On the eve of the debut season finale of Freeform supernatural drama Motherland: Fort Salem has been renewed for a second season.
Set in an alternate, present-day America, Motherland: Fort Salem tells the story of witches who ended their persecution more than 300 years ago by cutting a deal with the U.S. government to fight for their country with supernatural tactics and weapons.
The show stars Taylor Hickson, Jessica Sutton, Ashley Nicole Williams, Amalia Holm and Demetria McKinney. Lyne Renée, who recurred in Season 1 as General Alder, will be a series regular when the show returns next season.
Everything’s Gonna Be OK the freshman comedy has also been renewed by Freeform. It stars Josh Thomas (Please Like Me) as Nicholas, a neurotic twenty-something who is forced to raise his two teenage half-sisters, one of whom is on the autism spectrum, after the unexpected death of their father.
Lauren Corrao, Freeform’s executive vice president of original programming had this to say:
“Each show’s originality, characters and themes struck a chord with our audience, and we’re excited to share the ambitious stories the writers have planned for Season 2. We have a strong slate ahead, and with our young adult audience coming of age in a time that will forever impact their lives, we owe it to them to tell bold, authentic stories that reflect who they are and where they are going.”
