WGN America has released four posters for the upcoming second season of Salem and it seems like the war for control of Salem has only just begun.

Season two of Salem finds Mary Sibley at the top of the proverbial mountain, as she was the only witch in existence capable of implementing the Grand Rite. All the years she spent toiling away, all the sacrifices she made for her ultimate goal – they were all worth it, especially considering she got back the son she gave away to get her supernatural abilities in the first place. But with great power comes great responsibility and now, instead of being able to operate in the shadows and slip back into the safety of the politician’s wife role she played, every move Mary makes takes place in the spotlight. And that attention can only breed the case against her, those witches who dream of knocking her off the throne and taking her place as the purported chosen one. Will Mary come to regret the time and effort she spent getting to this moment once she realizes just how many threats there are out there? Or could she be up for the challenge of defending her place in the witch world and dispatching all those who seek to trespass against her?

Joining the cast of Salem this season are Lucy Lawless (Spartacus: Blood and Sand) as Countess Marburg, one of the last in an ancient line of German witches; Stuart Townsend (Betrayal) as English aristocrat Samuel Wainwright, who makes it his mission to uncover the secrets lying within Salem; and Joe Doyle (Raw) as Sebastian, the cultured son of Countess Marburg.

The second season of Salem premieres Sunday, April 5th at 10:00 on WGN America. You can check out teasers for the second season here and here.

Will you be watching the second season of Salem? Which of the four posters is your favorite? Do you think Mary will be able to handle on to the power she gained last season throughout the course of season two?
