Witchy New Series 'Fort Salem' Coming To The BBC Is Giving Us Serious 'Charmed' Vibes

If you loved Charmed, the classic 90s show that saw a trio of female witches battle against the forces of evil, then a series coming to BBC Three could bring the same kind of magic into your life.

Fort Salem (also known as Motherland: Fort Salem) will get its UK premiere on Sunday 26th July at 6am, it has been announced.

The ten-episodes series follows three sisters who discover that they are descendants of a line of female witches who are destined to fight for the good of the world using their combined powers of witchcraft.

Big Charmed vibes already, right?

Fort Salem plays out in a reimagining of modern-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.

Created by Eliot Laurence, the drama series stars Taylor Hickson, Jessica Sutton, Ashley Nicole Williams, Amalia Holm, Demetria McKinney and Lyne Renee.

The show is produced by Freeform Studios - who have happily ordered a second season, so there are more episodes in store, too.

As yet, we don't know when the second season is likely to air in the UK but we'll let you know as soon as we have further details.

Talking about when he pitched the idea for Fort Salem to Freeform with Den of Geek, show creator Laurence said: "Originally I was thinking about a witchy Gossip Girl with some sort of secret witch school in New York City that was very fancy."

He continued: "It just wasn't interesting to me. Then the military thing happened and it just had that kind of electric vibe that tells you have something cool."

Anything involving the witchy sisterhood kicking ass gets our vote, tbh.

Motherland: Fort Salem will get its UK premiere on BBC Three on Sunday 26th July at 6am.
