The CW’s Charmed reboot has finally finished casting its core trio of witchy sisters. Madeleine Mantock, who has previously starred in other genre TV shows like The Tomorrow People and Into The Badlands, is set to play sister Macy.
Variety describes Macy as “as a practical, driven, and brilliant geneticist. Her world is blown open when she discovers that the supernatural world is all too real.”
Mantock joins Melonie Diaz (Fruitvale Station) as sister Mel, “a passionate, outspoken activist who loses her way in the wake of family tragedy,” and Sarah Jeffery (Wayward Pines) as sister Madison, “a bubbly college freshman who finds witchcraft at odds with her goal of getting into a super-fun sorority.”
Ser’Darius Blaine (Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle) has also been cast as Macy’s boyfriend Galvin. Galvin is “funny, mellow, in touch with his emotions, totally on board to follow his lady across the country for her dream job. An aspiring filmmaker, he has yet to catch the break he’s sure is just around the corner.”

This fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series centres 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.
The show is coming from Jane The Virgin showrunner and creator Jennie Snyder Urman for CBS TV Studios. Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin are writing the script, as well as executive producing alongside Urman, Ben Silverman and Brad Silberling. The latter is also set to directing.
