We're really looking forward to checking out WGN America's upcoming witch-themed series "Salem" and I've got my fingers crossed that it lives up to the expectations that have been built up following all of the images and earlier promos that we've seen for it so far. It certainly looks like it could deliver some genuinely creepy thrills and this latest promo that we have for ya this morning gives us even more to look forward to.
"Salem" is headed for a April 20 premiere as it explores what really fueled the town's infamous witch trials and dares to uncover the dark, supernatural truth behind them.
"Salem" is set in the volatile world of 17th century Massachusetts and explores what really fueled the town's infamous witch trials. The series will look to uncover the dark, supernatural truth hiding behind the veil of this infamous period in American history.
“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.
Look for "Salem" to cast a spell over viewers on April 20 on WGN America.
