‘Salem’ Season 3 Trailer: Promise of More Death, Destruction

Exclusive: Here's the first full-length Season 3 trailer for the WGN America drama, which returns the week of Halloween.



WGN America

After a long hiatus, WGN America’s witchcraft drama “Salem” returns for Season 3 this fall — and Comic-Con fans this week will get a first taste at the show’s latest creepy twists and turns.

“Salem” (which returns during the week of Halloween) ended its second season in June 2015 with the devil’s arrival in the New World – 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,” the network teases. Now, it’s up to presumed dead witch Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery) to save the world.
