Chris Potter, Robin Dunne and Catherine Disher Co-Star in the Sixth Installment of Hallmark Channel's Highest-Rated Original Movie Series
There's birthday magic in the air-or is it a birthday curse? The alluring Catherine Bell ("Army Wives") returns for a spell, to reprise her role as raven-haired enchantress Cassie Nightingale in the World Premiere of "The Good Witch's Destiny," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie, Saturday, October 26 (9p.m. ET/PT, 8C). The sixth installment of Hallmark Channel's highest-rated and longest-running original movie series, "The Good Witch's Destiny," also stars Chris Potter ("Heartland"), Robin Dunne ("Sanctuary"), Catherine Disher ("The Border"), Matthew Knight ("My Babysitter's a Vampire"), Hannah Endicott-Douglas ("Casino Jack") and Peter MacNeill ("Call Me Fritz").
All Cassie Nightingale (Bell) wants for her birthday is for her family and friends to be together. While her husband Jake (Potter) suggests an intimate dinner at a fancy restaurant in their hometown of Middleton, Cassie would rather have a party at The Grey House, with all her loved ones in attendance. And since Jake's kids, Brandon (Knight) and Lori (Endicott-Douglas), are growing up with lives of their own, it might be their last chance to unite as a family for a long time. Meanwhile, Grandpa George's (MacNeill) new wife Gwen (Libby Lennie, "The Good Witch's Charm") discovers that her prodigal son Drew (Dunne) has returned to Middleton after a five-year absence with plans to get married. When a business deal turns bad, however, it jeopardizes Drew's impending nuptials and sets him on edge. It's just one in a series of unfortunate events that, one way or another, traces back to Cassie and her store, Bell, Book & Candle. As Cassie's special day is fast approaches, Lori discovers disturbing parallels between Cassie and Cassie's great aunt, nicknamed the Grey Lady, who disappeared at her own birthday party years before. With signs of a curse looming over her, it's clear that Cassie needs to conjure up more than a little magic to make things right again.
