MIDDLETON CELEBRATES HALLOWEEN WITH A SPECIAL CONTEST AND AN ENIGMATIC STRANGER ARRIVES DURING THE DISCOVERY OF THE MYSTERIOUS PERRIWOOD PROPHESY IN ‘GOOD WITCH: SPELLBOUND’ PREMIERING OCTOBER 22, ON HALLMARK CHANNEL
Stars Catherine Bell, Bailee Madison, James Denton Return
Part of Hallmark Channel’s Annual “Fall Harvest” Programming Event
STUDIO CITY, CA, September 20, 2017 – Cassie, Grace and Sam are back in “Good Witch: Spellbound,” an eerily entertaining, two-hour “Good Witch” Halloween special event premiering Sunday, October 22, (9 p.m. ET/PT) on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s “Fall Harvest” programming event. Based on the wildly popular “The Good Witch” movie franchise, which is the most successful in the network’s history, series stars Catherine Bell (“Army Wives,” “JAG”), Bailee Madison (“Northpole: Open for Christmas,” Just Go with It, “Trophy Wife”) and James Denton (“Desperate Housewives,” “Devious Maids”) return. Cassie (Bell) discovers an old photo of long-ago Middleton resident Cotton Perriwood, taken on his porch, festively decorated for Halloween. Along with it are a dusty crate containing four small gargoyles and muslin sheets that bear the cryptic Perriwood prophecy. A mysterious stranger (Noam Jenkins) arrives in town just as bizarre events begin to occur exactly as foretold in the prophecy.
This leads everyone to fear the curse Perriwood vowed as revenge for being driven out of town and kept from his true love is coming to life, promising to make this the most ominous Halloween of all. While the rest of the town is unsettled by the prophecy that is seemingly on its way to being fulfilled, Nick (Rhys Matthew Bond) is doing his best to find a way to scare Sam (Denton) but his unflappable father can’t be spooked, leaving him deflated. But it’s in a very unexpected way that Nick is finally able to give Sam the fright of his life. Meanwhile, Grace (Madison) conjures up a magical idea to bring out the spirit of Halloween by creating a Halloween decorating contest for the local merchants that would also benefit the children’s ward at the hospital. Although the intention was to bring the town together, conflict is created that threatens to test friendships as well as the survival of love itself. On Halloween night, the entire town – including the mysterious stranger – gathers at Grey House for Cassie’s party and the last of the bizarre events occurs as predicted. When Grace races to discover the missing final page of the Perriwood prophecy, Cassie must interpret the clues to figure out how to stop the curse and, along the way, discovers the future isn’t always written exactly as it seems. “Good Witch: Spellbound” is a Whizbang Films Production in association with ITV Studios America. Dean Batali, Orly Adelson, Jonathan Eskenas, Frank Siracusa and Craig Pryce are the executive producers.
