Check out the new Charmed Season 1 Teaser starring Madeleine Mantock, Melonie Diaz, Sarah Jeffery.
Charmed is a reboot of The WB series of the same name, created by Constance M. Burge, which originally aired from 1998 to 2006. Charmed was ordered to pilot in January 2018 by The CW and received a series order in May 2018. It will premiere in the United States on October 14, 2018. The series follows the lives of three sisters—Macy (Madeleine Mantock), Mel (Melonie Diaz) and Maggie (Sarah Jeffery)—who, after the death of their mother, discover they are The Charmed Ones, the most powerful witches, and together they possess the “Power of Three“. Their combined powers are used to protect innocents and vanquish supernatural demons.
Set in the fictional college town of Hilltowne, the series begins with sisters Mel (Melonie Diaz) and Maggie Vera (Sarah Jeffery) living with their mother Marisol (Valerie Cruz), who shortly after is attacked and killed by an unknown demonic force. Three months later, Mel and Maggie discover that they have an older half-sister, Macy Vaughn (Madeleine Mantock), who was kept a secret by their mother for years, but recently moved to Hilltowne to accept a new job at the local university. After the first time the sisters are under the same roof, they unexpectedly start exhibiting new magical abilities; the eldest Macy receives the power of telekinesis, middle sister Mel can freeze time, and the youngest Maggie can hear people’s thoughts. Soon after, their whitelighter—an advisor who protects and guides witches—Harry Greenwood (Rupert Evans) gathers all three sisters together and reveals to them that they are witches, as was their mother. Marisol had bound her daughters’ powers when they were born so they could live normal lives, and was in the process of unbinding those powers on the night she was murdered. The sisters ultimately accept their new destiny as The Charmed Ones, the most powerful trio of witches who protect innocents and vanquish supernatural demons.
The reboot changes several elements from the original Charmed series, including moving the fictional setting from San Francisco to Hilltowne; making the middle sister a lesbian; giving the youngest sister the power of telepathy instead of premonition; changing the family name from Halliwell to Vera; and having all three of the sisters’ alliterative names begin with M instead of P. Additionally, the reboot has a more diverse cast with different ethnicities; Diaz and Jeffery are of Hispanic descent, while Mantock is of Afro-Caribbean descent.
