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.

For comparisons: The first season of Salem averaged a 0.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic with approximately 690,000 viewers (some total viewer numbers for the first season were not available).
What do you think? Do you like the Salem TV show? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a third season?
This has been a very entertaining show and I want to see season 3. Please do not cancel!
I really love this show, my favorite of all time!!! Please hurry for season 3, Iam way past withdraw, need ssalem right now!!!!!!
why so long….I really like this show and miss it.
I really miss it too Jane. Good news, though. They HAVE started filming the third season! I was worried they were going end cancelling it, but right now it is scheduled to begin with the fall line up, or just a bit earlier….
Season 3 will begin in the fall of 2016
Why is this show not more popular? It is one of the best shows I have ever seen.
I’m truly surprised the ratings aren’t higher. it has to be that people don’t know about it. If it were just a show about Salem 1692 that would be enough, but it’s so much more. Having choices that are bad and worse. Doing the wrong things for the right reason. The slippery line between justifiable and depraved. And there is nothing, NOTHING, quite as evil and dangerous as love….
I can’t get enough of this show!!!! I never knew about this show until I gave it try on Netflix. I don’t think many people know about it. If they cancel it, Netflix should definitely pick it back up.
As in your comments, we just discovered Salem on Netflix and have watched the entire first season. It’s so addicting!! The best show we’ve seen in a long, long time. Hoping it gets renewed for multiple seasons!
I love this show and all of the actors. The costumes and acting are wonderful. The show is creative and not run of the mill garbage on T.V.. Please renew Salem for a third season.
PLEASE renew the show for a third season – and bring Mary back. Excellent writing and excelling acting. Definitely want to see it next year – there’s nothing else like it!
