With Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina offering a darker take on the fresh-faced teenage witch — and Certified Fresh on the Tomatometer with a 91% score to boot — and a new version of Suspiria spooking it up on the big-screen, witches have been working some epic magic on audiences lately.

Need more proof that vampires and zombies have moved on from the spotlight? Take a look at American Horror Story: Apocalypse, which is revisiting its season 3 witches from the Certified Fresh Coven, or The CW’s rebooted Charmed, which has introduced a new generation to the power of three.

Dark magic and sorcery have cemented their place in episodic entertainment over the years, which is why we thought it was the perfect time to concoct a list of TV’s very best witches. Among these magic-doers, you’ll find two very different Sabrina Spellmans, Game of Thrones‘ sinister Melisandre, a whole gang of fabulous American Horror Story women, and a teenage vampire slayer’s loyal best friend. In addition to these icons, wand-twirlers from Penny Dreadful, True Blood, Once Upon a Time, and Bewitched also make an appearance.

So break out the bubbling cauldrons and dust off that flying broom as it’s time to rank these TV witches from best to worst below. And if you don’t see your favorite magic-conjurer on our list, tell us in the comments!
