Freeform has debuted a new Motherland: Fort Salem trailer, and we finally know when the series will be making its debut.
We’re always a sucker for alternate history stories, and a world where witches joined the U.S. military to end the Salem Witch Trials definitely has out attention. Throw in witch terrorists and we can’t wait to check out this series.
Set in an alternate America where witches ended their persecution over 300 years ago by cutting a deal with the government to fight for their country, “Motherland: Fort Salem” follows three young women from basic training in combat magic into early deployment. In this world, the traditional roles of gender and power are flipped, with the more dominant women on the front lines fighting looming terrorist threats that are familiar to our world—but with supernatural tactics and weapons.
Motherland: Fort Salem will debut on Freeform on March 18, 2020.
