Plot Synopsis

Based on Hallmark Channel's Original Movie franchise, GOOD WITCH the series takes viewers on a new magical journey with Cassie Nightingale and her bright, young teenage daughter Grace, who shares her mom's special intuitive charm. Shortly after the tragic death of her husband, Chief of Police Jake Russell, a doctor, Sam, and his teenage son, Nick, move in next door to Grey House in the quaint town of Middleton. Sam is having trouble acclimating to the small-town way of life, especially after encountering the scoffing eye of Middleton's mayor, Martha. In her magical way, Cassie attempts to help him settle in, but when he finds out the residents of Middleton have forgone doctor's visits in favor of Cassie's peculiar brand of elixir and herbs, Sam clashes with Cassie. At school, Nick, a misunderstood teen, is already trying to make his dad ship him back to the city -- by causing trouble. But when Grace gets entangled in one of Nick's rule-breaking schemes, she has to decide if she'll take the fall for his offense. Meanwhile, Cassie welcomes her stepchildren, Lori and Brandon, home, but when Brandon gather the courage to tell his family about a meaningful change in his future, he upsets the who family just as Middleton prepares a special memorial to honor Jake. While Cassie uses her special charm to conjure up a plan to end her stubborn stalemate with Sam, Lori unexpectedly intervenes to save Brandon's new job.

The sophomore season premiered Sunday, April 17, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT on Hallmark Channel. This season, Cassie and Sam's friendship continues while romance is put 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 wants nothing to do with her magic as she struggles with feeling different from her peers, which weighs heavily on Cassie. She guides her daughter through this rough time and encourages Grace to embrace her gifts. But Grace isn't the only one benefitting from Cassie's guidance, as she touches the lives of people she encounters through Grey House and Bell, Book and Candle who are in need of a little "magic" in their lives, whether they realize it or not. 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 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 special brand of magic in her own special way that leaves a lasting effect on those around her.

Season 3 of GOOD WITCH premiered Sunday, April 30, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT on Hallmark Channel. In the third season, Cassie and Sam are officially a couple and will navigate the sometimes-choppy waters that come with their new relationship status, including dealing with the reactions of their kids, Grace and Nick. Grace moves further into the high school years and still pushes herself to excel in school while outside the classroom, learns more about her special, intuitive abilities and also feels the first blush of teen romance. Sam works to strike a balance between his duties at the hospital and private practice as well as his responsibilities as a father to Nick and, now, a romantic partner to Cassie. As always, Martha, the indefatigable Mayor of Middleton, is working hard to put her beloved hometown on the map and bring it the attention she feels it deserves. In the season opener, "A Budding Romance," Cassie, along with the residents of Middleton, wait with anticipation as the rare plant, the Middleton Merriwick, readies to bloom again for the first time in decades, promising the most magical year of all. Martha devises a strategy to let the world know Middleton houses the one-of-a-kind Merriwick, escorting a curious botanist from the University to the botanical gardens to study its wonder. When Grace learns secondhand that Sam and Cassie are officially together, causing Grace to feel hurt that her mother didn't tell her first. A cryptic text from Nick leads Grace to think he plans to ask her out, but she worries that this could complicate their friendship. Later in the botanical gardens, it is discovered someone cut a stalk off the Merriwick and as it declines, it appears the plant is not alone in being affected.

The fourth season of GOOD WITCH premiered on Sunday, April 29, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT on Hallmark Channel. In the season opener, "With This Ring," Sam, now engaged to the enchantress Cassie, visits the local jewelry store with Abigail to find the perfect engagement ring. He stumbles across a most unique vintage -- and unbeknownst to Sam -- Merriwick family heirloom gimmel ring, albeit with a missing piece. Sam is heartbroken when the owner tells him the partial ring is not for sale. Abigail uses her spellbinding charm to conjure up a plan to reconnect the past with the present with a truly selfless act, surprising even herself, and Sam as well. Nick and Grace are still angry with each other and not speaking, so Sam and Cassie to delay sharing their nuptials news with them. But after figuring out their big secret, Nick and Grace decide to feign a truce only for the greater good of their parents, but each wonders just how long they can keep up the charade. Meanwhile, Martha's attempt to boost tourism sends her on a quest to find "the most romantic spot" in Middleton. An old wedding album she finds at Bell Book & Candle acts as an ancient map of sorts. With Abigail's help, Martha's journey around town leads her to not only discover that "romance is everywhere you look," but also to the exact place where more Merriwick women got engaged, which is not at all what she expected to find.

On Sunday, June 9, 2019 at 8pm ET/PT, Hallmark Channel premiered Season 5 of GOOD WITCH. In the fifth season, love is in the air with Cassie and Sam's much-anticipated wedding, bringing their two families together under one roof to face new challenges as a blended family. Grace and Nickare 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. In the season opener, "The Forever Tree (Part 1)," as Middleton's resident enchantress Cassie works on last-minute wedding preparations, Sam looks for the tree that her ancestor was married under as a wedding surprise. Though skeptical of Cassie's world-traveling foster brother Vincent, Sam invites him to be part of the search. Grace becomes troubled when little hiccups keep popping up in wedding planning, and Nick finds sudden inspiration to focus on his future when he meets a new girl. Abigail opens up to the idea of handing her responsibilities as mayor over to Martha, but a handsome stranger puts a wrench in her plans. Meanwhile, Stephanie finds herself smitten by a hospital chaplain. The two-night premiere continued with "The Forever Tree (Part 2)" on Monday, June 10 at 8pm.

On Saturday, October 19, 2019 from 8-10pm ET/PT, Hallmark Channel premieres "Curse from a Rose," a two-hour GOOD WITCH Halloween event. Cassie and rest of Middleton prepare for the most magical time of year: Halloween! Martha plans an 1890s-themed bonfire while Sam plots out romantic plans for Cassie. His first plan, a sailing adventure, fails due to a leaky boat. Cassie gets a surprise visitor from her college roommate, Autumn (Lolita Davidovich), who stays at Grey House and agrees to help Martha with the bonfire. However, her lack of enthusiasm and biting comments toward Cassie indicate some stewing resentment.

Stephanie and Adam enlist Middleton's residents to help break a pumpkin carving record -- one currently held by rival town Blairsville. Middleton's other blossoming couple, Abigail and Donovan, works through conflicting Halloween plans. At Grey House, Sam's second surprise for Cassie -- a romantic dinner -- is first interrupted by Nick's return, and next by a pipe leak. Later, a mysterious four-leaf clover charm arrives. An inspection reveals it was mailed in 1974, and Sam sets out to find the intended recipient. Meanwhile, George hunts for Middleton's fabled sea monster, Bessie, pulling Nick in with his passion for the legend.

After Autumn sneaks into Abigail's flower shop, all the roses for the bonfire die. Pressing forward with planning, Martha taps Sam to compete in a Halloween triathlon against Donovan, leading to a side bet between Abigail and Donovan in which the winner determines their Halloween plans. Along with prepping for the bonfire, Martha unsuccessfully attempts to surprise her husband Tom, noticing that the typically romantic Tom has planned nothing to mark the anniversary of their engagement.

Autumn reveals the reason she's harboring bad feelings toward Cassie and ultimately resigns from helping with the bonfire. Meanwhile, Sam and Donovan tie in the first two events of the Halloween triathlon, leaving the final obstacle course as a tiebreaker. On the cusp of winning, Sam instead decides to help an injured Donovan across the finish line, resulting in a tie, and some ambiguity over Abigail and Donovan's side bet. Meanwhile, Nick makes a touching gesture toward George, who appreciates his efforts.

Although the town is in good spirits, there are still problems to be solved before the Halloween bonfire, including a pumpkin shortage, wet firewood and missing costumes. After conjuring a positive memory from college that changes her perspective, Autumn redoubles her bonfire planning efforts and feels empowered to control her own destiny. As Halloween approaches, Autumn and Cassie work to make the bonfire a success, Sam continues his investigation into the four-leafed clover mystery and romantic surprises await Cassie, Abigail and Martha.

Three months earlier -- on Wednesday, July 3 -- Hallmark Channel renewed GOOD WITCH for a sixth season.
