Catherine Bell ("Army Wives") is back as everyone's favorite "Good Witch" Cassie Nightingale, in a magical story about love, forgiveness and renewal as production begins on "The Good Witch's Wonder," the seventh installment of Hallmark Channel's highest-rated and longest-running original movie series, premiering on Hallmark Channel in October 2014. "The Good Witch's Wonder" also stars Chris Potter ("Heartland"), Catherine Disher ("The Border"), Matthew Knight ("My Babysitter's a Vampire"), Hannah Endicott-Douglas ("Casino Jack"), Ashley Leggat ("Criminal Minds"), Peter MacNeill ("Call Me Fritz") and Rachel Wilson ("And Now a Word From Our Sponsor").
Cassie Nightingale (Bell) finds herself with only days to plan her stepson Brandon's (Knight) wedding to Tara (Leggat) when the happy couple unexpectedly pushes up the date for their big day. Meanwhile, Martha (Disher), the newly elected mayor of Middleton has roped her into chairing the silent auction to raise much-needed funds for her pet project, the Middleton Botanical Gardens. Audrey (Wilson), a new arrival in town, pops in to Cassie's store Bell, Book & Candle and the two instantly bond. Needing help in the store, Cassie immediately hires Audrey as her new store associate and she even pitches in and helps Cassie organize the auction. But, Audrey is hiding a secret past and suspicions start to swirl around her when the donated auction items are missing. With the use of her "special" powers - as well as some teamwork by the Mayor and Jake (Potter), her husband and local Chief of Police - Cassie hopes to conjure up the truth before it's too late.
