After eight original TV movies and seven seasons Hallmark Channel’s “The Good Witch” will conclude its run on the network. The announcement came Friday via Randy Pope, SVP, programming & development.
“We thank our leads whose chemistry and talent made ‘Good Witch’ such a beloved and uniquely special viewing experience: Catherine Bell, who has brought the inimitable Cassie Nightingale to life for 13 years, and James Denton, who as Dr. Sam Radford has added so much charm and humor to the series. We also extend our gratitude and thanks to the entire cast and crew for their dedication and hard work.”
Scheduled to wrap things up with its series finale airing Sunday, July 25 episode, the Merriwick cousins get ready to face the mysterious force putting their family legacy at risk while changes are in store for others.
“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened!” said Bell, quoting Dr. Seuss on Instagram following the news of the show’s cancellation. “I am so grateful for 7 seasons… and 13 years (of movies) of being a part of Good Witch, working with the KINDEST and most talented, cast & crew, producers, network! It has always felt like family.”
