Through the first seven episodes, season 2 of "Good Witch" is averaging a solid 2.3 HH rating and 2.5 million total viewers in L+3, making Hallmark Channel the #3 top rated cable network in the time period.

This is the second original series pick-up for Hallmark Channel in recent months, having also confirmed a fourth season for its frontier drama "When Calls the Heart."

The weekly series takes viewers on a magical journey with Cassie Nightingale (Bell) and her bright, teenage daughter Grace (Madison), who shares her mom's special intuitive charm. 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.

"Good Witch," is a Whizbang Films Production. Orly Adelson, Jonathan Eskenas, Frank Siracusa and Craig Pryce are the executive producers. Catherine Bell is co-executive producer. ITV Studios America controls distribution rights in the world for "Good Witch" outside of North America.
