Here's our first official look at Lucy Lawless in full creepy Salem season 2 trailer

The first full trailer for the second season of Salem has been released, revealing our first awesome look at Lucy Lawless in a new witchy role.

This dark new trailer released by WGN America gives us our first-ever look at Xena and Spartacus' Lucy Lawless, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’s Stuart Townsend, in the upcoming second season of the supernatural horror series. Lawless has joined the cast in a recurring capacity as Countess Marburg, who is “one of the last remaining survivors of the legendary line of ancient German witches.” Townsend plays an English aristocrat named Samuel Wainwright. His character is said to be a “doctor looking to uncover the secrets of Salem and keep his own from those who would seek to discover them.” Sounds pretty good to us!

The gist of the story is this: It’s the dawn of the Witch War, and Salem’s most powerful witch, Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery), will face off against old and new adversaries who will vie for her throne, while disease and and devastation are unleashed by a deadly supernatural ritual on the 17th-century town.

Have a look, and be prepared to never be able to listen to that "Hush, Little Baby" lullaby again without getting some major, creepy vibes:

Salem will return on April 5. Are you looking forward to seeing fan favorite Lucy Lawless on the horror TV series?
