The Good Witch, a Christmas movie from Hallmark, ended in 2021. Fortunately, fans will have plenty of other magical shows to look forward to.
It was a ratings hit for Hallmark from 2015 to 2021 with The Good Witch. Cast members included Catherine Bell, James Denton, and Bailee Madison from JAG. Catherine’s Cassie and her daughter Grace were endowed with magical intuition rather than the ability to cast spells in a cauldron with a horde of witches. This would be Spider-Spidey Man’s Sense in a magical form.
It’s been seven seasons since The Good Witch made her final appearance, and her absence has left a hole in the world of mystical shenanigans. Fortunately, there are still Hallmark shows available on all viewing platforms, so fans will not be disappointed.
1. Bewitched Is The Baseline For Good Magic
Samantha Stevens is the best in the world at good magic. When it comes to her whiny husband (in the first incarnation at least), aggressive mother, and various relatives, she is the picture of patience. Samantha is one of the most powerful sorceresses in the world, barring her sultry twin cousin, Endora.
Sam doesn’t flaunt her extraordinary abilities in the 1960s classicBewitched. She’d prefer to lead a normal life, much like Cassie did in The Good Witch. Weirdly enough, this never occurs. That she has to explain her strange behavior to her nosy next-door neighbor, Gladys Kravits, only makes things worse.
2. The Wizards Of Waverly Place Features A Teenage Witch That Has Good Intentions
One of the Russo family’s three wizards, Alex, isn’t evil. Actually, when pressure mounts, she does the right thing and corrects a spell she cast. Why her character is so well-known on Wizards of Waverly Place.
Alex is the Russo equivalent of Harry Potter. Despite the fact that the Hogwarts student moves about the castle in a stealthy manner, he has a good heart. Alex is the same way. Despite the fact that she comes across as selfish, she actually has a strong sense of altruism. For example, she returns to save her brother during the Wizard competition in the series finale to demonstrate this.
3. The Charmed Sisters Serve The Good To Help Others
All three Charmed sisters, old and new, have goodness oozing out of them in every incarnation. In other words, they’ve transformed demonic forces like warlocks and demons into…potential love interests. Their “Power of Three” has everything to do with it.
The sisters attempt to lead a normal life, just like in other shows. When evil does appear, they are tasked with battling it as Earth’s most powerful good witches. Overall, there are many aspects of Chamed that remind me of The Good Witch. This includes the importance of family and how it strengthens the bonds between the sisters both metaphorically and literally.
4. Nanny & The Professor Features Implied Magic
Rather than Bewitched, the inspiration forNanny and the Professor came from Disney’sMary Poppins. Mary’s abilities are severely curtailed in the animated feature film. She doesn’t use incantations or wave a wand around. When she’s around, magical things just seem to happen.
AboutNanny and the Professor, that’s all. Phoebe, played by Juliet Mills, looks after a single family of four. The tinkling bells that signal her magical intuition are reminiscent of Cassie from The Good Witch. While Phoebe lacks the ability to communicate with humans, she appears to be able to communicate with animals.
5. Sabrina The Teenage Witch Is About A Good Teenage Magician
Having your show on ABC’s hugely popular T.G.I.F. lineup has its perks. A huge hit is guaranteed if it’s Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. In fact, 17 million people watched the show’s premiere in 1996.
Its success can’t be attributed solely to the concept. Melissa Joan Hart, formerly of Nickelodeon’sClarissa Explains It All, found a new home there. There’s no better way to learn about a good witch than to watch the fun show Sabrina, which stars Caroline Rhea and Martin Mull among its colorful cast of characters.
6. In A Discovery Of Witches, The Main Character Rediscovers Her Magic
A Discovery of Witches, while not as well-known as some of the other shows on this list, is available on streaming services like Amazon and AMC+. The fantasy series is based on Deborah Harkness’s All Souls Trilogy and centers on Diana Bishop. It takes all of her supernatural abilities to decipher a cursed manuscript she finds in Oxford’s library.
She meets new people along the way. In addition to being a biochemistry professor, Matthew Clairmont is also a vampire. They join forces to keep the book safe while also battling creatures from the other realms.
7. Buffy The Vampire Slayer Featured A Pair Of Good Witches
It’s safe to say that Willow Rosenberg is an honorable wizard. At the beginning of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, she is a nerdy and shy person who develops into a powerful witch with amazing powers. Buffy and the Scooby Gang use her help to defeat the goddess Glory.
Willow, like many other good witches, becomes addicted to her magic. Then Tara, her witchy girlfriend, is assassinated. Willow is enraged and uses every bit of dark magic at her disposal to take out her assassin. On the other hand, she learns from her mistakes and does her best to revert back to her original form.
8. The Magicians Features An Academy Of Adult Wizards & Witches
Hogwarts is a school for young witches and wizards in the Harry Potter series. Adults learn how to use their magical abilities in Syfy’s The Magicians. It goes without saying that there are a lot of good witches out there.
Julia Wicker is one such person. She was Quentin Coldwater’s best friend since they were kids. Brakebills University for Magical Pedagogy, on the other hand, will not accept her for admission. Instead, she joins a coven where she learns how to cast spells one piece at a time. Alice Quinn, another good witch, comes to mind. Despite being descended from a magician family, she was neglected as a child.
9. Motherland: Fort Salem Is About Witches That Fight Terrorists
In Motherland, a fort named Salemis is located in a parallel universe. a period in which witches were not publicly burned like they were in Salem Instead, the Salem Accords, which date all the way back to 1620, set them free. As a result, women now hold the reins of power around the globe.
Additionally, witches are enlisted in the United States Army to fight a terrorist organization known as The Spree. Raelle Collar, a promising young witch, and Tally Craven, a zealous young witch who defies her mother’s wishes to join the army, are leading the charge against them.
10. WandaVision Features A Witch That Wants To Live A Good Life
Wanda Maximoff has modest expectations. When Avengers: Endgame concludes, she just wants to be with Vision in Westview, New Jersey. Although her days resemble sitcom tropes from the 1950s to the 2000s, it is unclear why this is the case.
The idea behind WandaVision is to enjoy one’s life to the fullest. Wanda tries to maintain a sense of normalcy despite the fact that something is clearly going on. Especially after she gives birth to sons who are identical twins to her own. Things don’t work out the way she planned in the end. She still has hope, though, that her happy life will be restored.
