Kittens, as Acadia Eisenstein accurately predicted, it looks like it truly is turning into the season of the witch in movies and tv this year. With the success of occult-themed shows like Sleepy Hollow and American Horror Story: Coven, a bevy of dramatized witches is beginning to materialize on the entertainment landscape. Coming this spring from WGN is Salem, a supernatural drama set during the Colonial witch trials in the 1600’s, a time when belief in and persecution of witches was not only common, but legally sanctioned.
“Set in the volatile world of 17th century Massachusetts, ‘Salem’ explores what really fueled the town’s infamous witch trials and dares to uncover the dark, supernatural truth hiding behind the veil of this infamous period in American history. In Salem, witches are real, but they are not who or what they seem.”
