·3 min read

Hi, yes, hello! After almost a year of waiting, Motherland: Fort Salem finally returns with brand-new episodes soon, and I'm about to make this season my entire personality. So, apologies in advance.

Motherland: Fort Salem Season 2 ended on a massive cliffhanger, with Raelle (Taylor Hickson), Abigail (Ashley Nicole Williams), and Tally (Jessica Sutton) now on the run alongside Scylla (Amalia Holm) after being wrongly charged in the death of the vice president's daughter.

Also, the VP is actually working for The Camarilla, which should surprise no one.

There was also that heartbreaking moment when Raelle, Abigail, Tally, and Anacostia (Demetria McKinney) sadly said goodbye to General Alder (Lyne Renée), only for us to find out that she's still alive. The absolute chaos, I love this show so much.

According to Freeform, Season 3 of Motherland: Fort Salem picks up with Abigail, Tally, Raelle, and Scylla seeking protection alongside the Dodger community in Cession, but also trying to stay out of trouble. While witch hunters work against them from inside the White House, our favorite heroes must call upon ancient forces in the final battle for their very right to exist.

My girl Tally is continuing to deal with her abilities, and I already know that she's going to make me cry and scream and jump up and down in excitement. I'm super chill, as you can tell.

Did I start crying over this exchange between Tally and Abigail? You bet I did.

And we also get a lot of great Raelle and Scylla moments, so excuse me while I freak out for the foreseeable future. I love them so much.

Also, hello Sheryl Lee Ralph as president Wade. I love you, and I'm sorry it took me this long to connect that THIS is why I recognized you on Abbott Elementary.

Basically, I couldn't be more ecstatic that Motherland: Fort Salem is coming back so soon. It's such an amazing female-driven series that I'm sad is ending, but I'm also excited to see more of these complex and strong characters.
