I loved watching Charmed back in the day, and I’m not going to lie, I’ve re-watched many of episodes when they were made available on Netflix in 2016.
So as you can imagine, I was really excited when I heard that there would be another chance for fans like me to become invested in the fictional lives of a coven of sister-witches, who used their gift to protect their town from evil.
Last November, The CW made the official announcement that Charmed would be returning for the first time since its finale aired in 2006. However, like all the other revivals taking place this year, there will be some major changes.
The show, which is expected to air during the 2018-2019 season, will feature a progressive twist, according to the official description.
“This fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series centers on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches,” read the description. “Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done.”
Fans were initially excited about the fact that the new story opens up an opportunity for the original cast members, Alyssa Milano, Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs, and Rose McGowan to reprise their respective roles as Pheobe, Prue, Piper, and Paige, but it doesn’t seem like that’ll be the case.
The network revealed the new actresses who will be playing the new generation of Halliwells – except they’re actually not Halliwells. The new trio of sisters have Pruitt as their surname.
So who are the new sister-witches?
