The quality of Mercy is oft-times strained. Especially when it’s ‘time for war!’
Check out the new teaser for season two of Salem – featuring a not particularly merciful Mercy – after the jump. Salem returns to WGN in April, 2015.
In anticipation of the season two return of its breakout original series “Salem” this April, WGN America has released an all-new promo featuring Mercy (Elise Eberle, “The Astronaut Farmer”) the Reverend Lewis’ increasingly powerful daughter. In the spot, Mercy transforms the symbol of her torment at the hands of the town’s witches into a signal of the Witch War to come.
“Salem,” called “perversely entertaining” by The New York Times, is abold re-imagination of the infamous 17th century witch trials in colonial Massachusetts. The series stars Janet Montgomery as Mary Sibley, Shane West as John Alden, Seth Gabel (“Fringe”) as Cotton Mather, Ashley Madekwe (“Revenge”) as Tituba, Tamzin Merchant (“Jane Eyre”) as Anne Hale, Elise Eberle (“The Astronaut Farmer”) as Mercy Lewis and Iddo Goldberg (“Mob City”) as Isaac Walton. Created and written by Brannon Braga and Adam Simon, “Salem” is executive-produced by Braga, Simon, and Prospect Park’s Jeff Kwatinetz and Josh Barry. Filmed on location in Shreveport, LA, the series is produced by Fox 21.
