Last year, WGN America began airing the Salem TV series, their first original scripted series. The ratings were good enough to see the series renewed for a second season called Salem: Witch War. Will there be a third season or, will it be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.
Set in the 17th century, Salem revolves around the Salem witch trials in colonial Massachusetts. While the town is engulfed in hysteria, John Alden (Shane West) and Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery) find themselves in the middle of an epic romance. The cast also includes Seth Gabel, Ashley Madekwe, Tamzin Merchant, Elise Eberle, Iddo Goldberg, Joe Doyle, and Oliver Bell.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
Final season averages: 0.13 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 350,000 total viewers.
