Q: I am curious. Is "Good Witch" ever coming back again? It has been quite a while since it went off the air.

She's through casting spells on Hallmark's "Good Witch," but star Catherine Bell is up to something almost as unbelievable for Lifetime.

Sadly, "Good Witch" has officially been canceled after seven seasons and multiple telefilms and Halloween specials. The show ended with its many characters all poised to embark on new adventures together, which naturally raised hopes of a spinoff or follow-up movie. But nine months after the final episode aired, nothing like that has been announced.

That's not to say that Bell is out of the made-for-TV movie business, however. She recently wrapped filming on a ripped-from-the-headlines drama called "Jailbreak Lovers," playing (get ready for this) a dog-rescue owner who breaks her illicit lover, a convicted murderer, out of jail by sneaking him out in a dog crate.

The movie will air in July on Lifetime, the network that made her a star with "Army Wives" back in the late '00s, but if that doesn't fill the "Good Witch"-shaped hole in your life, you have a couple of other options.

"Good Witch" producer and co-creator Sue Tenney also does a similarly romantic series (minus the supernatural elements) for Netflix called "Virgin River." It's released three seasons so far, and Netflix has already ponied up for two more, with the fourth expected later this year.

There are also always reruns: The entire "Good Witch" series, including the specials and movies, is available on Hallmark Movies Now, Hallmark's own streaming service.
