“Motherland: Fort Salem” follows three young women from basic training in combat magic to the terror of early deployment. In this world, the traditional roles of gender and power are flipped, with women on the frontlines.
“Every time we get to dive back into the world of ‘Motherland: Ford Salem,’ it’s a pleasure and an honor,” Laurence added. “I can’t wait to bring season three to the world. We plan to ramp up the insane stakes of the finale with an epic, scary, satisfying ride, all the while getting deeper into witch’s ancient origins. We are so grateful to Freeform for the opportunity, and to our fans — your love is palpable, wait till you see what we have in store.”
Season 2 saw the witches confront a new threat from an ancient group of witch hunters, the Camarilla. Reluctantly working with the Spree, the trio’s training intensified while their magic, relationships and beliefs were pushed to the limits. “Motherland: Fort Salem” is executive produced by Laurence, Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Kevin Messick and Amanda Tapping.
