Image of the Day: Salem has gone to a bloody, fiery Hell in new Season 3 art

WGN America has released some amazing new key art that looks like a beautiful, intricate medieval tapestry (kudos to the graphic artists on this one) for the upcoming third season of its hit horror series Salem, as well as officially announcing the premiere air date.

Season 3 will see the return of most of your favorite characters, including: Janet Montgomery as Mary Sibley, Shane West as Captain John Alden, Seth Gabel as Cotton Mather, Ashley Madekwe as Tituba, Tamzin Merchant as Anne Hale, Elise Eberle as Mercy Lewis, Iddo Goldberg as Isaac Walton, Joe Doyle as Baron Sebastian Marburg and Oliver Bell as Mary and John’s young son.

New players this year will include recording artist Marilyn Manson as the bloody barber surgeon, Thomas Dinley, and TURN: Washington’s Spies’ Samuel Roukin as The Sentinel.

The third season of Salem dawns with the triumph of the witches' plan to remake the New World by bringing the devil to earth and making Salem his capital.  But the devil is a liar, and instead of a New World free from murderous Puritan hypocrisy, his own plan will bring nothing but death and slavery with the ultimate aim of leading humanity to destroy itself.  And there's only one person on earth who can beat the devil -- the very witch that birthed him, his mother, Mary Sibley.  The only problem is—she's dead.  Or is she?

Salem will return on our TV screens during Halloween Week on Wednesday, Nov. 2, at 9 p.m. Check out the intricate key art (click on the pic to embiggen it), and chime in with your thoughts below. Are you looking forward to Season 3?
