‘Motherland Fort Salem’ is a supernatural drama that entwines coming-of-age elements with alternative history, fantasy, and feminism. As described by The Hollywood Reporter, the “wildly ambitious and gorgeously otherworldly” show combines “flying drug trips, strength-enhancing orgies, and brilliantly novel aesthetics” to create a story that is a “marriage between military chic and Goth motifs.” That being said, its first installment recently ended its run with a twisty finale. Let’s now answer the next inevitable question: Will there be a ‘Motherland Fort Salem’ season 2? Read on.

The season 1 finale sees Raelle, Abigail, and Tally graduating from Basic Training, and accompanying General Alder to rescue the Tarim witches. However, after their mission, they are attacked by the Camaria and Raelle suffers a stab wound. The others leave on a helicopter but Abigail refuses to leave.
