Salem raises the dead in season three premiere

Season three of Salem promises new scares and new faces, including Marilyn Manson joining the cast as a sadistic barber and surgeon who is all too eager with his blade

Salem is back for season three and in this premiere episode the townsfolk come to a terrifying conclusion about surviving their current satanic predicament.

In dark times they say people will take to dark practices and so it appears in Salem as necromancy is invoked and the dead rise.

The dead sleep easy right?
The dead sleep easy right?

Like many civilisations in the past as times gets desperate they take extreme measures, even though they are unsure of the consequences.

But as with all dark things, what you expect is seldom what you get and when you raise the dead you never know for sure what’s coming.

Salem is set in 17th century colonial Massachusetts and tells the story behind the historic town, except in this version the witches are real. The supernatural mixes with politics and land feuds to provide some memorable drama and of course plenty of scares!

Watch the Salem season three premiere – After the Fall at 9 PM on WGN America.
