New scorching hot Salem promo looks ahead at a spellbinding Season 3

Warning: Spoilers for the Season 3 premiere of Salem below!

You’ve been warned! Last chance to avert your eyes …

… right, on with it.

Ding-dong, the witch is back! Salem returned for a hotly anticipated third season last night, which saw the triumphant return of one Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery) from the dead. Following the premiere, WGN America released an exciting new promo giving us a sneak peek at the horror TV show’s coming season, and you can have a look below.

To briefly sum this up, the show picked up right where we left off. The Devil is in Salem in the form of John Alden (Shane West) and Mary's young son, John Jr. (Oliver Bell). Cotton Mather (Seth Gabel) is still being controlled by his loving wife, Anne Hale (Tamzin Merchant). John is mourning the loss of his true love, and Isaac (Iddo Goldberg) has grown a pair (good for him!).

Elsewhere in town, Baron Sebastian Margurg (Joe Doyle) is still pining over Mary while doing Satan’s bidding; Mercy (Elise Eberle) is still being Mercy and Tituba (Ashley Madekwe) finds a new purpose — resurrecting Mary (praise the TV gods that they didn't drag this out) in order to bring about the downfall of the Lord of Hell. Also, we got to meet The Sentinel, played by Samuel Roukin (Turn: Washington’s Spies). Here’s a short 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. In the most twisted season yet, legendary recording artist Marilyn Manson guest stars as the bloody barber surgeon Thomas Dinley.

Take a look at the sneak peek below, and let us know what you guys thought of the Season 3 premiere of Salem.
