The actor’s other recent TV credits include The Good Wife, Law & Order: SVU and True Blood.

A premiere date for AHS: Coven has not yet been announced, but with FX’s turn at the Television Critics Association summer press tour coming up on Friday, you should expect news soon.

  • This makes me unbelievably happy. Denis O’Hare is one of my favourite actors and I was disappointed they couldn’t fit him in Asylum, so this is FANTASTIC news!

    • I dont know if it was so much they couldnt fit me into Asylum, more that he had a major role over on True Blood.

  • I hope we really get some detailed information on Coven on Friday. They have this stellar cast and Ryan Murphy is frustrating with the secrecy! I also hope the reporters do not go overboard with questions about Cory and keep the focus where it belongs.

  • My absolutely favorite part of season 1. Im so excited that he’ll be back. This completed my wish list of people returning though I’d still be open to a little more Lizzie Brochere

  • This is awesome news…Denis O’Hare is *so* amazing. It’s a travesty that he didn’t get an Emmy for his Russell Edgington on TB.
