WGN America's upcoming series "Salem" is headed our way, and much sooner than you may think! Along with the release of its official trailer, "Salem" announced its premiere date as it will debut on Sunday, April 20, 2014! After being teased with one promo after another, the official trailer finally reveals a solid look at the show and some of the wicked things it has to offer—kind of like this dude in the picture above wearing the head of a pig—witches be crazy! If that doesn't sell this one then I don't know what else will. Maybe someone covered in blood wearing a wolf head instead? Good because that's in here too!
