Watch Salem

Salem is a dark and moody historical show with a supernatural twist. Loosely inspired by the real Salem Witch Trials that took place in Salem Massachusetts during the late 17th Century, it posits an alternate theory to the one we know; what if the witches were not only real but actually behind the tragic events.

Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery) is a young woman living in the Puritanical town of Salem. She is unwed and pregnant and facing the punishment and humiliation of being put in the stocks and branded. She chooses instead to sell her soul to the devil with the help of a powerful sorceress, becoming a powerful witch in the process.

Cotton Mather (Seth Gabel) is a corrupt preacher who is convinced that the witches are not only real but a dire threat to the souls of the villagers. He leads the witch trials that precipitate the action of the series.

Created by Adam Simon and Brannon Braga, the show also stars Ashley Madekwe, Shane West, and Tamzin Merchant.
