Bailee Madison is leaving Good Witch, if you hadn’t heard going into tonight’s season 5 finale. The news was first confirmed back when the show was renewed, but it’s still going to ring home tonight amidst graduation and everything else going on within the Hallmark Channel series.
So why is Madison leaving the show? It may just because it’s time. There’s an organic way story-wise in order to make it happen and, beyond that, we’re talking about a young actress who is going to have a wide array of different opportunities.
If you look below via Instagram, you can see what Madison has to say about leaving the show, and how grateful that she’s been to be a part of the series the past several years. We do think, depending on how her exit goes, that there’s a chance that the character of Grace could return down the road. The door always seems to be open — and it would make sense if she did eventually. Good Witch season 6 is going to premiere on the Hallmark Channel in the new year, and it doesn’t seem as though there are any plans for it to slow down in the near future. We’re talking about a series that has a dedicated audience and it tends to retain some of its viewers well, year after year.
So as her time on Good Witch is ending, it’s nice to see Bailee throw out there a metaphorical toast to everyone who she shares so many experiences with — let alone the fans who watched it from the very beginning.

Tonight at 8pm on @hallmarkchannel is the season 5 finale of #GoodWitch and also my final episode as Grace. The feeling couldn’t be more bitter sweet. Thank you so much for loving and watching Grace (and in a way, me) grow up on your screen for the last 5 years, and thank you for tuning in tonight to wish her a farewell. I am so beyond grateful for the memories these last 5 years have provided me, and as this chapter ends tonight I celebrate all that was and all that is ahead. To my cast & crew whom I love so much congrats on this wonderful season, and I hope filming is going well up in Toronto now! All love ❤️❤️❤️ b.
