The plot of”Hocus pocus.”
The first season features three villainous witch sisters Winifred, Sarah, and Mary, creating havoc in Salem. The film began with Thakerey’s sister Emily being swayed away by the witches to their cottage, where they snatched away from her youth in order to regain theirs, and Emily died in this process. Thackeray Binx was turned into a black cat by the witches. Then the film focuses on Max Dennison’s family. Max’s little fault in lighting the candle resurrected the witches. The film ended with the death of Thackeray, who joined his sister Emily and Max Dennison’s returning home happily with his sister Dani. To everyone’s surprise, Winnie’s spellbook opened its eye, revealing it is still awake, and the witches could possibly return again.
The plot of the upcoming season
Since the movie centers around the three witches, they are expected to return again in the second season. We are not sure whether the second season will carry forward the plot of the previous season, or it will bring in a completely different plot.
