It sounds as though The CW’s Charmed reboot is going well: after being in development for a while, the show has finally been given a full series order.
The network’s description of the show is as follows:
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 core cast is made up of Melonie Diaz (Fruitvale Station) as sister Mel, “a passionate, outspoken activist who loses her way in the wake of family tragedy,” 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,” and Madeleine Mantock (Into The Badlands) as sister Macy, “a practical, driven, and brilliant geneticist. Her world is blown open when she discovers that the supernatural world is all too real.”
Additionally, Charmed will also star Ser’Darius Blaine (Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle) 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.”
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.
