‘Charmed’ Reboot Picked up by The CW
The witches are back.
The CW announced its adding a full season of the Charmed reboot to its 2018-19 lineup.
The reboot will offer a fresh take on the original series which ran for eight seasons (1998–2006) on The WB.
Instead of retelling the story of Prue, Piper, Pheobe, and Paige, the show is set in present day and will focus on three, young Latina sisters – Macy, Mel, and Maggie.
Macy played by Into the Badlands alum, Madeleine Mantock, is the oldest sister and is described as a “witty, intense science nerd with a Ph.D. in quantum physics.”
Mel played by Melonie Diaz, who you may recognize from Fruitvale Station, is the “strong-willed feminist and a lesbian,” middle sister.
The youngest sister, Maggie played by Sarah Jeffrey, who also stars as Audrey in Disney’s Descendants, is “an athletic college student pledging to a sorority.”
The CW describes this updated version as a “fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series.”
If you aren’t hooked already, the network’s official description of the series is: “After the tragic death of their mother, three sisters in a college town are stunned to discover they are witches. Soon this powerful threesome must stand together to fight the everyday and supernatural battles that all modern witches must face: from vanquishing powerful demons to toppling the patriarchy.”
‘The Power of Three’ will make its way on screen later this year.
We can’t wait to see the witches in action.
