Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, "Heroes") appeared in the first two seasons of "American Horror Story" and was one of the highlights of Season 2, subtitled "Asylum." This led fans to wonder if he would return to the show in Season 3, subtitled "Coven."
In the latest "Ask Ausiello" column at TVLine, Michael Ausiello reports the following bit of information from the man himself:
"Question: Will Zachary Quinto turn up in American Horror Story: Coven? -Shein
Ausiello: 'No plans so far, but we'll see how that goes as the season unfolds,' says the AHS vet, who is currently starring on Broadway in The Glass Menagerie. 'I'm always open to it. I've been so grateful for the opportunity to work with all those people, so if I can do it again I would love to.'"

Here is the official synopsis for "American Horror Story: Coven."
American Horror Story: Coven tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America. Over 300 years have passed since the turbulent days of the Salem witch trials and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction. Mysterious attacks have been escalating against their kind and young girls are being sent away to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves. Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Jessica Lange), the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.
