Second Season of the Witch Drama Premieres Summer 2021
In the anticipated second season of “MOTHERLAND: FORT SALEM,” premiering summer 2021, Raelle, Tally and Abigail confront higher stakes, dangerous magic and a new threat from an ancient group of witch-hunters, the Camarilla. In the first season, we saw our trio of young witches follow in the footsteps of their foremothers, defending the nation from The Spree as part of the United States Army. Their training is intensified when they are promoted to attend War College, where their magic, relationships and beliefs will be pushed to the limits. While General Alder seeks out new witches to join the wars to come, The Spree and the Army learn their fight may no longer be with one another. But how can two enemies work together to thwart a hatred that won’t stop until all witches are exterminated? “Motherland: Fort Salem” stars Taylor Hickson, Jessica Sutton, Ashley Nicole Williams, Amalia Holm, Demetria McKinney and Lyne Renee. It is written and created by Eliot Laurence. With Laurence, Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Kevin Messick are executive producers. Amanda Tapping, Erin Maher, Kay Reindl and Bryan Q. Miller will also serve as executive producers on the series.
Welcome to the newly revamped Kai Bradbury Central, where we have just updated the site with a brand new theme, Creating Art [V2] made by the amazing Gemma over at Gratrix Designs. Of course with the new theme, we have a TON of new content and updates to go along with the beautiful new theme which I’ve listed all the changes below!
Of course with the new theme, I figured it was time to redo all the pages to make the site look completely new as we celebrate being online for 6 months already, with doing nothing but supporting Kai, who has been supportive of us since the very first day!
Multimedia: was tweaked slightly to look more organized, although it virtually remained unchanged.
Online: reorganized completely and added several new pages, updated the old pages and cleaned it up overall.
Career: With Kai’s career growing with each new month that passes, we re-organized the page completely instead of having everything on one page it now shows a more in-depth look and each career page (with all the info on it) was updated to be even more in-depth.
Kai Bradbury: Complete overhaul done on the page, added a longer biography (including career highlights), updated the facts, added more statistics, added even more pages (information/support) which dives deeper into information on Kai and the many ways you can support him.
Press Archive: *NEW CONTENT ALL TOGETHER* The press archive will continuously be worked on but it will hold all of Kai’s interviews (video/magazine/online articles, etc) in one place from the start of his career to now.
This just highlights other minor changes, that doesn’t affect anything overall.

“Motherland: Fort Salem,” Freeform’s fierce genre thriller, has been picked up for a second season and Lyne Renee (General Alder) has been upped to series regular.

The series stars Taylor Hickson, Jessica Sutton, Ashley Nicole Williams, Amalia Holm, Demetria McKinney and Lyne Renee. “Motherland: Fort Salem” is written and created by Eliot Laurence, with Laurence, Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Kevin Messick as executive producers.

“I could not be more grateful for the chance to keep exploring the world of ‘Motherland: Fort Salem,’” said Laurence. “Freeform has been such a fabulous home for us through the development process, production, post and marketing. I’m also blown away by the love we’ve gotten from our fans, whose excitement and passion played a massive part in this renewal. Thank you, witches!”
Kai is on a role with interviews as of late as he tackles another interview discussing his latest role as Gerit Buttonwood in Motherland: Fort Salem. You can read the entire interview below.
Actor Kai Bradbury is a man on a mission. Having grown up surrounded by the arts, Kai credits his exposure to different mediums for helping him develop his voice as an individual and as a creative. And as Hollywood makes inroads towards greater representation, Kai hopes to do his part by paving the way for the next generation of up-and-comers of mixed race or Asian descent with projects like Motherland: Fort Salem.
Set in an alternate America where witches ended their persecution three hundred years ago by cutting an agreement to fight for their government, Motherland: Fort Salem follows three recruits who go from basic training in combat magic to early deployment. Kai’s character, Gerit Buttonwood, is the “object of desire” for one of those recruits. It’s a role that means not only a great deal to Kai but also to a community who wants to see themselves properly represented on screen.
Kai is on a roll with the interviews as his interview rounds continue with TVGoodness’ interview! You can read the full excerpt below to know more! He also talks about his previous projects.
While women awesomely take front and center on Motherland, there are characters of the male persuasion present. One of these guys is Gerit, played by Canadian Kai Bradbury.
This season Gerit and Tally quickly sparked a connection that beautifully came to life in episode four at the celebration known as Beltane. Then real life intruded in a big way. Tally found out Gerit’s engaged — it’s an arranged situation — but this was definitely a blow. However, the two have reunited despite the less-than-ideal circumstances. Who knows how long they can keep their reconnected relationship on the down low.
TV Goodness recently sent a few questions over to Bradbury, who answered via email. The Japanese and Scottish actor talks about Motherland, his character’s relationship with Tally, and he gives us the rundown of some of his most significant professional experiences to date.
Set in an alternate America where witches ended their persecution by cutting a deal with the government to fight for the country, Motherland: Fort Salem follows three young women from training to deployment, as they fight terrorist threats with supernatural tactics.
Tackling the current uncertainty of the world, our story follows high schoolers weighed down by the fear of the future losing themselves in a whirlpool of a graduation party to ignore their anxieties… also the world is ending.
