Salem is a historical drama that aired on WGN America, the network's first original series. It is based on the real Salem witch trials that occurred in 1692.

Salem tells the fictional story of the infamous Salem witch trials, which were not the last, in the 17th century in colonial Massachusetts, when the government was dominated by Puritan leaders. It questions whether the Puritans were right in their actions, whether the people punished were innocent, and centers on the "real witches" who were a part of day-to-day life, but were not who or what they seemed to be.
