Series boss Ryan Murphy announced the casting Friday morning on Twitter.


Breckenridge of course was part of FX’s original Horror Story, playing the younger, um, more libidinal alter ego of Frances Conroy’s housekeeper Moira. She joins a Coven cast that includes fellow Horror Story alumni Jessica Lange, Denis O’Hare, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, Evan Peters and Taissa Farmiga, as well as new blood Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Emma Roberts, Patti LuPone and Gabourey Sidibe.
