For everyone who has seen an episode of WGN’s Salem you know how great the series is. If you haven’t seen it, I should explain that is dark, graphic and one of the best series on TV. The popular series follows a witches’ coven in 17th century Salem. The show explores what really fueled the town’s infamous witch trials. Janet Montgomery plays the role of Mary Sibley, the head witch. Her ex-lover and father of her son, John Alden (Shane West) is set on wiping every one of the witches, but that’s a lot harder than it sounds. Seth Gabel co-stars as the local priest and John’s best friend, Cotton Mathers. Tamzin Merchant, Ashley Madekwe, Elise Eberle, Iddo Goldberg, Xander Berkley, Joe Doyle and Lucy Lawless round out the cast of this fantastic, intense, dark show. Musician/actor Marilyn Manson will be joining the cast for season 3.
The first poster for season 3 has arrived and it’s darker than any poster from previous seasons, setting the tone for an intense season.
Season 3 will premiere later this year, in the mean time here’s a look behind the scenes of season 2.
