‘Motherland: Fort Salem’ Season 2 Premiering Tomorrow On BBC Three/iPlayer!
In something of a low-key announcement on social media, BBC Three has confirmed Season 2 of ‘Motherland: Fort Salem‘ will be dropping onto iPlayer from tomorrow!
‘Motherland: Fort Salem’ is set in an alternate, present-day America where witches ended their persecution 300 years ago by cutting a deal with the burgeoning U.S. government to fight for their country. The drama follows three young women from basic training in combat magic into terrifying and thrilling early deployment. In this world, the traditional roles of gender and power are flipped, with women on the front lines fighting looming terrorist threats that are strikingly familiar to our world, but with supernatural tactics and weapons.
In the first season, we saw our trio of young witches follow in the footsteps of their foremothers, defending the nation from The Spree as part of the United States Army. Their training is intensified when they are promoted to attend War College, where their magic, relationships and beliefs will be pushed to the limits. While General Alder seeks out new witches to join the wars to come, The Spree and the Army learn their fight may no longer be with one another. But how can two enemies work together to thwart a hatred that won’t stop until all witches are exterminated?
The second season continues as Raelle, Tally and Abigail confront higher stakes, dangerous magic and a new threat from an ancient group of witch hunters, The Camarilla.
The series stars Taylor Hickson, Jessica Sutton, Ashley Nicole Williams, Amalia Holm, Demetria McKinney and Lyne Renée. It is written and created by Eliot Laurence. With Laurence, Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Kevin Messick are executive producers. Amanda Tapping, Erin Maher, Kay Reindl and Bryan Q. Miller also serve as executive producers on the series. The series was recently renewed for a 3rd and final season.
‘Motherland: Fort Salem‘ Season 2 premieres Sunday, 12th September 2021 on BBC Three/iPlayer.
