So much of my excitement ends in disappointment, but I truly do feel like WGNA’s “Salem” may deliver something special. Every piece of content released shows something crazy, with not a hesitation in letting blood flow. Behold the full trailer, showing much of said footage, with more about the series plot: it’s a revenge story. And it will bring the beginning of the end…
“Salem” premieres this Sunday, April 20th, 10p/9c on WGN America.
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.
“Salem” stars Janet Montgomery (“Human Target,” “Made in Jersey”) as the ruthless but vulnerable Mary Sibley, Salem’s most powerful enchantress; Shane West (“Nikita,” “ER”) as handsome, hardened war veteran John Alden – and Mary’s onetime love interest; 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; Elise Eberle (“The Astronaut Farmer”) as the mysteriously afflicted Mercy Lewis; and Iddo Goldberg (“Mob City”) as outcast Isaac Walton.
“Salem” explores what really fueled the town’s infamous witch trials and dares to uncover the dark, supernatural truth behind them.
