Hallmark renews “Good Witch” for Season 6!

In a Deadline Exclusive, Deadline.com posted about Good Witch being renewed for Season 6 and they also announced that Bailee Madison who has played Grace Russell for the last four years and past five seasons is leaving the show after season five ends.

Here’s the article posted from Deadline, in which you can also view on DEADLINE.COM:

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.

The Hallmark Channel has finally released the premiere date for the brand new season of Good Witch! Hallmark has announced that the long-awaited season five will premiere on May 5th, 2019 at 8PM on the Hallmark Channel.

Below are all the details released with the Press Release:

PASADENA, CA – February 9, 2019 – “Good Witch” returns for more magical adventures in the bucolic burb of Middleton when season five premieres Sunday, May 5 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel. Based on the “The Good Witch” movie franchise that is the most successful in the network’s history, the series stars Catherine Bell (“Army Wives,” “JAG”), Bailee Madison (Just Go with It, “Trophy Wife”) and James Denton (“Desperate Housewives,” “Devious Maids”). Since the first movie 11 years ago, Cassie Nightingale has become a character that Hallmark Channel viewers have fallen in love with and look forward to welcoming into their homes. The announcement was made today as part of Crown Media Family Networks’ bi-annual Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour.

“The longevity of ‘Good Witch’ is a testament to the performances of Catherine Bell and
the rest of the remarkable cast, who have brought to life characters our viewers look forward to spending time with,” said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Network Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. “There are exciting changes in store this season as our characters’ lives evolve and we can’t wait for fans to go on the journey with them.”

Love is in the air when season five begins with Cassie (Bell) and Sam’s (Denton) muchanticipated wedding, bringing their two families together under one roof to face new challenges as a blended family. Grace (Madison) and Nick (Rhys Matthew Bond) are in their senior year of high school, which isn’t without some bumps in the road as they deal with the uncertainty of life after graduation. Abigail (Sarah Power), Middleton’s new mayor, plays political hardball with her charismatic Blairsville counterpart (Mark Bendavid). Their attraction is undeniable but an ancient curse threatens their budding romance. Stephanie (Kylee Evans) invests in a food truck to expand her business and, in the process, finds herself in a love triangle with the charming, new hospital chaplain (Scott Cavalheiro) and Cassie’s adventurous foster brother (Gianpaolo Venuta). Meanwhile, with Martha (Catherine Disher) unseated as mayor due to a property line snafu, she’s drawn to a new career that’s right up her alley: hosting a local TV talk show.

When the chance discovery of the town’s original charter reveals a centuries-old map, the hunt for a fabled, long-lost treasure ensues. If found, it could have momentous implications for the future of this not-so-quiet little town.

“Good Witch,” is a Whizbang Films Production in association with ITV Studios America. Darin Goldberg, Orly Adelson, Jonathan Eskenas, Frank Siracusa and Craig Pryce are the executive producers. Catherine Bell is co-executive producer. Janina Barrett serves as supervising producer. Colin Brunton is producer. “Good Witch” is distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.

Heartland Coverage

Near the end of 2017 and early 2018, Rhys appeared on Heartland as Dylan Westfield and became close to Georgie. Although, Dylan has beaten her in friendly competition where he placed first, he still supported her in the Canada West Competition where she placed first as he was sidelined with an ankle injury.

We have added all the Production Stills of Rhys during his tenure in Heartland as well as screencaptures in the best quality we could find of each episode that he appeared in to complete that project. We will turn our focus to Good Witch screencaptures and Ties That Bind screencaptures next.
