Q: Can you tell me when “Good Witch” will be back? It seems like it’s been for­ever!

-- Betty S., Port­land, Ore­gon

A: Catherine Bell and com­pany will be back for more spooky delights on Oct. 22 at 8/7c, when “Good Witch: Spell­bound,” a two-hour movie co-star­ring James Den­ton and Bailee Madi­son, pre­mieres on the Hall­mark Chan­nel. Sea­son four of the se­ries will pre­miere early 2018, so this movie should be enough to tide you over un­til then. I spoke with Catherine re­cently, and she told me all about the fun Hal­loween movie.

“Years ago, a man was in love with one of my an­ces­tors. He couldn’t be with her, so he left town, but not be­fore he cast a curse on Mid­dle­ton. Now some of his prophe­cies are start­ing to come true. One of his curses was that love would be lost for­ever be­cause he lost his love. So we got the band to­gether to try to fig­ure out what it all means and how to get the town through this. I find it al­ways comes back to love and friend­ship and to­geth­er­ness.”

Catherine is thrilled to get back to work with her Hall­mark fam­ily, telling me: “They truly are like the nicest peo­ple ever. Jamie (James Den­ton) is awe­some. The guy has been around for a long time, and he’s seen it all. He’s a fam­ily man. And he’s a moun­tain man. He’s got a ranch in Mon­tana. He’s not Hol­ly­wood, and I love that. He’s just a good guy and a lot of fun. And Bailee is just adorable. She’s so sweet, so smart, so tal­ented -- some­one who’s grown up in this busi­ness and some­how man­aged to stay grounded and stay hum­ble.”

Q: Can you tell me what Michael Emer­son is up to? I loved him on “Per­son of In­ter­est” and “Lost.”

-- Lilly T., via email

A: Michael’s lat­est gig is bit of a mys­tery ... but I’m sure it soon will all un­ravel. He plays (as of this writ­ing) an un­named char­ac­ter on the CW’s “Ar­row.” As his re­cur­ring role un­folds, we’ll find out what his evil plan -- yes, he’s play­ing a vil­lain -- is for Green Ar­row and friends. I’m bet­ting it will be par­tic­u­larly cere­bral and di­a­bol­i­cal. Michael also re­cently had a guest spot on “Claws,” the TNT drama about a woman who owns a nail sa­lon with her best friends, and they are caught up with the lo­cal drug gang and are traf­fick­ing through the shop.

Q: I love Kelly Clark­son’s new song, “Love So Soft.” When will the al­bum be out?

-- Brandi Y., via email A: “The Mean­ing of Life” drops Oct. 27. This is Kelly’s first al­bum with At­lantic Records; she just com­pleted her “Amer­i­can Idol” record­ing con­tract with RCA Records. Also, look for her next sea­son (sea­son 14) on “The Voice,” where she’ll oc­cupy one of the spin­ning chairs as a judge nurturing new mu­si­cal tal­ent.
