Sam (Denton), a doctor, and his teenage son live next door, and are charmed by the "magical" mother-daughter duo and wonder is it really magic, a lucky coincidence or just a special intuitive insight only this family possesses? Based on one of the network's most successful original movie franchises of all time, "Good Witch" inspires with each intriguing episode set in the quaint fictional town of Middleton.
