First Official Trailer for WGN America’s Witch Series “Salem”

“One, two, three and four. The devil’s here, no sleep no more.”

There seems to be no shortage of witchery in pop culture these days (see: American Horror Story: Coven, Witches of East End, Sleepy Hollow, etc).

The awesome trend continues in WGN America’s first ever scripted series, titled Salem – and these witches ain’t nuthing ta fuck wit. Starring Janet Montgomery, Shane West, Seth Gabel, and Ashley Madekwe, the series will re-imagine the 1692 Salem witch trials as though the witches were real, and perhaps manipulating events to their benefit. “There is something worse than a witch hunt,” says Mary Sibley (Montgomery), the most powerful and dangerous witch in Salem, “A witch.”

Check out this previously released (and somehow infinitely more horrifying) teaser trailer for more Salem goodies:

Salem premieres April 20, 2014 on WGN America.
