About Salem

Salem was an American supernatural horror television series that ran from April 20th, 2014 to January 25th, 2017 (having, in all, three seasons). It was created by Adam Simon and Brannon Braga, both of whom served as showrunners. The series starred Janet Montgomery, Shane West, Seth Gabel, Tamzin Merchant, Ashley Madekwe, Elise Eberle, Iddo Goldberg, Oliver Bell, and Joe Doyle. Lucy Lawless and Samuel Roukin also had major recurring roles.

Loosely inspired by the Salem witch trials of the early 1690s, the series follows Mary Sibley, a powerful witch who orchestrates said trials in order to complete the Satanic “Grand Rite”. The return of her former lover John Alden (whom she had thought to be dead) to Salem greatly complicates the execution of the ritual.
