SHREVEPORT, LA, (April 5, 2016) – WGN America announced today that the much-anticipated third season of the supernatural thriller “Salem” will premiere this fall during Halloween week.   The network also released an intense new teaser trailer for the upcoming season currently in production in Shreveport, LA.  “Salem” continues its bloody, sexy and fantastical reimagining of Colonial America, with renowned recording artist Marilyn Mason, who guest stars in the upcoming season as the bloody barber surgeon Thomas Dinley. 

The third season of “Salem” dawns with the triumph of the witches' plan to remake the New World by bringing the devil to earth and making Salem his capital.  But the devil is a liar, and instead of a New World free from murderous Puritan hypocrisy, his own plan will bring nothing but death and slavery with the ultimate aim of leading humanity to destroy itself.  And there's only one person on earth who can beat the devil -- the very witch that birthed him, his mother, Mary Sibley.  The only problem is—she's dead.  Or is she?

“Salem” stars Janet Montgomery ("Human Target," "Made in Jersey") as Mary Sibley, Shane West ("Nikita," "ER") as Captain John Alden, Seth Gabel ("Arrow," "Fringe") as Cotton Mather, Ashley Madekwe ("Revenge") as Tituba, Tamzin Merchant ("Jane Eyre") as Anne Hale, Elise Eberle ("The Astronaut Farmer") as Mercy Lewis, Iddo Goldberg ("Mob City") as Isaac Walton, Joe Doyle ("Raw") as Baron Sebastian Marburg, Oliver Bell ("The Saint") as Mary’s son and Marilyn Manson guest stars as Thomas Dinley. 

Created and written by Brannon Braga and Adam Simon, “Salem" is executive produced by Braga, Simon, Kelly Souders, Brian Peterson and Prospect Park’s Jeff Kwatinetz and Josh Barry.  The series is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios.
