The CW Reboot of CHARMED Has Announced Casting of the Third Sister

The CW has announced that Madeleine Mantock (Edge of Tomorrow) has been casted for the third sister in Charmed

This reboot of the 90s witch show has had mixed reactions from fans say the show isn’t old enough to remake, since the last episode aired in 2006.

Holly Marie Combs, who played Piper on the original hit TV show, tweeted: “I have no words……. I mean I have a lot of words but at this juncture… sure…… yeah ……… We Wish Them Well …………..”

Taking place in present day, here’s the network’s official new description for the new incarnation of Charmed: “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.”

Combs wanted to point out that no reboot could be the same as the original Charmed.

 

Combs went on to write: “Here’s the thing. Until you ask us to rewrite it like Brad Kern did weekly don’t even think of capitalizing on our hard work. Charmed belongs to the 4 of us, our vast amount of writers, crews and predominantly the fans. FYI you will not fool them by owning a title/stamp. So bye.”

 

This reboot series is taking a twist on the original show. The three sisters are all women of color and proud feminists. Mantock, playing the oldest half-sister, is a British Afro-Latina. The other two sisters, Sarah Jeffery and Melonie Diaz, are both Latinas.

 

Beyond the diverse women represented in the new Charming series, Diaz’s character will also be a passionate and outspoken lesbian activist. With this lineup of casting, it’s looking hopeful to see what LGBTQ or POC characters the CW will include next.
