While the spooky season is officially over and the holidays are near, AMC is releasing a new series that might have you hankering for October. Sanctuary: A Witch’s Tale is a new series adapted from the novel by V.V. James. It is coming to Sundance Now and AMC Plus in 2024, and the trailer plus first look photos have already been released.
An official synopsis of the show reads, “Sanctuary: A Witch’s Tale is set in a contemporary world where witchcraft is real. It takes place in the idyllic English town of Sanctuary, where witches have lived peacefully as valued members of society for hundreds of years. Until now… At the heart of the story is Sarah Fenn (Elaine Cassidy), Sanctuary’s resident witch, on whom the town relies to solve their problems when conventional remedies have failed. When local teen rugby star Dan Whithall dies tragically in an apparent accident, his death exposes a terrifying undercurrent of suspicion and fear toward Sarah and her teenage daughter, Harper (Hazel Doupe). Mother of the dead boy, Abigail (Amy de Bhrun), once Sarah’s closest friend, is wracked with grief, and to avenge her son’s death, launches a modern-day witch-hunt to get ‘justice,’ no matter what the cost.”
