Lucy Lawless and Stuart Townsend will join the Shreveport-shot Salem cast for season two. Both actors will have recurring roles. Lawless will play Countess Marburg and Townsend will play Samuel Wainright. Salem is set in the 17th century during the notorious witch trials where executions were part of the town’s narrative.

Parks And Recreation alum Lawless will switch gears from playing Ron Swanson’s wife to become Countess Marburg, a woman with the long bloodline of German witches. Townsend, who famously took the role of Lestat in Anne Rice’s Queen of the Damned, will play an English aristocrat, Samuel Wainright.

The first season starring Shane West and Janet Montgomery gained a strong following. Salem brings the witch trials to life and doesn’t stop until an execution is made.
