This past Sunday saw the debut of WGN America's witch-themed series "Salem" and word is that it was a strong premiere that set up what could be a very exciting (and scary) season of quality television. Unfortunately I haven't gotten around to checking it out yet but will try to rectify that before this upcoming Sunday's second episode titled 'The Stone Child'.
Below you'll find a handful of images and a clip from the next episode of "Salem", which will air on WGN America this Sunday, April 27 at 10:00 p.m. ET / 9:00 p.m. CT.
"Salem" ep. 1x02 'The Stone Child'
“With witch fears rising, Alden seeks the truth of what’s really going on in Salem while Cotton continues to wrestle with his guilt and Mary looks to execute a plan. The witches get closer to finding out who interrupted the ceremony, but Mary continues to find her emotions for Alden affecting her focus. A clue in the woods leads Cotton and Isaac to find more evidence that the witches may indeed be real.“
“Salem” stars Janet Montgomery (“Human Target,” “Made in Jersey”) as the ruthless but vulnerable Mary Sibley, Salem’s most powerful enchantress – and Alden’s onetime love interest; Shane West (“Nikita,” “ER”) as handsome, hardened war veteran John Alden; Seth Gabel (“Fringe”) as local aristocrat Cotton Mather who fans the flames of Salem’s witch hunt; Ashley Madekwe (“Revenge”) as Mary’s mysterious, carnal accomplice; Xander Berkeley (“Nikita,” “The Mentalist”) as chief politician Magistrate Hale; Tamzin Merchant (“Jane Eyre”) as the forthright Anne Hale, an artist with a perilous attraction to Alden; and Elise Eberle (“The Astronaut Farmer”) as the mysteriously afflicted Mercy Lewis.
