The only thing better than having Jessica Lange and Patti Lupone as part of the American Horror Story: Coven cast is getting to watch these two greats face-off against each other, and according to TV Guide, that’s exactly what’s slated to happen this season.
Get ready to pick a side, people!
We already know that Jessica will be playing a supreme witch named Fiona, but according to executive producer Tim Minear, Patti’s character Joan Ramsey will not have a broom stick and pointy black hat to call her own. “Patti will be playing someone who will go up against Fiona and her daughter Cordelia,” Tim dished.
Fiona and Joan will be pitted against each other when Joan and her son move next door to Fiona and Cordelia’s school for young witches, and it sounds like Joan isn’t fond of the supernatural beings.
Tim explains, “Patti's character is a bit of a holy roller who has recently lost her husband under suspicious circumstances.”
If we had to guess, we’d say that Joan blames her husband’s death on witches and then sets out on a vendetta against them. But even though she isn’t a witch, here’s hoping Joan has some magical powers of her own!
