Following a strong launch, WGN America‘s “Salem,”, their first original scripted drama, has been picked up for a second season only three episodes into its freshman run, Deadline reports.
The 13-episode second season of “Salem,” from creators Brannon Braga and Adam Simon and Fox 21, will begin production later this year for a 2015 debut.
Starring Janet Montgomery, Shane West, Seth Gabel, Xander Berkeley, Ashley Madekwe, Tamzin Merchant, Elise Eberle and Iddo Goldberg, “Salem” re-imagines the infamous 17th century witch trials in the Massachusetts town.
“At WGN America, we are committed to delivering compelling, brand-defining programming rich with fascinating characters, and ‘Salem’ has done just that,” said WGN America President Matt Cherniss.
