Back in January, The CW announced they will be moving forward with the rumored Charmed series reboot calling it a, “fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series.” The new Charmed series will be brought to us by the amazing Jane the Virgin writers Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin, and set in present day. The show will still center around three sisters in a college town who figure out they’re actually witches.
Casting for the new series has begun and TVLine has revealed the new Charmed Reboot sisters casting breakdowns. This time around it’s not Piper, Phoebe, and Paige, but Macy, Mel, and Madison. Can’t keep away from the alliteration can we?
MACY | A witty, intense science nerd, Macy — who is in her late 20s — is a Ph.D. in quantum physics who’s moving with her boyfriend Galvin to Hilltowne, Michigan, to work in the university lab. Macy has reason to believe that she is the sister of Mel and Madison. Her power is telekinesis.
MEL PRUITT | A strong-willed feminist, she feels deeply and is a bit controlling. Mel — who is in her mid 20s and a lesbian — is the sister of Madison. In the wake of a tragic accident, the grieving Mel becomes angry, defiantly unkempt, even violent, pushing away those who might help her, including her girlfriend, Detective Soo Jin. Mel’s power is time-freezing.
MADISON PRUITT | Mel’s younger sister (she’s 18-ish), an athletic (pilates, cheerleading) college student pledging a sorority, Madison is the opposite of her feminist sister with a desire to fit in. Madison is horrified to learn she is a witch. Her power is hearing people’s thoughts.
Not only is the studio looking for the 3 main sisters, but also what seems like their “Whitelighter,” Macy’s boyfriend, Madison’s ex-boyfriend, and Mel’s ex-girlfriend.
HARRY | Mid-30s, Devilishly handsome, incredibly charming, and the Whitelighter who tells the sisters that they’re all witches with magical powers. Even though Harry seems to be the girls advisor he is not to be trusted. — SERIES REGULAR
GALVIN | late 20s. Galvis is Macy’s aspiring documentary filmmaker boyfriend. Galvin is super chill, funny, smart, and super supportive of Macy. — SERIES REGULAR
BRIAN | early 20s. Brian is Madison’s ex-highschool boyfriend who still thinks Macy is “the one”. Brian is a sexy, sensitive, pot dealing loner who maybe more than he seems.
SOO JIN | late 20s. Soo Jin is Mel’s Detective ex-girlfriend who is working the case of Mel’s mothers death.
