LOS ANGELES, August 25, 2016 – In anticipation of the season three premiere of WGN America’s hit supernatural thriller “Salem,” the network has released character portraits featuring the twisted and sexy cast, including the first-look at Samuel Roukin who portrays The Sentinel, a fallen angel and protector of the Devil boy (Oliver Bell). Season three of “Salem” will debut Halloween Week, Wednesday, November 2.
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” stars Janet Montgomery (Amateur Night, "Human Target," "Made in Jersey") as Mary Sibley, Shane West ("Nikita," "ER") as Captain John Alden, Seth Gabel ("Arrow," "Fringe") as Cotton Mather, Ashley Madekwe ("Revenge") as Tituba, Tamzin Merchant ("Jane Eyre") as Anne Hale, Elise Eberle ("The Astronaut Farmer") as Mercy Lewis, Iddo Goldberg ("Mob City") as Isaac Walton, Joe Doyle ("Raw") as Baron Sebastian Marburg, Oliver Bell ("The Saint") as Mary’s son. New this season is Samuel Roukin (“Turn) as The Sentinel.
Created and written by Brannon Braga and Adam Simon, “Salem" is executive produced by Braga, Simon, Kelly Souders, Brian Peterson and The Firm’s Jeff Kwatinetz and Josh Barry. The series is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios.
