Elise Eberle's Mercy Lewis prepares for the Witch War by crafting a sturdy helmet in the new trailer for Season 2 of Salem. The first trailer released last month featured Janet Montgomery's Mary Sibley calling for war. The Grand Rite triggered at the end of last season is now underway and death is in the air, but the Witch War is just beginning - and Salem is at the epicenter of both. In order to bring her plan to completion, Mary Sibley must not only control Captain John Alden (Shane West) and the citizens of Salem, but also those lurking in the shadows who seek the power she wields.

Salem boldly re-imagines the Infamous witch trials in the 17th century Massachusetts town. The storyline follows Captain John Alden returning from war to his hometown of Salem, where he finds it in the grip of a witch panic and discovers that his lost love, Mary Sibley, is now married to his old nemesis George Sibley. Throughout the fiery first season filled with wicked deceit and shocking revelations, the two must navigate a world where horror, hysteria and the Supernatural reign. At the end of season one, John commits to risking his life for his one true love, even after learning Mary is a witch and at the center of the hysteria plaguing Salem.
