The third season primarily follows the antics and events of a coven of Salem descendants who reside within a boarding school, Miss Robichaux’s Academy, centered in New Orleans, Louisiana. The academy is run by Headmistress Cordelia Foxx, who has always lived in the shadow of her mother, Fiona Goode. Fiona is the Coven’s “Supreme”, a witch born every generation who embodies countless gifts and magical abilities, namely, the Seven Wonders of Witchcraft; the Supreme is the head of the Coven. Danger lurks inside the academy’s past due to the mysterious butler Spalding and his relationship with Fiona. The entire coven is assessed and evaluated by the Council of Witchcraft, which includes Fiona’s old rival and Cordelia’s mother figure, Myrtle Snow.

Now I liked the first season of the show which was “Murder House” as it was just a whole lot of strange but kind of depressing when it all came down to it. I think so far that I enjoyed the second go round of “Asylum” a little more based on the diverse characters that it brought to light. It also had some sad moments but I felt the storyline a little bit stronger than the first had. The idea of a Coven of Witches might be interesting, but lets see if that flies considering we find the fans all enamored with vampires and zombies nowadays. Will you be watching the show?
