The scrying spell (ahem, casting call) is complete! And fans of the CW’s Charmed now know who will join the cast as the missing Charmed One.
The CW cast Australian actress Lucy Barrett to succeed Madeleine Mantock on the witchy series. Mantock, who played eldest sister Macy, announced her departure from the series near the end of the recent third season. After Macy’s sacrificed herself to save the world, the Charmed trio was down to two.
But with Barrett officially joining Melonie Diaz (Mel) and Sarah Jeffery (Maggie), the Power of Three will be reconstituted.
What exactly that’s going to look like is being kept under wraps though. The new showrunners for season 4 of Charmed – Jeffery Lieber, Nicki Renna and Joey Falco – won’t reveal much about Barrett’s character.
“Her name, backstory, powers, and connection to Mel and Maggie are being kept under wraps, because…well…it’s just more fun that way,” they said in a statement. “What we will say is…she’s an artist, with a wild, unpredictable love for life and a one-of-a-kind view of the world that serves her well in her art, which is her life’s passion. She’s fun, irreverent, impulsive, strong-willed, and will bring a brand-new energy to the Power of Three.”
Well, the showrunners may be staying quiet, but we’ve already got some details about Barrett’s character. You can see what we already know about the new Charmed One here.
In season 4 of Charmed, Mel and Maggie find their lives transformed by the death of their beloved sister, Macy. But when their grief threatens to undo the Power of Three forever, the surprising arrival of a third Charmed One (Barrett) gives them a renewed opportunity to fulfill their destinies. And this couldn’t come at a better time, because a mysterious new enemy is rising in the shadows, instilling fear in every corner of the magical world. But as this new foe draws the Charmed Ones and their allies Harry (Rupert Evans) and Jordan (Jordan Donica) deeper into a twisted game, the question is — will this new trio be ready for what’s to come? Or will their inexperience working together put the entire world in jeopardy?
