If you’ve been looking forward to the return of the Good Witch TV show on Hallmark Channel, you’ll want to adjust your calendar. The supernatural drama series had been set to return on Sunday, May 5th. Hallmark now says that Good Witch will return on Sunday, June 9th at 8 p.m.. Another episode will air on Monday, June 10th at 8 p.m. with the rest of the installments airing on Sundays. The series will take a break in July and season five will wrap on August 18th (see below for details).
It appears that the rescheduling of Good Witch is due to Hallmark’s decision to pull and rework the remaining episodes of season six of When Calls the Heart. That series returns on Good Witch’s former premiere date, May 5th.
Here’s the press release:
