Melanie - should need no introduction lol
Salem is one of my all time favorite shows. Complete at 3 seasons, because the writers knew what the plan was when they started, they were able to make an ending that even I will rewatch.
Taking actual events and characters from history, and putting a very magical spin on them, Salem is one of the darker TV shows that I watch (and coming from me you know that means it is DARK!) This is actually one of the TV shows Telfie was partnered with so I got to chat with writers and the network as Season 3 unfolded which was amazing. You can watch my totally cringy video from 6 years ago about the release of Season 3 below (or skip it - I mean I am very glad that my videos have improved lol).
All 3 seasons are currently streaming for free in the US on the CW app. I highly suggest if you like dark and witchy that you check it out!

This is one of those series that had been in my maybe watch pile and that was "Salem".
I’m really glad Mels suggested we watch it while I was up there and I absolutely love a good historical whether it be in movie, show or book. I’m sure we’ve all heard the stories of Salem and the witch trials that happened there. Before actually watching Salem I thought they’d stick to the history that I learned in school, but nope. New story but with same characters and honestly with this it works. I actually think that I prefer this way than what actually happened. It’s kind of just a bit more interesting and that’s probably why they did it this way-- to keep the audience interested. With this being an older show there might have been alot who have seen it already. Then again you may be like me and have not so I really won’t go into spoiler territory.
Like the actual historical events, you do have Mary and John, though in this version Mary is with John, and an actual witch. John is not married and wants to be with Mary. See how this twists the actual history? Well if you haven’t seen this show that will leave you on the edge of your seat, and if you like history like me, then definitely add this show to your must watch list.
