Catherine Bell

Hallmark Channel has greenlighted sequels to its original movies The Good Witch and The Note, starring fan faves Catherine Bell and Genie Francis respectively.

Witch's Catherine Bell and Chris Potter will start shooting (thank goodness it's a working title) The Good Witch 2 later this month in Toronto for a 2009 premiere. The sequel will revolve around Cassie Nightingale's (Bell) relationship with Police Chief Jake Russell (Potter), which will be threatened when a new man enters her life, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The original Witch from early this year ranks as Hallmark Channel's second-highest-rated original movie.

Love is set to go into production next month, also in Toronto, for a January premiere. It features newspaper columnist Peyton (Francis) investigating a reader's letter of lost love that gives her insight into her own life. McGinley (aka The Patron Saint of Jump the Shark) plays her colleague King Danville.
