I just discovered this show on Netflix and am amazed that something so brilliant, engaging and well-written was canceled after only one season.
The characters are well-developed, the cast is believable and the storyline is engaging.
Compared to the reality drivel that has taken over television and cable this was like reading Shakespeare - engaging for those that like to have their brain cells teased a little bit instead of being "dumbed-down" by over-dressed idiots that can't act and think that behaving like a sociopathic idiot is entertainment.
I think commercial interests (e.g. paying sponsors), were put off by the fact that the good guy practices magic and wiccan symbols were displayed in a positive light (e.g. used to suppress evil energies) vs. traditional religious symbols. For the record my religious affiliation is Christian and I am not offended.
The "powers that be" made a mistake, I would pay for a second season!
