At Friday's Television Critics Association (TCA) winter press event, Freeform worked a little magic for fans of Motherland: Fort Salem. During the panel event, Walt Disney Television's young adult network announced that the Eliot Laurence-created series would be heading back to screens during Summer 2021. In addition, the cabler also released an overview of what viewers can expect when the series returns.
Freeform's supernatural-drama series learned it would be returning for a second season back in May 2020, when we also learned that Lyne Renee's General Alder is being promoted to series regular. The Freeform series follows three military cadet witches in an alternate, present-day America where witches ended their persecution over 300 years ago by cutting a deal with the U.S. government to fight for their country with supernatural tactics and weapons. Here's a look at the season renewal announcement video:
In the anticipated second season of "MOTHERLAND: FORT SALEM," premiering summer 2021, Raelle, Tally and Abigail confront higher stakes, dangerous magic and a new threat from an ancient group of witch-hunters, the Camarilla. 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?
