Charmed is an American fantasy drama television series developed by Jennie Snyder Urman, Jessica O'Toole, and Amy Rardin. It is a reboot of The WB series of the same name, created by Constance M. Burge, which originally aired from 1998 to 2006. Carter Covington served as showrunner for the first season, and was replaced by married duo Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro for the second season. Charmed premiered in the United States on October 14, 2018 on The CW. It 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 trio of good witches, who are destined to protect innocent lives from demons and other dark forces. Each sister has an individual magical power, which is noticeably stronger when all three sisters work together as the "Power of Three" to defeat their enemies. The sisters are aided by a Whitelighter, Harry Greenwood (Rupert Evans), an advisor who protects and guides witches. In January 2019, The CW renewed the series for a second season, which premiered on October 11, 2019.[2] In January 2020, The CW renewed the series for an upcoming third season, which will be delayed until January 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[3]

Premise[edit]

Originally set in the fictional college town of Hilltowne, Michigan, the series begins with sisters Mel (Melonie Diaz) and Maggie Vera (Sarah Jeffery) living with their mother Marisol (Valerie Cruz), who shortly afterward is attacked and killed by an unknown dark force.[4] 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 afterward, 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 each born to protect them and let them live normal lives, but was in the process of unbinding their powers on the night she was murdered.[5] The sisters ultimately accept their new destiny as The Charmed Ones, the most powerful trio of good witches who protect innocent lives from demons and other dark forces.[6][7]

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'.[8][9] Additionally, the reboot has a more ethnically diverse cast: Mantock is Afro-Caribbean, Diaz is Puerto Rican, and Jeffery is African American, English and Indigenous Canadian.[10][11] However, in the series they all play Latina sisters, with Mantock's Macy and Jeffery's Maggie both being Afro-Latinas.[12]

Cast and characters[edit]

From left to right: Madeleine Mantock (Macy Vaughn), Melonie Diaz (Mel Vera), and Sarah Jeffery (Maggie Vera)

Main[edit]

  • Melonie Diaz as Mel Vera, the middle half-sister in the family. A "strong-willed feminist" and "passionate, outspoken activist," Mel is a graduate student in the women's studies department at Hilltowne University.[13][14] She is a lesbian who was previously in a relationship with Niko (Ellen Tamaki) and Jada Shields (Aleyse Shannon).[5] Mel has the power of time-freezing, similar to the original middle sister Piper Halliwell (Holly Marie Combs) from the original series.[15] Later, Mel develops molecular manipulation, even more similar to Piper's powers, which allows her slow molecules and create ice.
  • Madeleine Mantock as Macy Vaughn, the eldest sister.[5] She is a "practical", "driven", "shy" and "intense science nerd".[13][16] Macy has a PhD in molecular genetics and initially moves to Hilltowne, Michigan, to work in the university lab. Once she arrives in town, Macy discovers that she has two younger half-sisters.[13][17] Macy has the power of telekinesis, similar to the original eldest sister Prue Halliwell (Shannen Doherty) of the original Charmed series.[18] Macy was stillborn as a baby but was brought back to life by necromancy, which caused her to have a demon side. She was later stripped of her demon aspect in the second season.
  • Sarah Jeffery as Maggie Vera, the youngest sister.[19] She is a "bubbly", "fun-loving" and "kindhearted" freshman at Hilltowne University who is pledging a sorority.[13][20] Maggie is initially mortified to learn that she is a witch as she wants to be well-liked and fit in.[13] Maggie has the power of empathy, the ability to read the emotions of other people. This is one of the first differences from the original show as the original youngest sister Phoebe Halliwell (Alyssa Milano) from the original series initially had the power of premonition;[17][21] She later develops the ability of foresight.

She dates Mel Vera until Mel uses a spell to reverse time so that they never met in order to protect her.[13][23][24] Niko returned to Hilltowne as a private investigator and encountered Mel. It is revealed that Niko had a mental breakdown which led to her changing careers, she is engaged to marry Greta, the woman she was with before she met Mel in the original timeline, but her interactions with Mel cause trouble between them much like the original timeline, especially after she learns about Mel's status as a witch and their past relationship. By the end of the first season, Mel decides to let Niko go and move on.
  • Rupert Evans as Harry Greenwood, the sisters' Whitelighter – a guardian angel who protects and guides witches.[25] In the first episode, Harry initially poses as a professor and the chair of the women's studies department at Hilltowne University until he gathers all three sisters together to reunite them and inform them of their destiny as the Charmed Ones. He does not remember his life as a human.[6] By the end of the first season, he is shown to have developed feelings for Macy. Evans also portrays Harry's Darklighter in the second season.
  • Nick Hargrove as Parker Caine (season 1; recurring season 2), Maggie Vera's boyfriend. He is the president of the Phi Delta Upsilon fraternity. He and Maggie become friends after he defends her from a rude customer at her waitressing job.[26] He is later revealed to be a half-demon sent by his father to wreak havoc on the sisters. He betrays his father as he falls in love with Maggie but is forced to leave at the end of the first season to deal with his demon side. He later returns during the second season, where it's revealed that he has taken over demonkind as its new Overlord. After his sister usurps his position as the Overlord, he willingly allows Abigael to strip him of his demon side, which renders him mortal.
  • Jordan Donica as Jordan Chase (season 2), a law student and amateur boxer.[27] It is later revealed that his family was cursed by a witch due to his ancestor having spearheaded the witch's execution, with the result that the men in his family do not live past the age of 25. He breaks the curse for himself but wants to find a way to break it permanently for the sake of his descendants.
  • Poppy Drayton as Abigael Jameson-Caine (season 2), a demon-witch rescued and recruited by Macy.[28] She is later revealed to be a member of the Caine family, being Alistair's daughter and Hunter's and Parker's half-sister, and has a secret agenda to take over demonkind as its Overlord by stealing the position from Parker.

  • Natalie Hall as Lucy (season 1), the superficial, pretentious, and "woke" president of Kappa Tau Kappa, the sorority that Maggie is interested in joining. Lucy initially seems like an airhead but gradually reveals hidden layers and becomes a good friend of Maggie's.
  • Constantine Rousoli as Hunter Caine (season 1), Parker's older, full demon brother. Hunter is a shapeshifter who is tasked with killing powerful witches in order to steal their DNA. It is later revealed that he is doing so in order to try to eliminate his younger brother's human side.

Production[edit]

Background and development[edit]

A reboot of the original Charmed series had been announced since October 2013, when it was originally being developed for CBS by Party of Five co-creator Christopher Keyser and Sydney Sidner. The CBS reboot's pilot script was going to center "around four sisters who discover their destiny – to battle against the forces of evil using their witchcraft."[73] However, CBS ultimately decided not to move forward with the reboot.[74] On January 5, 2017, it was announced that The CW network was developing a new reboot of Charmed by Jane the Virgin showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman for the 2017–18 television season.[75] Urman had been approached in 2016 by CBS Television Studios (who own the rights to Charmed) to work on a new reboot of the show.[76] Urman, knowing that Jane the Virgin writers Jessica O'Toole and Amy Rardin were fans of the original series, brought them on board with her along with director Brad Silberling.[76][77] On why she wanted to reboot the series, Urman explained: "The original was so much about female empowerment and sisterhood and strong women taking over the world and I feel like that's what we need right now. It felt like a good time to get back to that and show women kicking ass."[78] On the reason they chose not to revive the series with the original cast, O'Toole explained: "That show wrapped everything up so wonderfully — they all got their happy endings, and there were even glimpses of their future. We felt like it told a complete story."[79] Urman added that they did not want to mess around with the original because it was eight years of mythology.[80] The CW president Mark Pedowitz weighed in on why Charmed was better as a reboot than a revival, saying "We wanted to take a different path" with Urman's "great" perspective, calling the original series "a great show for that time and place" only.[81]

The CW reboot's original pilot script was going to be a prequel set in 1976 about three witches (Tina, Paige and Annie), who are not related but are brought together to fight evil in a small New England town.[82] O'Toole stated that the prequel would have "explicitly explore[d] the links between the feminist movement and witchcraft."[77] At the time, Pedowitz described the reboot as "a self-contained, self-sustained" and "very standalone show" that would not have any ties to the original series.[83] However, on February 3, 2017, The Hollywood Reporter announced that the reboot would be redeveloped and delayed until the 2018–19 television season, as the pilot draft script "didn't come in the way the network had hoped" and that Urman, who had prior commitments with Jane the Virgin, did not have enough time to fully commit to the reboot for the 2017–18 season.[84] Pedowitz gave an update on the reboot during the Television Critics Association press tour in August 2017, saying that it was still in the redevelopment process and that the network was waiting to see what Urman had come up with for the redeveloped script.[85]

On January 25, 2018, The CW officially ordered the Charmed reboot to pilot.[86] The redeveloped script was changed to be set in the present day and was described by The CW as "a fierce, funny, feminist reboot" centered on "three sisters in a college town who, after the tragic death of their mother, are stunned to discover they are witches."[87] The description also stated that the reboot would revolve around the sisters "vanquishing supernatural demons" and "tearing down the patriarchy," while "maintaining familial bonds."[86] O'Toole told BuzzFeed News that the reason the redeveloped script was changed to the present day was because of the results of the 2016 United States presidential election. She explained, "Suddenly it didn't feel like it should be a period piece anymore. All of the themes seemed more relevant, and we wanted to reconceptualize some things, and it felt like it really should be set in a contemporary world."[77] The pilot episode was written by O'Toole and Rardin, and was based on a story by Urman. All three women became executive producers for the first season alongside Silberling, Ben Silverman, Howard T. Owens, and Carter Covington.[1][13][88] The pilot episode was also directed by Silberling.[88] After the pilot was filmed, Silberling told the Metro newspaper that the appeal of the reboot is to be "fun and contemporary" with its timely social observations.[76] On May 11, The CW picked up the pilot and ordered the Charmed reboot to series with 13 episodes.[89] On October 8, The CW ordered five additional scripts for the first season,[90][91] and a month later, The CW ordered an additional nine episodes, bringing the first season total up to 22 episodes.[92] On January 31, 2019, The CW gave the series an early renewal for a second season.[93] According to Lesley Goldberg of The Hollywood Reporter, Charmed was renewed due to strong international sales.[94]

On March 25, 2019, it was announced that showrunner Carter Covington would be departing Charmed after season one, with married duo Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro taking over as showrunners for season two. Covington was originally brought in as showrunner after Charmed was picked up to series, in order to help executive producers Jessica O'Toole and Amy Rardin, neither of whom had run a show before. Following the change in showrunners, media outlets reported that the second season would lean harder into the supernatural storylines, with less focus on the family dynamics that Covington helped make.[94] However, ahead of the season two premiere, Kruger stated in an interview with TV Insider that the core of the show and "the heart of the story is still about the power of sisterhood and how powerful women can change the world."[95] Shapiro also told TV Insider that they changed the whole tone and visual look of the show to become more "darker, moodier, edgier" and "more cinematic" than the previous season.[95] Both Jeffrey Lieber and director Stuart Gillard also became executive producers for the second season.[96] On January 7, 2020, the series was renewed for a third season.[97]

Casting[edit]

Casting details for Charmed were first revealed by TVLine on February 7, 2018, with the three sisters bearing the unofficial names of Macy, Mel and Madison Pruitt.[17] It also revealed that all ethnicities were being considered for each of the roles and that one of the sisters would be a lesbian, a major change from the original Charmed series where all Halliwell sisters were straight women.[17] TVLine also revealed that casting was underway for the trio's "devilishly handsome" advisor/whitelighter Harry, Macy's "documentary filmmaker-boyfriend" Galvin, Madison's "sensitive loner ex-beau" Brian, and Mel's detective girlfriend Soo Jin.[17] During production, Madison's name was later changed to Maggie, the sisters' family name was changed from Pruitt to Vera, Soo Jin's name was changed to Niko, and Galvin was rewritten as a scientist.[8][98] Former Into the Badlands British actress Madeleine Mantock was cast as the eldest sister Macy, "a practical, driven, and brilliant geneticist".[16] Mantock was cast after Jane the Virgin writer Micah Schraft, who she had worked with on another show five years prior, recommended her to the Charmed producers. Mantock did a Skype interview with the producers because she was in London at the time.[99] In an interview with Teen Vogue, Mantock revealed that she wanted to be part of the show after reading "how funny and smart and conscious" the pilot script was, saying "I thought it was a wonderful way to broach important subjects, be they women's issues or political issues, in a way that's also tied into this wonderful magical fantasy that everybody loves."[10]

Film actress Melonie Diaz was cast as the middle sister Mel, "a passionate, outspoken activist" and lesbian.[14] Diaz, who was the first sister cast in Charmed, was chosen after a successful meeting with the producers, which she felt was "an instantaneous connection".[11][100] Diaz was impressed with their vision for Charmed, saying "I thought it was a really clever, unique way to kind of modernize this big show."[100] Former Descendants and Shades of Blue Canadian actress Sarah Jeffery was cast as the youngest sister Maggie, "a bubbly college freshman" and sorority pledge.[8][20] Jeffery revealed that the producers were at first wary of her auditioning for the show because she was still attached to Shades of Blue. She auditioned for the show with scenes involving a demon dog and a fight with one of Maggie's sisters.[101] Jeffery was eventually released from Shades of Blue so she could do Charmed.[20] Mantock, Diaz and Jeffery did not do any screen tests together, but the latter two described the trio's instant chemistry as "miraculous".[101][102] Diaz stated, "We really feel like sisters," while Jeffery added, "We were lucky – it was an immediate connection. We have a sisterly rapport and it's reflected onscreen."[102]

"I learned so much about the importance of seeing yourself represented on screen and what that means when you're not limiting that field. I think we were just really committed to just showing a different version of Charmed and building upon the incredible sisterhood that they had and then opening up that world so that people could relate to our version."

—Executive producer Jennie Snyder Urman on the importance of having a diverse representation in Charmed.[103]

The three lead actresses are of different ethnic backgrounds: Mantock is Afro-Caribbean, Diaz is Puerto Rican, and Jeffery is African American, English and Indigenous Canadian.[10][11] However, in the series they all play Latina sisters, with Mantock's Macy and Jeffery's Maggie both being Afro-Latinas.[12] Executive producer Jessica O'Toole told BuzzFeed News, "It was always written that way, specifically to have characters who were of color, and with the casting it all kind of came together."[77] O'Toole also added that the decision to make the lead actresses non-white was one of the reasons the producers decided the show would not be based around the Halliwell sisters' children from the original Charmed series, who were all white.[77] Executive producer Jennie Snyder Urman explained that "we've had a chance to see three white witches" and working on Jane the Virgin, which had a predominantly Latinx cast, helped her realize the importance of representation and "what it's like to see yourself onscreen and see yourself be the hero of the story".[104] O'Toole said it was also important to represent the LGBTQ community, which was lacking in the original Charmed series, explaining: "Representation is important and I think it doesn't feel like the real world to not have that."[103] O'Toole said "it felt very natural" to make one of the sisters gay and that "it didn't even come out of a purpose."[103]

Former Man in the High Castle British actor Rupert Evans was cast as Harry, a college professor and the sisters' Whitelighter.[105] Ser'Darius Blain was cast as Galvin, a love interest of Macy's.[106] Blain departed the show at the end of the first season after his character was killed off.[107][108] Charlie Gillespie was cast as Brian, a love interest of Maggie's who only appeared in the first two episodes of the series.[23][109] Ellen Tamaki was cast in the first season as Niko, "a detective on the Hilltowne police force" and lesbian who is a love interest of Mel's.[23] Tamaki did not return for the second season.[110] Nick Hargrove was also cast in the first season as Parker, a fraternity president and new love interest of Maggie's. Hargrove was initially cast as recurring and was later promoted to the main cast.[26] He made his first appearance in the third episode of the first season.[111] Hargrove did not return as a regular for the second season, but made several guest appearances.[110][112] Jordan Donica was cast in the second season as Jordan, a mysterious law student and amateur boxer.[27] Former Shannara Chronicles British actress Poppy Drayton also joined the second season as Abigael, a powerful and mysterious witch.[28]

Filming[edit]

Charmed is filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, where several other CW shows are filmed.[113] The historical J. E. Phillips House, located at 323 Queens Avenue in New Westminster, is used as the exterior for the show's fictional Vera Manor. It pays homage to the original Charmed's Halliwell Manor, in that it is a similar-looking red Victorian house.[114] The house was previously used as an exterior in the television series Witches of East End (2013–14).[115] The exterior scenes used for Hilltowne University during the first season were filmed at the University of British Columbia's Point Grey Campus.[114] The pilot episode was filmed from March 19 to April 7, 2018.[76][116][117] After the pilot was picked up and Charmed was ordered to series, filming for the remainder of the first season resumed on August 13, 2018, and ended on April 26, 2019.[118][119][120]

The second season began filming on July 24, 2019, and was expected to end on April 16, 2020.[121] A full season of 22 episodes was initially ordered for season two; however, production was shut down early on March 12, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, leaving the second season with only 19 episodes.[122][123] Filming for the third season began on September 30, 2020, and is scheduled to conclude on May 21, 2021.[124]

Release[edit]

In the United States, Charmed premiered on The CW on October 14, 2018.[125] The first season aired on Sunday nights at 9:00 pm, with Supergirl as its lead-in at 8:00  pm. The pairing of Charmed and Supergirl returned the network to original programming on Sunday evenings for the first time since the 2008–09 U.S. television season.[6] The CW president Mark Pedowitz explained, "We wanted to have an established show on Sunday night. We wanted name value with Charmed on there. We felt that it was two shows that are empowered women. We were making a statement that we were not kidding, that we're not phoning it in on Sunday night, that we were going to compete."[126] Charmed moved to Friday nights at 8:00 pm for its second season, which premiered on October 11, 2019.[2] The show will return to its original Sunday 9:00 pm timeslot for the upcoming third season, which will be delayed until January 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[3]

The complete first season of Charmed was released via the streaming platform Netflix in the U.S. only in May 2019.[127] The first season was also released on region 4 DVD in Australia and New Zealand on September 25, 2019, and on region 1 DVD in the U.S. and Canada on October 1, 2019.[128][129][130] It was released on region 2 DVD in the United Kingdom on March 16, 2020.[131] The complete second season of Charmed was released via Netflix in the U.S. only in May 2020.[132] The second season was released on region 1 DVD in the U.S. on September 29, 2020.[133]

Critical response[edit]

The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 71% approval rating with an average rating of 6.53/10, based on 31 reviews. The website's consensus reads, "Charmed's updates are as fun as they are surprisingly feminist – and with a sharper focus, it could conjure up an even stronger show than the one that came before it".[177] Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 55 out of 100, based on 13 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[178]

Controversies[edit]

Original cast and fan reactions[edit]

Shortly after the pilot's announcement in January 2018, Holly Marie Combs, a cast member from the original Charmed series, took to Twitter and criticized The CW's decision to reboot the show without any input from the original cast or crew. Combs claimed to have an issue with The CW's "reimagining" of Charmed as the network, formerly known as The WB, chose not to renew the show in 2006 for a ninth season. Combs accused The CW of trying to cash in on the Charmed name and concept, while "capitalizing" on the original cast and crew's hard work.[182] Combs also took issue with the network's description of a "feminist" reboot, which she felt implied the original series was not, by sarcastically tweeting: "Guess we forgot to do that the first go around. Hmph."[183] Combs then implied that the reboot should have a new title, as she felt that it is a brand new show with no ties to the original Charmed. She tweeted that television reboots or remakes "usually have storylines so similar to the original that they are legally required to use the same title and buy the rights to that title", further adding, "If it's not similar than [sic] it's just another show. A new show with a new title."[184] Another original cast member, Alyssa Milano, told Entertainment Tonight that she wished the original cast were involved with the reboot from the beginning of its development at The CW, further adding "I do hope that it reaches the newer generation and impacts that generation the way ours was able to do for its generation."[185]

Shannen Doherty was more positive about the reboot to fans on Twitter, stating that it was a testament to the original that a reboot was even being considered. She also added that she was "intrigued by the idea that a new generation might be comforted, inspired like you all were. Charmed helped us all in some way."[186] However, Doherty admitted that she did take issue with The CW's description of a "feminist" reboot, by tweeting that their wording was "terrible and a bit offensive," but understood that "everyone makes mistakes".[187] Doherty further voiced her support for the reboot in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, stating "I think it's great. I think it's awesome...I'm happy to see that a show, that back then was all about strong women who supported and loved each other, is now coming back again in this day and age." Doherty appreciated the reboot for providing a lot of job opportunities for people, wished the cast and crew well, and hoped that fans of the original series would give the reboot a chance.[188] Rose McGowan was also positive towards the reboot and showed her support to the new lead actresses by tweeting "fly girls, fly." McGowan also added that she had no issues with the reboot and wished "everyone the best".[189] McGowan further voiced her support for the reboot on Instagram, posting "I wish nothing but the best for the new female actors whose careers hopefully will be launched by this show into something long and prosperous."[77]

News of the reboot was met with a mixed response from fans of the original series. Some fans were positive about the reboot, while others were not impressed about the changes made to the series.[182][186] Following the reboot announcement, fans took to Twitter and began to share the #StopCharmedReboot hashtag in attempts to prevent The CW from moving forward with the pilot.[190][191] The CW's president Mark Pedowitz stated that he would like the fans to give the reboot a chance, telling fans that "before you make a decision, watch the series".[192] In an interview with HuffPost in May 2018, Combs spoke up about the reboot again, this time criticizing the show's marketing and the casting of younger actors. She stated that although she appreciates "the jobs and opportunities the Charmed reboot has created", she "will never understand what is fierce, funny, or feminist in creating a show that basically says the original actresses are too old to do a job they did 12 years ago".[193][194] Milano also spoke up about the reboot again to Us Weekly in May 2019, stating that she felt the show "ruined any possibility" of a reunion between the four original lead actresses, calling it "disrespectful" and "sad" that they were not involved from the beginning. Milano believed that they "would have come [together] to do something" as they "created that world" first.[195]

Accusations of colorism[edit]

While the series has been praised for its diversity by casting three women of color in the lead roles, it has also received backlash for being promoted as a Latina-led series when only one of the leads is Latina.[196][197][198] Mantock, who learned Spanish for the role, said of the matter, "I'm open with the writers and trying to be respectful because I'm Afro-Caribbean. I'm not actually Afro-Latina and I want to make that inquiry because Melanie [Diaz] is actually the only person in her real life who is Latina." Jeffery further explained, "I know that we are representing the Latina community. I actually am African-American. I'm not Latina, which is a common misconception." Samantha Chavarria felt that, "the latest reveals around the cast's ethnicities do highlight the very real fact that in their effort to promote a reboot, the CW used colorism and exploitation to spark our excitement and interest."[198] Conversely, Patrick Gomez of EW was more forgiving of the casting because the actresses were unknown and that a search into their ethnicities would have been inappropriate, adding, "I hope people celebrate the fact that an African-American and an Afro-Caribbean woman are being cast as 'Latinas' because Afro-Latina people are not given even a fraction of the visibility they should have in on-camera representations of Latinx people."[199] Princess Weekes of The Mary Sue affirmed Chavarria's assessment of The CW's use of colorism, but felt that the actresses were not to blame, stating "When the creatives realized they'd cast two black actresses who were not Latina in this show, they should have changed the narrative to reflect that."[196]
