When WGN's Salem returns for it's second season, it will be adding Lucy Lawless and Stuart Townsend to the cast.
Lucy Lawless, from Xena: Warrior Princess and Battlestar Galactica, will join the cast as Countess Marburg, a German witch who is one of the last of her kind in an ancient bloodline of witches.
Stuart Townsend, from Queen Of The Damned and the short lived TV show Betrayal, will play an English aristocrat named Samuel Wainwright, a doctor who wants to expose Salem’s dark secrets while also keeping his own hidden.
Lawless and Townsend will join the cast as recurring characters while Joe Doyle and Oliver Bell have joined the cast as series regulars, each playing a son to one of the series’ established cast.
Salem returns to WGN for it's second season this April.
