When E! asked McDermott if he thinks Kathy Bates is "perfect" for the upcoming season of "American Horror Story," he said, "She really is. All the witches of Salem…there's plenty of them!"

When a juke box in the rec room played the 1950s classic "I Pull A Spell On You," many audience members believed "American Horror Story" could next tackle the Salem Witch Trials. This isn't the first time that option has been thrown out there: Viewers guessed Salem would be the setting for "American Horror Story" Season 2 after Massachusetts seemed to be a clue in Season 1.

This time around, fans have ever gone so far as to create fake "American Horror Story: Salem" promotional photos and trailers.

Murphy has been tight-lipped about Season 3 specifics, but he did tell Entertainment Weekly in January, "I sorta feel like for the third version I want to do something that’s a little bit more 'evil glamour' ... We're contemplating shooting [Season 3] in a place in the country where true horror has been. We’ve got lots of delicious plans."
