Freeform unveiled trailers for three of its upcoming shows during the network’s portion of the Disney upfront presentation on Tuesday.

In addition to a trailer for the upcoming “Party of Five” reboot, the cable network also debuted an extended look at the supernatural drama “Motherland: Fort Salem,” which takes place at an academy for witches training to be in the American military, and a trailer for the Josh Thomas-created comedy “Everything’s Gonna Be Okay.”

None of the three series have premiere dates, though they join a growing slate of Freeform originals, which includes the spinoffs “Good Trouble,” “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists” and the college-set “Grown-ish”; the mermaid drama “Siren,” which was renewed for a third season on Tuesday; “The Bold Type”; Marvel’s “Cloak & Dagger”; and the upcoming Kenya Barris comedy “Unrelated.”

Watch the new trailers below.

“Motherland: Fort Salem”

Set in an alternate America where witches ended their persecution over 300 years ago by cutting a deal with the government to fight for their country, “Motherland: Fort Salem” follows three young women from basic training in combat magic into early deployment. In this world, the traditional roles of gender and power are flipped, with the more dominant women on the front lines fighting looming terrorist threats that are familiar to our world–but with supernatural tactics and weapons.

The series stars Ashley Nicole Williams, Jessica Sutton, Taylor Hickson, Demetria McKinney and Amalia Holm.

“Motherland: Fort Salem” is executive produced by Eliot Laurence, Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Kevin Messick, Maria Maggenti and Steven Adelson.

“Party of Five”

A reboot of the 1994 Fox series, Freeform’s new take on “Party of Five” follows the five Acosta children as they navigate daily life struggles to survive as a family unit after their parents are suddenly deported back to Mexico.

The series stars Brandon Larracuente, Emily Tosta, Niko Guardado and Elle Paris Legaspi.

The new iteration of “Party of Five” hails from original series creators Chris Keyser and Amy Lippman, who also serve as executive producers and writers. Rodrigo Garcia also serves as executive producer and directed the pilot. Michal Zebede serves as co-executive producer and writer.

“Everything’s Gonna Be Okay”

From “Please Like Me” creator, writer and star Josh Thomas, the half-hour comedy “Everything’s Gonna Be Okay” centers on Nicholas (Thomas), a neurotic 25-year-old visiting his single dad and two teenage half-sisters, one of whom is on the autism spectrum. He hasn’t been particularly present in his siblings’ lives, but when their dad reveals that he is terminally ill, the girls have to cope with not only a devastating loss but also the realization that Nicholas is the one who will have to rise to the occasion, move in and hold it all together.

In addition to Thomas, Kayla Cromer, Maeve Press and Adam Faison also star.

Thomas is showrunner on the series, which is executive produced by Stephanie Swedlove and Kevin Whyte, as well as David Martin, Jon Thoday and Richard Allen-Turner of Avalon Television.
