[TV] New “Salem” Teaser Has Some Wicked Witches!!

Salem

Are you guilty or not?

The latest promo for WGN America “Salem” wants to know.

Check out this wicked new promo from the most notorious witch trials that has some serious OMFG imagery. Now that “Coven” is over, I’m seriously looking forward to “Salem’s” April 20 premiere!

On an expansive set reflecting volatile 17th century Massachusetts, “Salem” explores what really fueled the town’s infamous witch trials and dares to uncover the dark, supernatural truth behind them.

“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.

In “Salem,” witches are real, but they are not who or what they seem. The show, which centers on an epic romance wrapped around this explosive revelation, delivers a bold new vision of Salem – and an even bolder new vision of witches.

    I really hope that they have ladies for the casting of Sarah Goode, Dorothy (Dorcas) Goode and Bridget Bishop. They should definitely follow the Salem Witch Trials. Otherwise, I like the casting so far though.

      yeah, me too. It reminds me of The Crucible, I just hope that they pull it off.

    Looks cool. I like how there’s actual evil looking witches. I don’t recall seeing any of that in AHS: Coven.
