‘Practical Magic’ Sequel Conjured Up At Warner Bros., Nicole Kidman & Sandra Bullock In Talks To Return

The cauldrons are smokin’ today as Wiccans everywhere rejoice at the news that Practical Magic 2 is officially in the works. Warner Bros. announced the news today of a sequel to the 1998 romantic-fantasy about two sisters from a long line of witches, cursed in that any man who falls in love with them will meet an untimely demise. The film was led by Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock, who Deadline reports are in talks to return.

It’s unclear how big Kidman and Bullock’s roles would be, but their return is sure to make fans very happy. The duo will produce the film, as well. Practical Magic co-writer Akiva Goldsman will also tackle the sequel, but plot details are under wraps for now.

Practical Magic earned $68M when it was originally released in theaters, but grew to become a cult favorite and annual tradition at Halloween. A TV series titled Sudbury was attempted in the early 2000s but it didn’t go anywhere. Another a few years later at ABC Family also failed to get off the ground, followed by HBO’s failed prequel Rules of Magic in 2019. Perhaps all it needed was the right spell?

Warner Bros. has suddenly made Practical Magic available digitally and on MAX, too, so if you need to get reacquainted with the Owens sisters, now is your chance.
