Witchy Goodness

by forherwealth | created - 03 Apr 2014 | updated - 25 Nov 2019 | Public

Witches! Wizards! Mages! Magical realism! Magic. This list includes good, bad, stereotypes, wicca, black and white magick and everything between. Films & TV shows, including anime and special witch-centric episodes. A few of the shows are not witchy per se, but there is a main witch in the show (Buffy, Vampire Diaries.)

I have not included, for the most part, films where a witch lurks in the background as a shadowy creeper and does nothing overly interesting.
