WATCH: ‘Salem’s Full Trailer Showcases Witches, Blood and Darkness
Heathens, witches, and Puritans! Oh my!
WGN America’s first original scripted series based on the 17th century witch trials is almost here, but before we watch the episode in its entirety the network's released a full trailer for ‘Salem,’ starring Shane West as hero John Alden, and Janet Montgomery as witch Mary Sibley.
As you can see from the video below, the dark and twisted drama isn’t holding back on the creepiness. From ugly hags to a girl biting off her fingertip to people sporting animal flesh masks, ‘Salem’ is sure to keep us up at night.
The series tells the story of Salem, Mass. and the infamous witch trials and witch hunt, during one of the most talked about periods of time.
Recently, TVRage.com visited ‘Salem’s set in Shreveport, La., where we chatted with co-creator Brannon Braga, other members of the creative team and the entire cast. Personally, I’ve also watched the premiere (twice), titled “The Vow,” and let’s just say I’m glad I screened it during the day. This is one show not to be missed.
‘Salem’ also stars Seth Gabel as Cotton Mather, Ashley Madekwe as Tituba, Xander Berkeley as Magistrate Hale, Tamzin Merchant as Anne Hale, Iddo Goldberg as “Isaac the Fornicator” and Elise Eberle as Mercy Lewis.
‘Salem’ debuts Sunday, April 20 (aka a great way to celebrate Easter) on WGN America at 10/9c.
Looks good. I wish witches were real. Imagine ridding a broomstick to work. All the greenfolk would be so envious. No pollution. As long as people credit an invisible man in the sky for things, we will always have evil.

It looks as if it holds true to History and uses the stocks for the rape punishment. ( Who actually caught that guy greasing the flagpole? Was it a public flogging, or someone peeping in the window?) But I see nothing regarding the cigarettes?
