Disney has announced that the first season of the “Motherland: Fort Salem” will be coming to Disney+ on Friday 27th August.
Created by Eliot Laurence (who also created “Claws”), “Motherland: Fort Salem” is set in an alternate, present-day America where witches ended their persecution 300 years ago by cutting a deal with the U.S. government to fight for their country.
“Motherland: Fort Salem” follows three young women from basic training in combat magic into terrifying and thrilling early deployment. In this world, the traditional roles of gender and power are flipped with women on the front lines, the fight looming, and terrorist threats that are strikingly familiar to our world, but with supernatural tactics and weapons.
The first season is currently already available on Disney+ in some countries, including Canada and Australia. The show airs on Disney’s Freeform channel in the United States and can be streamed on Hulu. The series has previously been available in the United Kingdom on BBC Three. The second season is due to begin on Freeform in the US in June.
