WGN’s “Salem,” TV Land’s “Impastor” Cancelled

WGN America has cancelled its witch drama “Salem” with the current third season to be its last. The season finale on January 18th will now serve as the series finale.

Brannon Braga and Adam Simon produced the series which marked the cable network’s first entry into scripted original programming and starred the likes of Janet Montgomery, Shane West and Seth Gabel.

Braga says they knew ahead of time that this would be the final season and so were “able to craft an exciting climax to Mary’s transformational saga”. This, along with the cancellation of “Manhattan,” leaves WGN America with just “Underground” and “Outsiders” which will both score second seasons in 2017.

Meanwhile TV Land has axed its single-camera comedy “Impastor” starring Michael Rosenbaum. The cancellation comes after two seasons on the Viacom-owned cable network.

The comedy centered on a low-life (Rosenbaum) who hides out in a small town by conning the residents into thinking he’s their newly hired gay pastor.
