Murphy has stated that the opening credits will hold one of the major clues for the season, “You have to watch it 10 times because every frame is a clue for what the season will be,” Murphy stated. He then added, “And every year it has a different tone, look and concept. By the last frame of the main title for Coven, you’ll really have an idea of what the last frame of the Coven season will be.”
