Motherland: Fort Salem gives us witch fans something to look forward to. Best of all the premiere is set for tonight. This gives horror fans a twofer in terms of genre based offerings. Both Motherland: Fort Salem and True Terror with Robert Englund air tonight on their respective channels.
The synopsis for Motherland: Fort Salem goes like this:
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. The series also stars Ashley Nicole Williams, Jessica Sutton, Taylor Hickson, Demetria McKinney and Amalia Holm. “Motherland: Fort Salem” is executive produced by Eliot Laurence, Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Kevin Messick, Maria Maggenti and Steven Adelson.
Sounds and looks cool to us. Witches made into soldiers? Sounds anime and we are in.
Motherland: Fort Salem premieres Weds, March 18 at 9pm/8c on Freeform.
