Tv Season Info

When Season 2 of the supernatural horror series begins, the consequences of the Grand Rite are apparent: Salem is afflicted by a terrible plague and a witch war is on the horizon. Mary (Janet Montgomery) is reunited with her son (Oliver Bell); trying to seize power, Mercy (Elise Eberle) kills the Elders, effectively starting an open fight with the remaining witches; Anne (Tamzin Merchant) is learning about her powers while keeping them secret; John's (Shane West) fate is revealed; Cotton (Seth Gabel) deals with his failures and his father's death. But Salem's biggest threat comes in the form of the Countess (Lucy Lawless), an original witch that is trying to raise the devil. It's soon revealed that Mary's son is possessed by the Dark Lord himself, and this starts a full-scale witch war that could destroy the town—and the entire world.

Critic Reviews for Salem: Season 2

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

The series is ... a dark fantasy ruled by nightmare logic that sets its characters in a graphically grim and grimy 17th century and overwhelms its contemporary audience with some fairly incredible special effects and truly bewitching actresses.

Salem's managed to carve out a nice, little disturbing niche for itself in the arena of supernatural horror TV.

After a slow burn 1st season, Salem S2 kicks the doors open and is set to go full throttle with the cray. Crow Penises, Plagues and More, Oh My!

What Salem does provide is a consistently entertaining show-with a surprising amount of social commentary-that just might attract more eyes to it as it continues.
