2016 has been a tough year for many and especially so for Salem fans. Earlier this month, WGN America announced the series has been cancelled after three seasons. What we want to know is: Would you watch a fourth season of the supernatural drama?
Set in the late 17th century, the show centers on the people and events surrounding the infamous Salem witch trials. The cast includes Janet Montgomery, Shane West, Seth Gabel, Ashley Madekwe, Tamzin Merchant, Elise Eberle, Iddo Goldberg, and Joe Doyle.
Salem is WGN America longest-running original drama series. It debuted in April 2014 to a 0.51 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.52 million viewers. The numbers fell quite a bit as the season progressed and were even lower in season two.
The ratings in season three have taken an even bigger tumble in season three, which likely led to the show’s cancellation. So far, season three of Salem has averaged a 18-49 demo rating of 0.08 and 265,000 viewers total.
Despite the low numbers, the show does have a core group of fans that may not be ready to let it go.
