List Rules Vote up the best shows on television featuring magic that are currently airing new episodes.

Many television shows utilize magic to add a sense of wonder. The shows put characters we can all relate to into fantastical situations and make us all believe there is something wonderful in our own world. If you are not currently watching the following TV shows about witches and magic, then you are also missing out on wizards, dragons, mystical realms and so much more. 

Harry Potter introduced an entire generation to the power of magic on screen, and there are numerous series that have carried on its legacy in recent years. Supernatural has been around for almost a decade, and every week, viewers can tune in to see how the Winchester brothers fight evil. In the reboot of Charmed to air on The CW, the Vera sisters assume their positions as The Charmed Ones to protect innocent lives. SyFy's The Magicians tells the stories of young people who learn that magic is all too real. Magic may be what gets viewers interested, but it's the characters and compelling story arcs that have them tuning back every week.

Are you a fan of any of these magical TV shows? All of these shows had new episodes air within the last year, allowing you to jump right in and get caught up on the lore. Vote on your favorites to let other readers know what magical shows they should be checking out.
