“Good Witch” captivated audiences in its first season as the bewitching Cassie Nightingale (Bell), everyone’s favorite raven-haired enchantress, used her intuitive magical touch to keep viewers guessing. In her small town of Middleton, Cassie continues to conjure up her special brand of magic but even she can’t predict the excitement that will brew in her life with her enchanting daughter Grace (Madison) and handsome next-door neighbor, Dr. Sam Radford (Denton) by her side. One thing is certain: Cassie takes on all the fun and romance one day—or one spell—at a time. “Good Witch,” an Original Primetime Series, is based on Bell’s beloved character from one of Hallmark Channel’s longest-running and highest-rated original movie franchises of all-time.
