Season Two Premieres Sunday, April 17 on Hallmark Channel
After spellbinding audiences with seven installments of one of the network’s most successful movie franchise of all-time featuring Cassie Nightingale, the beloved raven-haired enchantress brought to life by Catherine Bell (“Army Wives,” “JAG”, “Bruce Almighty”), “Good Witch” debuted as an original series last year on Hallmark Channel. In its first season “Good Witch” became the network’s strongest series, averaging an impressive 2.6 L+3 HH rating, making Hallmark Channel the #2 rated cable network in the time period and reached 11.7 million unduplicated viewers.
In season two, Cassie (Bell) and Sam (Golden Globe® winner James Denton, “Desperate Housewives”) put romance on the back burner as Sam resolves his family situation and Cassie decides if she’s ready to take things to the next level. A complication arises with the arrival in Middleton of John (Dan Payne), an old archaeologist friend of Cassie’s, who is clearly interested in more than just friendship. Meanwhile, Grace (Bailee Madison, “Northpole: Open for Christmas,” “The Fosters,” “Just Go with It”) wants nothing to do with her magic as she struggles with feeling different from her peers. Cassie guides her daughter through this rough time and encourages Grace to embrace her gifts. When Sam’s not busy navigating the convoluted family life created by his pushy ex-wife, the swoon-inducing doctor has his hands full with his burgeoning medical practice and over-sharing front office assistant Eve. Meanwhile, Middleton’s indefatigable mayor Martha (Catherine Disher) is still working hard to keep the town humming in true Martha style. But as always, Cassie is at the heart of everything and manages to weave her magic in her own special way, leaving a lasting effect on those around her.
