Just yesterday (in an article for Bloodline) I was lamenting that all of these good shows seem to be piling up and I’m running out of time to watch them. There’s just so much good TV out there that it’s an embarrassment of riches. My newest case in point is this Salem Season 2 trailer, a clip that gives us a much better look at what’s to come from the show than either the atmospheric teaser or recent trailer was able to provide. Lots of blood, witches and general creepiness ensue. And I haven’t even see the first season yet.
Check out the extended Salem Season 2 trailer below. The show also stars Janet Montgomery and Shane West (along with guest stars Lucy Lawless and Stuart Townsend) and will return to WGN on Sunday, April 5th at 10 p.m. ET.
Here’s the official synopsis for Salem Season 2:
From creators, writers and executive producers Brannon Braga (“Cosmos,” “24) and Adam Simon (“The Haunting in Connecticut), SALEM season two opens at the dawn of the Witch War set into motion at the end of season one, when Mary Sibley completed the Grand Rite, a deadly supernatural ceremony that unleashed a devastating plague on the citizens of Salem. As the war-torn village lies in peril, the fates of Captain John Alden (Shane West, “Nikita, “ER”), Cotton Mather (Seth Gabel, “Arrow,” “Fringe”), Tituba (Ashley Madekwe, “Revenge”), Anne Hale (Tamzin Merchant, “Jane Eyre”), Mercy Lewis (Elise Eberle, “The Astronaut Farmer”) and Isaac Walton (Iddo Goldberg, “Mob City”) hang in the balance.
Also new to this season are Stuart Townsend (“Betrayal,” “The League of Extraordinary Gentleman”) as Samuel Wainwright, a mysterious doctor looking to uncover the secrets of Salem as he keeps a few of his own; Joe Doyle (“Raw”) as Baron Sebastian Marburg, the charming and cultured son of the Countess; and Oliver Bell (“The Saint”) as Mary’s long-lost son, who was revealed in the season one finale to have been secretly kept alive all along by her coven.
