Five Things You Didn’t Know About Hallmark’s Good Witch

Good Witch is an American/Canadian TV show that combines elements of comedy, drama, and fantasy to create something interesting. It is centered around Cassie Nightingale, the titular Good Witch, who is raising her teenage daughter on her own after the recent passing of her husband. However, as she interacts with other characters on the TV show, she begins to recover from the loss of her husband as new possibilities unfold in front of her.

Here are five things that you may or may not have known about Good Witch:

Airs on Hallmark

As strange as it sounds, Good Witch airs on the Hallmark Channel, which is owned by Hallmark Cards through Crown Media Holdings. In brief, the channel consists of a mix of both original and acquired mini-series and made-for-TV movies as well as lifestyle programs. All of which are aimed at families, who make up the Hallmark Channel’s intended audience.

Continuation of Made-for-TV Movie Series

As a result, it should come as no surprise to learn that Good Witch is a continuation of a series of seven made-for-TV movies of the same name, which were released from 2008 and 2014. The movies focused on Nightingale’s marriage with the police chief as well as her gradual transformation from a newcomer to a pillar of her community. Unfortunately, the actor who played Nightingale’s husband was not available for the shooting of the TV series, which is why it is set an indeterminate number of years after his character’s passing.

Completes the Circle

In a way, Good Witch can be considered a completion of the circle. After all, Nightingale started out as a newcomer to Middleton, who received assistance from others to help her fit in. Now, she is the established pillar of the community, who is helping someone else fit in. Better still, there is a romantic element in both cases, thus further strengthening their similarities with one another.

More People Showing Up from the Past

With that said, it is important to note that Good Witch retains a fair number of the conventions that helped make the made-for-TV movies popular with viewers. For example, interested individuals can continue to expect new and exciting characters from Nightingale’s past to make their way into the franchise, thus stirring up the storylines while also shedding light on her still mysterious past.

A Gentle Sort of Magic

Finally, one of the things that sets Good Witch apart from other TV shows with fantastical elements is the gentle sort of magic that permeates the franchise. Unlike a lot of her flashier counterparts, Nightingale is subtle, so much so that viewers can ask legitimate questions about whether she is genuinely magical or just someone with a great deal of intuition as well as an excellent understanding of other people that enables her to navigate difficult situations with an ease that borders on the magical. As a result, watching Good Witch can make for a very different experience, which is why interested individuals should give it a try before making a final decision about whether to continue with it or not.
