Every Witch Way is an American teen sitcom that premiered on Nickelodeon on January 1, 2014. It is the American Foreign Remake
of the Nickelodeon Latin American teen drama Grachi.
The first season was part of Nickelodeon's "One Month Event", which means that the episodes aired from January 1 to January 30, for a total of 20 episodes. On March 13, 2014, Nickelodeon commissioned a second season of Every Witch Way, which will start airing July 7th.
Tropes seen in Every Witch Way:
- Alpha Bitch: Maddie.
- Big Bad: Principal Torres in the first season.
- Big Bad Wannabe: Maddie was this in the first season, acting as Emma's Archenemy while being overshadowed by the Prinicpal.
- Black Best Friend: Katie
- Brainless Beauty: Sophie
- The Chosen One: Emma is thought to be one early on in the series, and they're right, of course. The Principal is also a "Chosen One" who was thought to have had most of her powers taken away by the Witches Council, but has started to slowly regain them.
- Cultural Translation: Of the aforementioned Grachi. Characters are changed, along with some plot points from the original to better suit it for an American audience. Some of the same sets are even used, since they were both filmed in Miami.
- Cute Witch: The Teen Witches all could be called this.
- The Ditz: Sophie.
- Expy: Sophie can be seen as an Alpha Bitch version of Cat Valentine.
- Foreign Remake: see Cultural Translation above.
- Girl Posse: The Panthers.
- High School Dance: In the episode "The Chosen One".
- Hot Witch
- Literal Split Personality: Happens to Emma in Season 2 when she clones herself. Unique in that the original Emma never actually goes away. The clones are:
- Local Hangout: The Seven.
- The Mentor: Lilly is this to Emma.
- Maddie's mother to Maddie herself.
- Nice Guy: All the boys but especially Daniel.
- Nonuniform Uniform: Iridium High's dress code options range from a school-logo polo and khaki shorts to a very fancy blazer.
- Perverse Sexual Lust: Andi harbors it for a zombie from a video game, even going so far as to consider him her actual boyfriend.
- Pragmatic Villainy: Torres turns people into frogs over petty reasons, but is sure to turn their families into frogs so they don't try looking for them.
- Remake Cameo: Katie Barberi, who plays Ursula in both original and adaption, and Rafael de La Fuente, who played Diego in the original and Julio in the adaption.
- Spell Book: The Hexoren.
- Terrible Trio: The Panthers fit the trope. Not to be confused with the Terrible Three, which is the in-show collective nickname for Daniel's younger siblings.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Andi and Emma.
- Wicked Witch: Maddie would be considered this for the majority of the first season. And the Principal.
