If you look below, you can see a first-look trailer for the spin-off featuring a wide array of different locales, plus the return of Kristian Alfonso to the series! The storylines are very much Days, as there are notes of romance, betrayal, and a whole lot more. If you’ve loved the original for years, it feels pretty much like a sure thing you’ll enjoy this.
Season 2 of Beyond Salem is going to premiere on July 11, and the plan is to run one of the five episodes every day until the finale on July 16. The daily rollout should feel familiar to fans, just in a slightly different medium. The setting will be what startles the senses a bit more; characters will be seen everywhere from Hong Kong to Monte Carlo as opposed to just the trademark town iconic for this series.
Without even seeing the new season, it feels easy to proclaim that producing this show is a heck of a smart move for Peacock time and time again. They are more than likely aware of the fact that they need to get more soap-opera fans on streaming, and this is a way to recruit them. Adding some familiar faces never hurts here, either. We don’t want to start talking about a possible season 3 here just yet, but it feels like something the streaming service should consider if they are really serious about recruiting some of these people in the long-term.
