"[Coven] is my favorite season that we've done so far," Murphy told us, "Every season, I get very sad when I say goodbye to and we tear down those sets. But John Landgraf, to be quite clear, and I have always spoke about that this is a show that's sort of right to spin things off. To do something different. So we are talking about it. Because I mean, I love it. I love this season, I love the cast, and I love what it's about. I love that set more than life itself... I mean, I already know what next season is and it's not witches but maybe something will happen. We're talking. It has to get on the air first, I think."
The rivalries are fierce, and the plot twists will make you cry out for your mama, but it's the humor that sets Coven apart from AHS' prior seasons. "Last year was so dark and grim and hard," Murphy admits. "And I loved it. But this year was designed to be scary but more, I think, fun. I heard a lot last year, ‘I love it but it's hard to sit through.' So I wanted this year to be easier to sit through. A little more light."
