About the series
Salem is an original scripted supernatural drama series loosely based on the Salem Witch Trials and tells the story of a powerful witch who initiates hysteria among the puritans with her wicked plans. Created by Brannon Braga and Adam Simon, the show debuted on WGN America on April 20, 2014 and the third season premiered on November 2, 2016. Beetlecod Productions and Fox 21 Television Studios are behind the production.
Set in the small community of Salem, Massachusetts in the 17th century, the show re-tells the story of the Salem Witch Trials from the perspective of the witches. Staring Janet Montgomery as Mary Sibley, and Shane West as Captain John Alden, Salem features their epic romance among the horror, hysteria and despair that has swept the town. Fans continue to tune in to see the unfolding historical drama and follow the beloved central characters. The current season kicked off with the devil brought to Earth by the witches as planned, but from that point on the witches` plan doesn`t quite work out according to their ideas. Will all humanity be destroyed, or is there a chance that the devil`s mother Mary Sibley will be able to beat him?
Reviews and renewal information
Salem has received mixed reviews since its initial debut. Scoring a 54% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a 7.2/10 IMDb score and a just below average rating of 49/100 on Metacritic, the show cultivates a dynamic that keeps the viewers coming back for more. Featuring a more realistic depiction of witches than other popular witch shows in the past, Salem has also demonstrated consistently great writing. The show draws under 0.3 million viewers per episode in the current season, which is a decline from the last season`s numbers, but not a critical one, so the decision on its future is still up in the air. The show has been nominated for a number of awards, but has not managed to win any yet. Salem has not been renewed for season 4, so please stay tuned, and we will keep you informed on its fate.
