Settle into the spooky season with 2 new Salem Season 3 promos

Salem is creeping back into our lives with its Season 3 premiere on Nov. 2, and the creators are making sure you're scared straight out of your skin before Halloween hits by sharing two scary new promo spots.

If you've never watched this unsettling series you owe it to yourself to jump into the new season and absorb some petrifying Puritan-style horror of the highest magnitude. The first clip is a seriously twisted version of the old Cat's Cradle string-finger game offering some horrific consequences, with the second preview focusing on the upcoming scares to behold including killer bugs, fire belching, a murder of crows and Marilyn Manson.  

Now what could possibly be more frightening than that?

Here's the official synopsis:

The devil has arrived in “Salem,” and everything he promised the witches is a lie! He has his own plans that will bring nothing but death and destruction, and there’s only one person on earth that can stop him. The only problem is—she’s dead. Or is she? In the most twisted season yet, legendary recording artist Marilyn Manson guest stars as the bloody barber surgeon Thomas Dinley.

In the premiere episode, written by series creators Brannon Braga and Adam Simon and directed by Nick Copus, John Alden (Shane West) is forced to bury his love, Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery); and her mysterious servant Tituba (Ashley Madekwe), now with the abilities of the seer, has a horrifying vision of hell on earth. She knows the only person who can stop this evil and beat the devil (Oliver Bell) is the very witch that birthed him, his mother, Mary Sibley.

Meanwhile, Isaac (Iddo Goldberg) takes it upon himself to attempt to clean up Knocker’s Hole and get revenge against Mercy (Elise Eberle), who has found her calling running the brothel. Still struggling with her new powers, Anne Hale (Tamzin Merchant) continues to imprison her husband, Cotton Mather (Seth Gabel), using her familiar, Brown Jenkins. With the help of Baron Sebastian Marburg (Joe Doyle) and his old ally and fallen angel, The Sentinel (Samuel Roukin), the devil is planning a massive attack and war with God that will culminate in the ultimate showdown between good and evil!

Heralding the witchy holiday, WGN America will air the series pilot episode for fans to relive the magic on Halloween night, Monday, October 31 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Starring Janet Montgomery, Shane West, Ashley Madekwe, Elise Eberle and Iddo Goldberg, Salem Season 3 returns on Nov. 2 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
