The Witch War is finally unleashed in new extended Salem season 2 trailer

WGN America has released a brand-new extended trailer for its hit supernatural horror series Salem, which is returning this Sunday with a fresh new 13-episode run.

It’s the dawn of the Witch War, and season two sees Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery) having just completed the Grand Rite that unleashed a devastating plague on the town of Salem. Death and disease spread, and Mary must face off against old friends and foes, including her servant, Tituba (Ashley Madekwe); her former protege, Mercy Lewis (Elise Eberle); and Anne Hale (Tamzin Merchant), who’s growing into her witchy powers and could be the most powerful of them all. New characters include the equally powerful Countess Marburg (Lucy Lawless), her son Baron Sebastian Marburg (Joe Doyle) and the mysterious Dr. Samuel Wainwright (Stuart Townsend). To make matters more complicated, Mary's long-lost son (Oliver Bell) pops up.

The love of Mary's life, John Alden (Shane West), who was left for dead last season, also returns to town in order to stop the woman he loves from destroying everyone and everything in her path, while Cotton Mather (Seth Gabel) will be looking for redemption. Have a look at the extended, full season trailer:

Salem returns for a second season on April 5 at 10 p.m. In the meanwhile, check up Blastr's set visit with show creators Brannon Braga and Adam Simon. Isn't it great that Salem still has witches among them?
