Must be the season of the witch! Our favorite spellbinding women from the (tragically canceled) Lifetime series “Witches of East End” will be returning, thanks to a little Netflix magic.
So, when will the whimsical and witchy show be available to binge-watch? Well, according to reports, Freya (Jenna Dewan-Tatum), Ingrid (Rachel Boston) and the rest of the Beauchamp coven will conjure up some drama when Season 2 of the supernatural series streams to Netflix on Tuesday, July 7.
“Witches of East End,” a television series based on the same name novel by Melissa Cruz, first premiered on Lifetime in October 2013. However, the series, developed by Maggie Friedman, was prematurely canceled when ratings started to dip during the sophomore installment. The series finale aired on Oct. 5, 2014 -- leaving audiences with a cauldron full of cliffhangers.
In the series finale, which Friedman warned International Business Times was going to be insane, Killian (Daniel Di Tomasso) downed a bottle of poison elixir (so he and Freya could both be dead) only to learn she was alive! But it wasn't until after he was cured did he find himself in an even bigger pickle.
Killian’s murderous brother, Dash (Eric Winter), who is as handsome as he is devious, found himself behind bars in the finale. In desperation, he chanted a spell that allowed him to trade bodies with his sibling -- freeing himself from prison (and able to live out the remainder of his life with Freya) while Killian’s soul was stuck in jail for a crime he didn't commit.
But that wasn’t the only jaw-dropping moment to occur in the final episode. It was also revealed in the finale that Ingrid was pregnant! But with whose baby? The Mandragora’s or Dash’s? Boston’s character had a pretty sexy season, so the father of her child was left unknown when the series got axed.
"So that’s going to be a big mystery when (I hope) we begin Season 3," Friedman told TVLine prior before the cancellation of Witches of East End." "That’s something Ingrid will have to deal with: Who’s the father of this baby?"
But the biggest cliffhangers “Witches of East End” left fans with was when Wendy (Madchen Amick) willfully killed herself in exchange for Tommy’s (Ignacio Serricchio) life. Following her suicide, Wendy woke up in the underworld surrounded by flames. “Good to see you again, sister,” a mysterious voice said.
“Helena?” Wendy asked as she reunited with her other sister, the Queen of the Underworld, before the series concluded.
"Wendy’s going to get tested down there," the showrunner teased what was going to be the Season 3 storyline to TVLine before the show was canceled. "It’s going to be a tough journey for her as she resolves some things with her sister. I think it’s going to be really fun. We have a lot of cool ideas about how the family is going to go on and what they’re going to do."
Fans can relive all the drama -- including Frillian’s tumultuous relationship -- when Season 2 of “Witches of East End” premieres on Netflix Tuesday, July 7.
