‘Salem’ (WGN America) Trailer: What if the Witches Were Real?

What is the only thing worse than a witch hunt? A witch, it turns out.

WGN America’s trailer for their first original scripted series, Salem, mixes fact with a whole lot of fiction, but there is something eerily satisfying about the horror story taking shape in the scenes we see. If Salem had held true witches, then they surely would have wreaked vengeance on those who tried to persecute them. Like American Horror Story: Coven, Salem is filmed in Louisiana, and the area gives the series a uniquely gothic vibe. Check out the trailer below. Are you up for another TV horror tale?

The series stars Janet Montgomery (Human Target), Shane West (Nikita), Seth Gabel (Fringe), Ashley Madekwe (Revenge), Xander Berkeley (Nikita), Tamzin Merchant (Jane Eyre) and Elise Eberle (The Astronaut Farmer).

Salem premieres Sunday, April 20th on WGN America.
