Ah, yes, Halloween––one of the most celebrated events of the year. However, because of the pandemic, maybe this year’s October fun will most likely be postponed. There are a lot more ways to celebrate the month of spook. One of which is considering yourself lucky as you’re just in time for the return of British kids series The Worst Witch for its fourth season. Here’s everything you need to know about the series!
The Worst Witch is a series produced by the children’s side of the BBC in the United Kingdom, CBBC, alongside Germany’s ZDF. For its international rights, however, Netflix remains to be its rightful owner.
Let’s put you up to speed considering that it’s been three seasons before this one. The series is based on Jill Murphy’s children’s novel series. Through the years, there have been many adaptations for Murphy’s work, however, the one in Netflix remains to be the best out there.
Come to think of it, the third season of the series released on the platform more than a year ago in July 2019. It deserves a warm welcome back to the platform!
Watch out for some season 4 surprises, people, as Mildred Hubble was actually played by a new character. From the first to the third season, the character was always played by Bella Ramsey––yes, the same Bella Ramsey who was in HBO’s Game of Thrones. Now, she’s played by Lydia Page.
Alongside Page are a handful more of new young and rising actors and actresses joining the new season! Luciana Akpobaro will be playing Indigo Moon’s daughter, Billie Boullet will be playing a junior covern leader, and Karen Paullada and Nitin Ganatra to play some new teachers for the show.
For almost all Netflix regions, expect that the fourth season of The Worst Witch will be out by the 1st of October, 2020.
