‘American Horror Story: Coven’ May Get Its Own ‘Talking Dead’ Too
Given the success of ‘The Walking Dead‘-centric talk show ‘Talking Dead,’ we’ve seen the same idea applied to ‘Breaking Bad‘ as well, and potentially to FX’s sixth season of ‘Sons of Anarchy,’ but is ‘American Horror Story: Coven‘ next in line for its own post-show analysis? FX CEO John Landgraf thinks it might be, but with one important difference.
The twists and turns of each successive ‘American Horror Story’ season makes it a perfect candidate for its own companion talk show, and FX CEO John Landgraf thinks it might happen this fall. “I’d love to do it,” Landgraf said to The Hollywood Reporter. “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.”
Landgraf did point out that despite the considerable legwork already performed toward the potential series, no hosts have yet been considered, nor is it certain what involvement series creator Ryan Murphy might have with the project. Fellow FX showrunner Kurt Sutter recently expressed his own interest in a ‘Sons of Anarchy’ talkback series, but also pointed out the production would more likely take place online.
Premiering this fall, ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ will welcome newcomers Emma Roberts, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone, Gabourey Sidibe and Kathy Bates, along with returning franchise regulars Jessica Lange, Lily Rabe, Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy, Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson. So far, we know only select details of the FX drama’s third season, including that ‘Coven’ will have a love story similar to the one between Violet (Farmiga) and Tate (Peters) in season 1. The third outing will be set in the modern day across several cities, primarily New Orleans, but will occasionally dip back into the past as the narrative requires.
Well, what say you? Would you want to see a weekly talkback series for upcoming ‘American Horror Story’ seasons?
