Motherland: Fort Salem is an American drama series created by Eliot Laurence that premiered on Freeform on March 18, 2020.[1]

The show is about a trio of witches who are trained to become powerful weapons for the American military.

Synopsis Edit

Set in an alternate America where witches ended their persecution nearly 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 early deployment.

In this world, the traditional roles of gender and power are flipped, with the more dominant women on the front lines fighting looming terrorist threats that are familiar to our world—but with supernatural tactics and weapons.
