The newest addition to horror television is Wgn America’s Salem. Set during the witch trials of the 1600s, Salem premiered a long-form trailer at the Television Critics Association conference. After watching the footage, I am all-in. This is not going to be a mushy modern-day witch show with ties to the Salem Witch Trials; this is not a romance that is aided by a little nose-wiggle and a sprinkle of fairy dust.
