by Jordan McGuire on January 29, 2015


The first original scripted series from WGN America will return with its sophomore season on Sunday, April 5. Salem recently added recurring stars Lucy Lawless and Peter Townsend to the cast in Shreveport, Louisiana.

The thirteen-episode second season is described as a “witch war.” Janet Montgomery’s Mary Sibley, the deadliest witch in Salem, vies to take control of the 17th century town in Massachusetts. In this re-imagining of the Salem witch trials, Mary Sibley will face rival witches as they all fight for the proverbial witch throne.

Season one of Salem is available to binge watch on Netflix now. You have plenty of time to catch up with the witchy bedlam, and you can watch the Salem Season 2 trailer here.

The supernatural thriller is written and created by 24’s Brannon Braga and Adam Simon and is produced by Fox 21. The show also stars Shane West, Seth Gabel, Ashley Madekwe, Tamzin Merchant, Elise Eberle and Iddo Goldberg.

As Scene mentioned earlier, Lucy Lawless will play Countess Marburg and Stuart Townsend will play Samuel Wainwright. Marburg is one of the last descendants of a legendary line of German witches and Wainwright is the perplexing doctor exploring Salem for its deepest secrets. Joe Doyle has the role of Baron Sebastian Marburg who is a charming son-of-a-witch(weak pun intended). Mary’s long-lost son is played by Oliver Bell.
