I want to talk to you about tv series I love which main characters are witches.

The first one (and maybe the best one as well) is The Witches of East End.

I already wrote something about the book, but now I want to focus on the tv series.

Witches of East End is an American tv series based on the books written by Melissa de la Cruz. The series is set in the fictional seaside town of East End, it follows the lives of a family of witches – Joanna Beauchamp (Julia Ormond) and her two daughters, Freya Beauchamp (Jenna Dewan Tatum) and Ingrid Beauchamp (Rachel Boston), as well as her sister Wendy Beauchamp (Mädchen Amick).

Unfortunately, after two seasons, Lifetime cancelled Witches of East End on November 4, 2014, due to low ratings in the second season. The series finale aired on October 5, 2014.

Evil events and strange dreams are conspiring against Joanna’s efforts to live like a normal human, as well as against Freya’s efforts to have a stress-free engagement and marriage. Before the episode’s end, flowers have burst into flames, photographs have come to life and two people have been rather gorily murdered.

But the proceedings never turn too dark, thanks to zippy repartee among the stars. Ms. Amick is hilarious, and Ms. Dewan Tatum and Ms. Boston make a pretty amusing pair of mismatched sisters.

There is a lot of heavy fare on television on Sunday nights. If “Witches” can retain its wry tone, it will be a satisfying alternative for viewers looking for a lighter way to end the weekend.
