Charmed is back for a reboot! But who are the cast? And what is Charmed about? Here’s everything you need to know about the new CW series about three demon hunting witches.

The Charmed reboot has arrived and we've got our first official trailer, along with its official Fall line-up schedule placement but there's SO much more we want to know about it including release date and full cast details.

The reboot has confirmed its three witch sisters as Melonie Diaz, Sarah Jeffery and Madeleine Mantock are confirmed as Mel, Maggie, and Macy Vera. 

Ser’Darius Blain, and Rupert Evans have also been tapped for the series as a love interest and whitelighter, respectively. 

Charmed, a television show about three witch sisters, ran from 1998 to 2006. The original series maintained popularity over the years, earning cult status among die-hard fans of the supernatural drama. Now, the CW will reboot the series with a completely different set of witch sisters. What can fans expect? 

Will there be a 'Charmed' reboot? Has it been confirmed? 

The CW is not immune to the reboot fever sweeping the entertainment industry. For years, the network has toyed with the idea of bringing back the hugely beloved witch trio. In early 2017, it seemed like CW was eying a Charmed prequel set in the 1970s. However, that idea seems to be no more, as the CW have ordered a pilot of the reboot said to take place in modern times.

Will the original cast be in the Charmed reboot? 

At present, it does not appear that the original cast members (Hollie Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano, Shannen Doherty, or Rose McGowan) have been contacted or asked to be a part of the reboot. 

Hollie Marie Combs has been candid about her own thoughts on the reboot. 

Hollie Marie Combs has repeatedly said she wishes them well on the endeavour. 

Shannen Doherty has expressed some curiosity about the reboot, as well, taking to Twitter to ponder what the CW might plan on doing with the beloved series.

What is the Charmed remake about? Plot -"Feminist reboot"

CW released a description of the upcoming series. This is what they said: 

"This fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series centers on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches. Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done."

Some fans took offence to the subtle implication that Charmed was not feminist the first time around.

The three sisters are named Mel and Maggie Vera and Macy Vaughn. 

So far, it is believed that the new series will once again follow a trio of sisters. Their connection to "the power of three" or the "charmed ones" moniker is currently unknown. 


Who are the creators of the Charmed reboot?

The series is based on a story by Jane The Virgin producer, Jennie Urman. Jessica O'Toole and Amy Rardin (Jane The Virgin) will write and executive produce. Brad Silberling (Jane The Virgin, Dynasty) will direct and executive produce.
