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’s Magical Realism was at the center of this fantasy-drama. 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. It’s like Spider-Spidey Man’s Sense, but enchanted.
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. The only other powerful sorceresses in town are Endora and her seductive twin, 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. This, alas, never occurs. Even more aggravating is the fact that she has to explain the strange goings-on to her nosy next-door neighbor Gladys Kravits.
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. The reason her character on Wizards of Waverly Placeis so well-liked is due to this very fact.
Alex resembles Harry Potter in many ways. With his stealthy movements around the castle and other locations, the Hogwarts student has an admirable character. The same is true for Alex. Despite appearing self-centered, she has a strong sense of altruism. She returns to save her brother during the Wizard competition in the show’s finale, as evidenced by her appearance.
3. The Charmed Sisters Serve The Good To Help Others
Whether it’s the Charmed sisters from the original run in the early 2000s or the CW reboot, goodness oozes from them. 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. CharmedresemblesThe Good Witch in many ways. 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. When it comes to the Disney movie, Mary’s abilities are severely curtailed. She doesn’t use a wand or shout incantations at you. When she’s around, magical things just seem to happen.
This is the subject of Nanny and the Professor’s conversation, basically. 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. Phoebe, on the other hand, 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 tuned in to see it for the first time 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 is a show that can be seen on streaming services like Amazon and AMC+, despite the fact that it’s not as well-known as some of the others on this list. The fantasy series is based on Deborah Harkness’s All Souls Trilogy and centers on Diana Bishop. After finding a cursed manuscript in Oxford’s library, she unleashes her supernatural abilities to learn the manuscript’s secrets.
She meets new people along the way. Professor Matthew Clairmont, a vampire who teaches biochemistry at a prestigious university, is one of them. 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. Buffy the Vampire Slayer introduces us to a shy and nerdy young woman who grows up to be a formidable witch with incredible abilities. 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. However, she learns from her mistakes and strives to become the person she was meant to be.
8. The Magicians Features An Academy Of Adult Wizards & Witches
Hogwarts is a school for young witches and wizards in the Harry Potter series. The students in Syfy’s The Magicians are adults who have to learn how to control their abilities. It goes without saying that there are a lot of good witches out there.
Julia Wicker is one such person. She’s Quentin Coldwater’s childhood friend from the show. Her application to Brakebills University for Magical Pedagogy was turned down. But instead of doing that, Julia decides to join a coven where she will have to put together spells on her own. Alice Quinn, another good witch, comes to mind. Despite coming from a magical 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 doesn’t expect much from anyone, including herself. When Avengers: Endgame ends, she just wants to be with Vision again in Westview, New Jersey. Although her days resemble sitcom tropes from the 1950s to the 2000s, she has no explanation for this.
With WandaVision, it’s all about having fun and enjoying yourself. Wanda tries to maintain a sense of normalcy despite the fact that something is clearly going on. This is especially true after she gives birth to sons who are identical twins. Things don’t work out the way she planned in the end. She’s still optimistic, though, that she’ll be able to get her old life back.
