Have you been watching American Horror Story: Coven? It’s been pretty crazy so far. And by “pretty crazy” I mean “OMG I’M OBSESSED WITH IT.” I loved the previous two seasons, but I think this one is my favorite by far. If you’re obsessed with it too, you’re probably interested to see how the cast gets along behind the scenes. Since they star on such a twisted show (part of which is based on a true story), are they able to have fun when the cameras aren’t rolling? The answer, based on the photos they’ve shared on social media, is a definite yes.
If you watch this show mostly through the spaces between your fingers, you might need a pleasant reminder that this is all just make believe, and it’s being make-believed into glorious existence by some fun-loving, adorable people. So before you watch tonight’s new episode (10 PM ET on FX, set an alarm) check out these cute behind-the-scenes photos the show’s cast and creator, Ryan Murphy, were kind enough to share, and remember that they’re just a bunch of friendly people playing pretend. There are even a few throwbacks tossed in, just in case you’re catching up on past seasons.

Sarah Paulson is particularly adorable, and makes frequent appearances on Lily’s Instagram.
Here they are again being goofy, in video form.
Emma Roberts captioned this “My favorite girl.” Madison and Queenie getting along? What is this?!
Hanging by the pool with Zachary Quinto. Sister Mary Eunice and Dr. Thredson, together again.
Speaking of Dr. Thredson, did you know he plays the banjo?
Angela Bassett shared this photo on Twitter. I can’t handle the amount of fabulous contained in this image.
Just a smiling couple starring on a bloody horror show together. The usual.
Sarah shared this pic of her and Lizzie Brochere on Twitter last year. Look how cute they are in their asylum threads.
Another throwback to Asylum. Sister Mary Eunice doesn’t seem so menacing like this.
