[adrotate banner=”7″]The Good Witch’s Wonder is the seventh film in the Good Witch series, which is an amazing run for a made-for-tv movie series. In fact, the Good Witch movies are so popular they’ve announced a tv series for her that will start airing in 2015! Even better, I’ve seen some of the adventures of Cassie Nightingale, and these films are generally pretty good (disclaimer: I’ve not seen the more recent ones!), and this entry has most of the same creative team and stars, so it should fit right in with the rest.
Cassie Nightingale (Catherine Bell) finds herself with only days to plan her stepson Brandon’s (Matthew Knight) wedding to Tara (Ashley Leggat) when the happy couple unexpectedly pushes up the date for their big day. Meanwhile, Martha (Catherine Disher), the newly elected mayor of Middleton has roped Cassie into chairing the silent auction to raise much-needed funds for her pet project, the Middleton Botanical Gardens. Audrey (Rachel 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 (Chris Potter), her husband, and local Chief of Police, will they conjure up the truth before it’s too late?
The Good Witch’s Wonder is directed by Craig Pryce, who has helmed all the prior entries as well. It premieres Saturday, October 25, on Hallmark Channel. Will this film lead right into the tv series? Or will they set that up to begin its own plot lines? A question we will have to wait to answer!
