Just when you thought the show couldn’t get any better…director Ryan Murphy added not one but TWO leading ladies to season three of FX’s American Horror Story.
Murphy tweeted today,

Details on their characters have yet to be revealed, but Murphy did mention that three characters would be playing “real people” in season three.
Bassett and LuPone join fellow newcomers, Kathy Bates and Gabourey Sidibe, as well as returning cast members Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, Sarah Paulson and Taissa Farmiga.
“Coven” is currently filming in New Orleans. The season will premiere in October.
