Salem Conjures a Second Season



Since last year’s Salem did such a bang-up job at spooking Space viewers, we’re pleased to announce that the witchcraft thriller will be given a 13-episode second season beginning April 5 at 10e 7p.

As previously reported by PR Newswire, according WGN America’s press release, “season two opens at the dawn of the witch war set into motion at the end of season one, with its catalyst and Salem’s deadliest witch, Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery) at the center of the mayhem as she faces off against new and old adversaries vying for her throne. In the wake of the destruction caused by the Grand Rite, completed by Mary and inadvertently triggered by Isaac Walton (Iddo Goldberg) in the season one finale, the fates of Captain John Alden (Shane West), Cotton Mather (Seth Gabel), Tituba (Ashley Madekwe), Anne Hale (Tamzin Merchant), Mercy Lewis (Elise Eberle) and Isaac hang in the balance.”

Newcomers on board for the show’s sophomore season include Xena: Warrior Princess herself, Lucy Lawless, and Stuart Townsend as English doctor Samuel Wainwright.

More dandy news: If you haven’t seen Salem, boy, are you in luck, because the entire first season is available to stream on CraveTV, just in time for the big night on April 5.
