Just in time for Halloween, WGN America will be bringing back the popular ‘Salem’ series. The network has released a new trailer for the hit supernatural thriller, which will be premiering its third season this fall. “Salem,” featuring the bewitching cast, including renowned recording artist Marilyn Mason who will guest star this season as the bloody barber surgeon Thomas Dinley.

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?” the network teases.
