The CW’s Charmed reboot has found another of its three leads in Sarah Jeffery (Wayward Pines, The X-Files).
As this is a reboot and not a remake, the show is substituting Prue, Piper and Phoebe for three new sisters: Mel, Macy and Madison.
Jeffery is set to play Madison, the youngest of the sisters, who Deadline describes as “a bubbly college freshman who finds witchcraft at odds with her goal of getting into a super-fun sorority.”
She joins Melonie Diaz (Fruitvale Station), who was recently cast as Mel, “a passionate, outspoken activist who loses her way in the wake of family tragedy,” and Ser’Darius Blain (Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle) as Macy’s boyfriend Galvin, who 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.” Macy is yet to be cast.

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.
