When will Season 3 of Salem be on Netflix?

Horror TV series Salem is returning after what seems like an eternity after the second season wrapped up in June 2015. The new series, currently scheduled for its first episode to be released on WGM America on November 2nd, 2016 will just miss Halloween, but we thought we’d give horror fans an update as to when the new season will release on Netflix. 

Normally when you look for a supernatural drama on Netflix you’re usually swayed towards The CW’s efforts in The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, and The Originals but for some, they’re simply not dark enough, and that’s where we think Salem fits the gap quite nicely.

The series takes us back to the 17th century where witch hunting is rife and is partially inspired by the real events that took place in the witch trials.

For those of you who have either cut the cord or have absolutely no idea what network WGN America is on, we’ve got some details about a potential Netflix release date, so you don’t have to worry any longer.

Given WGN doesn’t have that many original shows it’s hard to take a look at the board and see when its shows usually release onto Netflix. The past two seasons have released on Netflix at different times of the year. The first season was added in October 2014 and the second season arrived in March 2016. There’s no rhythm or reason for this which makes predicting a new date hard.

The new season is likely to wrap up on WGN in January 2017 and if they stick to the new release schedule which would mean season 4 will release in November 2017, we think Netflix may get the new season as early as March 2017 with October 2017 being the latest we think it’ll get the new season.

That’s of course if another streaming provider doesn’t snap up the show before hand. We hope that gives you some insight as to when we might get season 3 of Salem on Netflix, let us know in the comments whether or not you’ll be waiting.
