The show ended its run in July 1972 after eight seasons, having won Emmys for Asher's direction and Marion Lorne's performance as Aunt Clara. Montgomery was nominated five times for her work as Samantha, but never won. Just the same, she will always be remembered fondly by television viewers for the role of Samantha Stephens. ''{{Tabitha}}'', a SpinOff series built around the now-grown daughter character (played by Lisa Hartman Black), was aired on ABC during the 1977-78 season, bringing supernatural comedy back to the small screen, at least for a while.

while. Dr. Bombay, Abner Kravitz, and Gladys Kravitz's actors reprised their roles as guest stars here, but Samantha and Darrin did not appear as their actors declined.

Added DiffLines:

* ForgotAboutHisPowers: Samantha can use magic to hold people in place with them having no memory about it afterwards, but for most situations where Samantha and/or Darrin need to stall for time, or stop someone from doing something, she tries just about ''anything else'' to keep them occupied.

Added DiffLines:

* TheThingThatWouldNotLeave: Happens when Gladys and Abner Kravitz get into a huge fight, and Abner stays with Darrin and Samantha for a few days, refusing to patch things up with his wife. Made even worse when Abner's snoring keeps them both awake at night, combined with his odd love for brussels sprouts. Samantha eventually gets involved by making them both dream about the day Abner proposed. When they wake up, they both run out the door and into each other's arms.

Added DiffLines:

* VocalEvolution: Elizabeth Montgomery's voice for Cousin Serena was originally just a slightly deeper version of her regular voice, but she kept hamming it up further and further with each new appearance.

*** Incidentally, Mills also starred in "Nanny & the Professor," a less memorable fantastic sitcom about a nanny with ESP. It lasted three seasons around the same era as "Bewitched."

* Really700YearsOld: Exactly how old Samantha (and her relatives) are is left vague, but she is implied to be centuries old
* RecastAsARegular: Creator/PaulLynde appeared in an early episode in a one-shot role that wasn't Uncle Arthur, however, he and Elizabeth Montgomery so loved working together, and the rest of the cast and crew got such a kick out of Paul Lynde and his sense of humor, that the character of Uncle Arthur was created pretty much to bring him back onto the show on a semi-regular basis..
