Salem, Lucy Lawless


Can Salem handle a Warrior Princess? Xena star Lucy Lawless joins the cast of the spooky drama for season two and she is predictably bringing danger along with her. And she's not the only new face coming to town!

The creepy and tense trailer is just a tease of what's to come when the WGN America series returns for a second season on Sunday, April 5 at 10 p.m. Yep, the "Hush, Little Baby" lullaby has never been creepier thanks to Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery).

Lawless plays Countess Marburg, one of the last descendants of a legendary line of German witches. Other newcomers this year include Stuart Townsend as Samuel Wainwright as a mysterious doctor, Joe Doyle as Baron Sebastian Marbug, son to the Countess, and Oliver Bell as Mary's long-lost son who was revealed to be alive in the season one finale.

The witch war begins at the start of season two with Mary at the center of it all. Can she fend off the new and old from taking her throne? And what of the fates of Captain Jon Alden (Shane West), Cotton Mather (Seth Gabel), Tituba (Ashley Madekwe), Anne Hale (Tamzin Merchant) and Mercy Lewis (Elisa Eberle)? Captain Jon Alden wasn't looking too good in the trailer above.

Salem returns on Sunday, April 5 at 10 p.m. on WGN America.
