Salem's Press Release info. for Season 2:
Mary must also contend with threats emerging from within her own coven, including her mysterious servant Tituba (Ashley Madekwe), whose allegiances are slippery and motives unclear; as well as the arrival of a new visitor who may pose a threat to her uncontested control over the town — Dr. Samuel Wainwright (Stuart Townsend), an educated man of science who seeks to uncover the secrets of Salem and the plague that claimed Isaac Walton (Iddo Goldberg, “Mob City”) as its first victim. As rivals circle her throne, Mary’s most vital task is shoring up support from Anne Hale (Tamzin Merchant), whose newly discovered identity as a cradle witch can render her either a powerful ally or a deadly foe.In the UK, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the first film this year to achieve three weeks at No.1!

It's True: Downton Abbey's Sixth Season Will Be Its Last (via TVLine)
Multiple sources confirm to TVLine that Downton‘s upcoming sixth season will indeed be its last.
The decision to end Downton was mostly a practical one — the cast’s contracts expire at the end of Season 6 and, with one or two possible exceptions, the actors are ready to move on.
“You can keep the show going without Matthew and Sybill, but you can’t continue it without the entire Crawley family,” an insider notes.
Setting an end date now allows Downton creator Juliian Fellowes to send the series out on a satisfying note, before turning his attention to his long-gestating NBC drama The Gilded Age.
Earlier this month, the Dowager Countess herself, Maggie Smith, acknowledged that the end was near. “I can’t see how it could go on,” she told the Sunday Times. “I mean, I certainly can’t keep going. To my knowledge, I must be 110 by now. We’re into the late 1920s.”
