Marking the first original scripted drama on the cable channel, "Salem" ended its second season on June 28 with an average of 1.1 million total viewers and 545,000 in adults 18-49 on Sundays, with seven days of delayed viewing.
Production on the third season will begin later this year in Shreveport, La. for a 2016 premiere. Stopping by the Entertainment Weekly Lounge at Comic-Con with his other cast members, star %cSeth Gabel% teased a crazier season 3.
"What's so exciting about a third season, what I love about this show is it keeps going and going deeper down the rabbit hole," Gabel claimed. "It's not something where's its like a procedural where it resets itself every week. This just means we're going to be able to go even further than we did before.... If you saw how crazy season 2 was, we're going to get even more so."
