Fans who enjoy the creepy elements brought to the table by Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett in “American Horror Story: Coven” are in for some good news. Both actresses have been approached to return to season four of the show.

Entertainment Weekly writes that the actresses, who play immortal archenemies Madame LaLaurie and Marie Laveaux in the latest season of the FX show, are coveted by series co-creator Ryan Murphy for future seasons of the show.

“I have approached them and they wanna do it,” Murphy told the magazine, adding “That’s very exciting when you can work with A.) actresses you’ve always idolized and B.) those two are loving this season. They love what they get to do. Kathy Bates sent the writers a basket of plush toys all in the shapes of disemboweled organs. It doesn’t get better than when an Oscar winner sends you a grab bag of stuffed pancreas to say ‘Thank you and job well done.’”
