A Good Witch movie might be in the works. The star of the hit Hallmark franchise, Catherine Bell, told fans in a message on the Cameo app that she hopes to do one more film in the series.
“Hopefully we’ll get a movie done here one of these days and bring all those characters back,” Bell said in her message to two fans who recently got married. “That is the hope we are working on but we’ll see if it actually happens but working on it.”
Good Witch movie
The franchise got its start with the 2008 film The Good Witch. Bell starred in the movie as a mysterious woman named Cassie Nightingale who moved to the small town of Middleton. Though the locals were wary of her at first, she eventually wins them over with her kindness and good advice.
Hallmark went on to make a series of movies featuring the characters and in 2015, it debuted a TV series about Cassie Nightingale and her family. The show ran for seven seasons on Hallmark. The network shocked fans when it announced in July 2021 that the show was being canceled.
“Good Witch has enchanted viewers for over a decade,” said Randy Pope, Hallmark’s senior vice president of programming and development. “We…extend our gratitude and thanks to the entire cast and crew for their dedication and hard work.”
Fans mounted a worldwide campaign to get the show back on the air, appealing to Hallmark, Netflix, and Great American Family, a new network founded by former Hallmark CEO Bill Abbott.
After a year of campaigning, fans thought they had made progress when a Hallmark exec hinted at a return of the franchise.
During an appearance at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour, Lisa Hamilton-Daly, executive vice president of programming at Hallmark Media, told reporters the network was considering what to do with several of its franchises.
“As far as Good Witch, I think we’re always interested in thinking about what we can do with our most popular IP,” Hamilton-Daly said.
Bell’s recent Cameo message has fans hopeful that they might see their favorite cast again.
In the video, which Bell recorded for two fans who recently got married, the actress said she always aspires to be like Good Witch’s Cassie.
“I’m always inspired by her and I always try to be more like her,” Bell said.
