Variety reports exclusively that the series will receive a simulcast premiere on five networks: AMC, AMC+, BBC America, IFC, SundanceTV, and WE TV. It will also stream on Shudder, Sundance Now, Acorn, and ALLBLK on January 12.
Additionally, the network will dive deeper into the inspiration for the world of Mayfair Witches in All of Them Witches, a documentary exploring depictions of witches throughout history. The special will feature interviews from experts, including Pam Grossman, the author of Waking the Witch: Reflections on Women, Magic, and Power.
