scared (have you seen those previews?). Season premiere, 10 p.m. Wednesday on FX (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
