Everything in Salem is going to Hell when the horror series returns for a third season on Halloween weekend, and ahead of the Salem panel at San Diego Comic-Con this coming Friday, WGN America has released the first exciting Season 3 trailer.

Starring Janet Montgomery, Shane West, Seth Gabel, Ashley Madekwe, Tamzin Merchant, Elise Eberle, Iddo Goldberg, Joe Doyle, Oliver Bell and Marilyn Manson in a guest-starring stint (last season had Lucy Lawless), the third season picks up right where we left off, with Mary Sibley having given her life for her true love, John Alden, and their young son having become the devil incarnate. Here’s the Season 3 synopsis:

The third season of “Salem” dawns with the triumph of the witches' plan to remake the New World by bringing the devil to earth and making Salem his capital.  But the devil is a liar, and instead of a New World free from murderous Puritan hypocrisy, his own plan will bring nothing but death and slavery with the ultimate aim of leading humanity to destroy itself.  And there's only one person on earth who can beat the devil -- the very witch that birthed him, his mother, Mary Sibley.  The only problem is—she's dead.  Or is she?

Ding-dong, the witch is dead back! Salem was created and written by Brannon Braga and Adam Simon, and is executive-produced by Braga, Simon, Kelly Souders, Brian Peterson and Prospect Park’s Jeff Kwatinetz and Josh Barry. It's produced by Fox 21 Television Studios. 

If you happen to be at SDCC on Friday, actors Shane West, Janet Montgomery, Seth Gabel, Iddo Goldberg and Elise Eberle, as well as Brannon Braga and Adam Simon, will reveal some cool new footage at the panel, followed by a Q&A.
