Hallmark channel renewed its supernatural comedy-drama, Good Witch, for the sixth season on July 3, 2019. However, it will see the exit of the show’s main character Bailee Madison.
By the same token, it is time to welcome back the residents of Middleton with season six of Hallmark’s highest-rated series Good Witch. The supernatural comedy-drama is scheduled for an early May 2020 release, which will air on Hallmark at 8 pm on Sundays.
Bailee Madison Will Not Be Returning in Season Six
However, the catch is Bailee Madison will be bidding adieu to the show after starring as Grace Russell since its launch in 2015. This means Grace will be sent off to college and we will hear of her college experiences through letters to her mom.
The previous season of Good Witch closed out on Grace on the note that she is set to graduate High School in 2019, paving a natural exit for her from the storyline.
Good Witch follows around a pair of mother and daughter Cassie Nightingale and Grace, who share a gift of esoteric insight and divine intuition as they welcome Dr. Sam Radford and his son in the fictional town of Middleton.
Good Witch also stars Catherine Bell and James Denton.
The two most popular series of Hallmark channel are Good Witch and When Calls the Heart.
What happened at the end of the fifth season?
The end of the final episode of the fifth season drew the curtain on the big graduation day. After Grace stitches her own graduation dress and discovers her true passion with the help of Mrs. Hansen, everyone gathered for the Middleton High School Graduation. Grace, who was selected as valedictorian, parted her classmates some pearls of wisdom.
Later that night, Cassie presented her daughter with a very precise graduation gift: a sewing machine, passed down from generation to generation.
The same sewing machine was used to make her Mother’s wedding dress. Mother and daughter proceeded to exchange sweet gestures, and that was the final glimpse we saw of Grace.
The final scene takes a three-month leap to find Cassie return home from Wellingsley. She had just left aspiring fashion major Grace, who was curious to start freshman year.
And with Nick having already fled the coop, Cassie and Sam were set to commence upon the next chapter of their lives as empty-nesters.
Madison’s exit first broke out to the public in July 2019.
Another character likely to not be seen in season 6 is her co-star, Rhys Matthew Bond as even his character, Nick, is a graduate in the final episode.
Season 6: Coming Soon

Why Good Witch is so popular?
