We’re almost there, folks, with just a little over a week to go before the premiere of WGN’s upcoming new series “Salem”. On tap today is an all new clip that asks: Who torments poor Mercy Lewis? The mystery will be revealed when “Salem” debuts Sunday, April 20th at 10/9c on WGN America. And with a new clip comes the synopsis of the show’s very first episode ‘The Vow’ which goes like this:
John Alden (West) returns from war to discover that the woman he left behind is now married to another man and that his hometown of Salem, Mass., is in the midst of a witch panic in the premiere of this supernatural drama.
“Salem” stars Janet Montgomery as the ruthless but vulnerable Mary Sibley, Salem’s most powerful enchantress – and Alden’s onetime love interest; Shane West as handsome, hardened war veteran John Alden; Seth Gabel as local aristocrat Cotton Mather who fans the flames of Salem’s witch hunt; Ashley Madekwe as Mary’s mysterious, carnal accomplice; Xander Berkeley as chief politician Magistrate Hale; Tamzin Merchant as the forthright Anne Hale, an artist with a perilous attraction to Alden; and Elise Eberle as the mysteriously afflicted Mercy Lewis.
