In the premiere episode of SALEM (Sunday, April 20 at 9 p.m. ET), after 10 years of service fighting in the French and Indian War, John Alden (Shane West) returns to his home in Salem, Massachusetts, intent on reuniting with his love, Mary (Janet Montgomery). Upon his arrival, he is stunned to discover that the town has been swept up in a wave of witch-hunt hysteria, and that Mary has married the town’s richest and most powerful resident.

Montgomery stars as Mary Sibley, Salem’s most powerful enchantress, and West as handsome, hardened war veteran John Alden. SALEM also stars Seth Gabel (ARROW) as local aristocrat Cotton Mather, who fans the flames of Salem’s witch hunt, and Ashley Madekwe (REVENGE) as Mary’s mysterious accomplice and confidante, Tituba. SALEM is produced by Fox 21, Prospect Park, and Braga Productions.
