Three weeks into its fifth-season run, Hallmark Channel has renewed
top-rated series Good Witch, starring Catherine Bell, for a sixth
season. Season 6 of the supernatural comedy-drama will be without Bailee
Madison, who will be exiting after starring as Grace Russell since the
series’ 2015 launch.
“Once again, being the No. 1 series in cable, we are thrilled to
announce a Season 6 pickup of Good Witch,” Michelle Vicary, EVP
Programming & Publicity at Crown Media Family Networks, said in a
statement to Deadline. “Bailee Madison will always be a beloved member
of the Hallmark family.”
Based on Hallmark’s successful movie franchise that marks its 11th
anniversary this year, Good Witch is one of two popular, long-running
scripted series on Hallmark Channel, along with flagship When Calls the
Heart. With the latter recently wrapping its latest season, Good Witch
is taking on the mantle of ad-supported cable’s No. 1 scripted series
currently on the air in total viewers and women 25-54.
Good Witch, which also stars James Denton, has followed newly widowed
Cassie Nightingale (Bell), the good-natured enchantress of the fictional
town of Middleton, and her now-teenage daughter Grace (Madison), who
shares her mother’s unique gifts of insight and intuition. Grace is set
to graduate from high school in 2019, allowing for a natural wrap of her
storyline as a regular character on the show.
Co-starring on Good Witch are Rhys Matthew Bond, Sarah Power, Catherine
Disher, Kylee Evans, Peter MacNeill and Dan Jeannotte. The series is a
Whizbang Films production in association with ITV Studios America.
Executive producers are Darin Goldberg, Orly Adelson, Jonathan Eskenas,
Frank Siracusa and Craig Pryce. Bell is co-executive producer and Janina
Barrett serves as supervising producer. Colin Brunton is producer. Good
Witch is distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
