Now that “American Horror Story: Coven” went out with a long humming snore, we’ve been looking for something to fill our quota of witchy woman-fueled lunacy. Hopefully WGN’s new series “Salem” will fill that void and more! Check out a new still!
“Salem,” which will premiere on Sunday, April 20, 2014, on WGN America, enters the world of the most notorious witch trials in history, a period steeped in fear, suspicion, and hysteria. On an expansive set in Shreveport, Louisiana, built to reflect 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.
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.
