A short featurette that takes viewers "Inside The Coven" to learn the true history of Marie Laveau and how she weaves into the latest chapter of American Horror Story, as played by Angela Bassett.

The real Laveau was a practioner of Voodoo who lived in the 1800s, who was called "the Voodoo queen of New Orleans" - is indeed credited with being a unifying force in helping Voodoo penetrate New Orleans culture.

Here's a breakdown of the season, if you missed it previously:

It's been over 300 years since the Salem witch trials. Those who remain are almost extinct and in danger again. A school has opened in New Orleans to teach protection to the young. The long-absent Supreme arrives to also protect the new students and their secrets. The themes include witches, slavery, witchcraft versus Voodoo, incest, and more. This season will be set in modern day and the 1830s.

An all-new episode of American Horror Story: Coven airs tomorrow, Wednesday, at 10pm only on FX.
