Wait, what? No, what? I love WGN’s Salem. I love the cast and producers. Normally I’m not a fan of witchcraft, but the way it’s handled on Salem is some of the best I’ve ever seen. It’s one of those shows that really sucked me in last season, however it’s one of those shows you really have to be in the mood for and I was waiting to carve out some time to give it a proper binge. I’m shocked that the series is actually ending tonight. Where was I when the news that Season 3 would be its last? I’m happy and hopeful that everyone involved will be able to give the show a proper ending. Tune in tonight, Wednesday, January 25th at 9pm. One guarantee is people will die in really gruesome ways!
The thing I hate most about Junkets are the embargoes. Damn the embargoes. I have so much I want to say about S2 of WGN’s Outsiders, but I have to wait until December. The cast will have a big panel at NYCC, October 9th and everyone will be able to talk about S2, but me? I have to wait. Gah. I’m pretty sure they will show the 20 minute preview reel that we saw at the junket a few months ago. Fans will be in for some surprises. Season 2 promises to be full on cray with a little Misery thrown in Mr. Man. S2 will hit the network January 24th, 2017.
It’s season 2, and things are heating up in the witch wars at “Salem“. As the body count continues to rise, the number of people (or witches) to trust, plummets. Critical decisions must be made, personal battles must be overcome, and the fate of John Alden’s (Shane West) and Mary Sibley’s (Janet Montgomery) son will be decided as Countess Marburg (Lucy Lawless) ensues in trying to bring Mary down and secure her place of power in Salem. Co-creators Adam Simon and Brannon Braga talk with reporters about season 2 of Salem.
In “Salem“, the battle between Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery) and Countess Marburg (Lucy Lawless) continues to heighten as Mary embraces her role as a mother. In the same token, John Alden (Shane West) is met with surprise as he reunites with Mary and realizes he has a son–with Mary. Jealousy and betrayal continue to rear its ugly head in the city of Salem. Janet Montgomery took time to talk with reporters about season 2 of “Salem”.
“Salem” is just weeks away from the season finale. As season 2 premiered April 5, we watched as the witch wars continue to heighten. Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery) meets her match as a new witch, Countess Marburg (Lucy Lawless) threatens those around her, including her long lost son John (Oliver Bell) while John Alden (Shane West) returns to Salem and learns he had a son with Mary. Cotton Mather (Seth Gabel) and Anne Hale (Tazmin Merchant) forge a new romance. Tituba (Asheley Madekwe) betrays Mary. Shane West took time to talk with reporters about season 2 of Salem.
I was on the Set of WGN’s Salem last week and had the chance to speak with Producer/Creator Brannon Braga. After our brief chat about Salem, I had to tell him that Star Trek: Voyager was my favorite Star Trek crew and how disappointed I was that there was never a Voyager movie. He agreed with me, then I told him I read the Voyager books and was upset that they killed Janeway – my favorite Captain! His response – “Ignore the books!” Granted the Voyager books probably are official cannon, but hey, we can always hope that there will be a Voyager movie with Janeway at the helm. Check out Salem Season 2 when it premieres on WGN April 5!
Unlike its first scripted series, Salem, WGN’s new original series, Manhattan, is named not after its setting, but for its subject – The Manhattan Project, which was name of the top secret work on developing the atomic bomb. The series, which stars The Big C’s John Benjamin Hickey and Olivia Williams (Dollhouse), is built around the project’s need for secrecy and the lies that are part of the lives of everyone in peripherally involved.
Check out the potentially explosive first trailer after the jump. Manhattan premieres on Sunday, July 27th(9/8C).
