After losing her mom in a suspicious house fire, Cassie (Britt Robertson) relocates to her grandmother's home in Chance Harbor, Washington.  For years Cassie's mom prevented her from visiting Chance Harbor, supposedly due to its mischievous children.  Simply labeling the children mischievous is an understatement though; they are actually descendants of witches dating back to the seventeenth century who await Cassie to complete their 'Secret Circle.'

Cassie is reluctant to join the group, but the other teens are unwilling to accept no for an answer.  Without her participation the Circle's powers cannot reach their fullest potential.  Still, their ability to set Cassie's car on fire, or trigger fearsome thunderstorms at will prove intimidating.  Eventually, she succumbs to an extraordinary case of peer pressure.

It's not just the youngsters of this small Washington town who are witches however, but many of its prominent adults as well.  That includes school principal Dawn Chamberlain (Natasha Henstridge) and her daughter Faye (Phoebe Tonkin), along with the town's good Samaritan Adam Conant (Thomas Dekker).

In season one Cassie familiarizes herself with her new companions and surroundings, slowly discovering what it means to be a young witch.  She also becomes increasingly convinced that her mother's death was not accidental, and begins collecting evidence to confirm her beliefs.

The Secret Circle is a television adaptation of novelist L.J. Smith's identically titled trilogy.  Smith's The Vampire Diaries was also transformed into a successful television series, currently in its third season.
