The third season of American Horror Story will be subtitled Coven and add actress Kathy Bates to the ensemble, according to co-creator, Ryan Murphy.

"We're far enough along in the writing that I can tell you what it's about", Ryan announced to more than 1,000 of the show's fans who attended the PaleyFest panel at the Saban Theatre in Los Angeles.

Ryan, who created Nip/Tuck, Glee and The New Normal confirmed there would be witches in the new season, but failed to reveal any more plot specifics.

"It's a really cool story that we've been talking about for a couple of years, actually, and this seemed the year to do it," he continued, dropping one more tidbit that parts of the third season will be shot in New Orleans.

"The fun thing about doing the show is researching what are the really haunted places in America, because every year the institution is one of the lead characters," Ryan explained. "The first year was Murder House, and this year was Asylum. We have another couple doozy locales."

Ryan also said he was considering a vampire-themed Horror Story, and that "I have been talking to John (FX network president and general manager John Landgraf) about doing a companion piece to American Horror Story, so I think it would be really cool to do a couple different incarnations of the idea. So, we've been talking about that, but I can't talk about it."
