Gabourey Sidibe has expressed excitement about joining the cast of American Horror Story.
Creator Ryan Murphy’s third American Horror Story season will be subtitled Coven and is to explore supernatural forces and witchcraft.

“I’m so excited and I could not wait to tell the world because it’s one of my favorite shows,” she beamed.
The Academy Award nominee was also quizzed on details about the upcoming season.
“I know nothing,” she insisted. “The news just sort of came in two weeks ago… I have not seen a script at all. I know it shoots in New Orleans.”
Sidibe then joked: “I hope I don’t die!”
The third season of American Horror Story will also feature Jessica Lange, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga and Kathy Bates in the cast.
