American Horror Story: Coven could get its very own companion series at FX.
Co-creator and co-showrunner Ryan Murphy teased that the next season of the hit horror show could possibly get a tie-in series when it debuts later this year. Beyond that, not much else was said at the time.
Although details about the show are few and far between, FX Networks CEO John Landgraf recently said there’s a very strong possibility that the companion series could come together. According to Landgraf, the network would love to put something like that together.
“We’re thinking about it. If we do it I don’t think we’ll necessarily do it the way AMC does, as a linear thing. We might do an online thing. We haven’t made a final decision but I think there’s a decent possibility we’re going to do something like that for ‘Coven,’” he explained to The Hollywood Reporter.
Despite the fact that Landgraf and FX are interested in putting together an American Horror Story companion series, nothing about the project has been confirmed just yet. It’s also unclear just how involved Ryan Murphy would be with in the tie-in.
Some websites believe the companion series could be akin to The Talking Dead, the chat show that often follows The Walking Dead on AMC. If the network decides to move forward with the project, then more info will likely pop up as the Coven premiere date draws near.
The third season of American Horror Story is shaping up quite nicely. Currently counted among the cast are Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Jessica Lange, Emma Roberts, Kathy Bates, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Gabourey Sidibe, Angela Bassett, and Patti Lupone. New episodes will debut this October.
