‘Good Witch’ Fans Are Begging Hallmark to Renew the Show for Season 7
[This article contains spoilers for the Good Witch Season 6 finale.]
It’s all over for Good Witch — for now, at least. Season 6 of the Hallmark Channel drama came to an end on July 5, with a finale that saw the centuries-long Merriwick curse finally put to rest. After the enchanted ruby, emerald, and diamond were brought together in the antique Middleton music box, the curse was broken and Donovan (Marc Bendavid) was able to propose to Abigail (Sarah Power).
But is there another mystery brewing in Middleton? At the end of the episode, Cassie (Catherine Bell) finds a small purple bag filled with dirt on the counter at her store, Bell, Book, and Candle. Abigail discovered a similar bag in her home, as did Joy (Katherine Barrell). Even the normally intuitive Cassie is baffled about where the bags came from and what they could mean.
Will there be a ‘Good Witch’ Season 7?
The last episode of Good Witch season 6 certainly ended on a cliffhanger. It seems the show’s writers are setting up a new mystery to unravel. But so far, there’s been no official word from Hallmark Channel about whether the show has been renewed for a seventh season.
However, Good Witch is one of Hallmark’s most popular original series. The show averaged 1.9 million viewers per episode in season 6, according to TV Series Finale. That’s down a bit from season 5, when an average of 2.2 million people watched each episode.
Catherine Bell says a ‘Good Witch’ Halloween special is in the works
While fans are still waiting for news about a new season of Good Witch, it does sound like a Halloween special is on the horizon. In an interview with Media Village, Bell said the plan was to get to work on that in later in the summer, provided it was safe to do so.
“We’re set to start shooting in August,” she said. “Those first two episodes air as the movie, hopefully we’ll all be back at work soon. They’re currently writing it, so hopefully, we’ll be back in Toronto then — fingers crossed!”
Fans are asking Hallmark to renew their favorite show
With no word yet on season 7, Good Witch fans are taking to social media to ask the network for a renewal.
“That cliffhanger though. We need Season 7 STAT!” one person commented.
“Thanks Hallmark, loved this season. One of the best,” another wrote. “Hope there is a renewal announcement soon.”
Other fans declared Good Witch their “favorite show” and lamented that season 6 went by so fast. Many said they were impatient to get back to Middleton and find out what’s next for Cassie and the rest of the show’s characters. In the meantime, they can relive some of their favorite Good Witch moments by streaming seasons 1-5 on Netflix, or catching up on season 6 on Amazon Prime.
