WGN America’s “Salem” Comes to an End

Currently in its third season on WGN America, “Salem” has been cancelled and will not appear on the network following its finale in early 2017. The show, which is a retelling of the 17th century Salem witch trials, was not without its fans as the premiere drew in 1.5 million viewers according to Deadline.

“Salem”, which debuted in 2014 was created by Adam Simon and Brannon Braga and was the first scripted television series to run on the WGN America network. Fans of the show will not have to worry about the show coming to an abrupt end with no real ending (those old enough will remember that happening with the show “It’s Your Move” starring a young Jason Bateman), Braga and Simon said in a statement that, “we knew this would be the final season and were able to craft an exciting climax to Mary’s transformational saga.”

Matt Cherniss, president of WGN America added that “Salem is a fantastic show that greatly contributed to our successful launch into original programming.”
