"As we wrap up Season Five on a high note, we are beginning to cook up some magic for next season that we know our fans will love."
The finale episode delivered a 3.0 Household rating, 3 million Total Viewers, 414,000 Women 25-54 and was the highest-rated and most-watched program of the day and second highest-rated program of the week, excluding news.
Cassie Nightingale (Catherine Bell), Middleton’s favorite enchantress, and her young-teenage daughter Grace (Bailee Madison), who shares that same special intuition as her mom, welcome Dr. Sam Radford (James Denton) and his son to town. When the New York transplants move in next to the Grey House, they are immediately spellbound by the mother-daughter duo next door, but Sam and Cassie quickly find they may not see eye to eye. With her signature charm, Cassie attempts to bring everyone together, ensuring all of Middleton is in for new changes, big surprises and, of course, a little bit of magic!
"Good Witch" returns for more magical adventures in Middleton when season five premieres with a special, two-night event Sunday, June 9 (8 p.m. ET/PT) and Monday, June 10 (8 p.m. ET/PT) on Hallmark Channel.
