Hey, I’m not ashamed to say that I can be bought. So it’s a good thing that after watching the season 2 premiere of WGN’s Salem I’m fully on board this weird, strange and grotesque ride. There’s a moment in the S2 premiere that everyone will be talking about but I’m not allowed to say anything until it airs. Boo!
If you read and watch the interviews from my recent visit next weekend, oh they be chock full of spoilers. So if Brannon Braga, Shane West or Lucy Lawless drop spoilers who am I to to deny you? Hey, I told WGN I don’t edit, we go raw on this site 🙂 One of the really cool things about this show – I didn’t see any green screens, it looked like most of the sets are real. Anyhoo, check out this creepy trailer for WGN’s Salem Season 2 – Witch War!
In preparation for a possible upcoming set visit I went to the trusty iTunes and purchased WGN America’s latest scripted series Manhattan. Hey, contrary to popular belief I will occasionally do my homework! I’m blown away by how much I’m digging it. Season two was recently announced and going into production next month. The buzz is starting in a big way as Manhattan just won the 2015 SXSW Jury Award for Excellence in Title Design. I highly recommend picking this show up on your digital service of choice. Check out the sequence below.
Season Two of WGN America’s supernatural hit, Salem, launches in April. In the meantime, the network has released four very cool, very disturbing pieces of key art to tantalize fans. The posters feature Mary Sibley (above), Tituba, Anne Hale and Mercy Lewis (after the jump).
Lucy Lawless, Stuart Townsend, Joe Doyle and Oliver Bell have joined the cast of WGN America’s Salem – Doyle and Bell as regulars.
