Here’s a synopsis: It’s been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century sisters who were executed for practicing witchcraft, and they are looking for revenge. Now it is up to three high-school students to figure out how to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before midnight on All Hallow’s Eve.

Whitney will be playing Becca, Lilia as Cassie and Belissa Escobedo will portray Izzy, three young women in present-day Salem who incite the wrath of the three witches.

Doug Jones will also be returning in his role of Billy Butcherson.

Also joining the cast are Sam Richardson, Hannah Waddingham, Tony Hale, Juju Brenner, Taylor Paige Henderson and Nina Kitchen.
