Weirdsister College is the sequel to successful British children's television series The Worst Witch (1998-2001). Weirdsister College ran for only 13 episodes and there have been no publicised talks for a returning series.
From the 26th of October 2009 to mid November, Weirdsister College was shown on Citv Channel. All 13 episodes were shown and aired at 5.30pm to 6.00pm. When all the episodes were aired, The New Worst Witch began.
We follow Mildred Hubble in her first year at Weirdsister College, a university for students of magic. Similar to her adventures at Cackle's, Mildred usually messes up, but saves the day at the end. The series has a darker side than The Worst Witch, with evil creatures and a possible doomsday.
Weirdsister College in Cambridge is an institution where successful students from magical academies and institutes of Great Britain can further their magical education, and where qualified doctors and professors can teach and (along with the students) push the boundaries of magic with experiments. The college has many age-old traditions and legends, such as 'The Agonies' the games held once a year, the prize is possession of The Golden Cauldron, a highly magical artifact, but the winner can only have it for one night.
Nearby, and owned by the College, is Misery's cafe. This is the local hangout for the main characters, and is also the site of Jazz concerts (in which one character, Thunderblast, plays the trombone). Some students had saved the cafe from closure by 'meddling' with time. Also in the town is Jenny Wendle's studio, where meditation classes are held.
The College is a highly magical building, and with so many spells and magical demonstrations being performed, the Fosters effect would destroy the building, so The Bus Spell covers the building and its grounds. This means that every Friday the college has no magic performed in it, or strange events may happen and chaos will rule.
