This was initially destined for FX. When AHS: Coven (also about witches) was greenlit, they passed it along to WGN. Their first scripted series.

Will this be watchable on the actual WGN (Channel 9 in Chicago) which is a CW affiliate?

You're thinking is a few years in the past. The Superstation era is long gone. TBS branched away from it in 2007, with the original WTBS station in Atlanta becoming WPCH, and TBS developing the Very Funny tagline and dropping Braves coverage in favor of a national MLB package.

WGN America is not the same as WGN-TV anymore. They share some programming, like the WGN News and sports, but they are moving further away from eachother. My guess is that this show will only be on WGN America, as WGN-TV is a CW affiliate.

If any of you even watched the trailer, it clearly says "WGN America"

So the entire Chicago market gets left out?

I wasn't aware that Chicago still doesn't have the America feed on cable. I guess since the show is going to be on Sundays that it could be on WGN-TV as well. It wouldn't be a conflict with the CW, so the only question is if the deal allows them to put it on an OTA station.

That would push it into Canada as well, as most systems up there have the Chicago feed as opposed to the America feed.
