‘Salem’ Behind the Scenes Look Previews Love, Magic and Witch Hunts

So the witches appear to be the bad guys in WGN America’s Salem. That is a twist.

In a new behind the scenes look, the cast and crew discuss the sexy new horror series and preview that the witches are actually running the trials. Despite this, the goal is to get viewers to invest in the characters, so a love story between war hero John and the powerful Mary will give the series a touch of romance to go along with its witches in chains, deviant preacher (played by sci-fi favorite Seth Gabel who calls Cotton Mather “the coolest character” he has ever played) and creepy spells. Watch the trailer below. Are you up for more witches so soon after American Horror Story: Coven? Sound off below.

Salem premieres Sunday, April 20th at 10/9c on WGN America.
