Back in my freelancing days when I used to craft series of books for clients, I always loved getting assignments on writing supernatural stories that are out of this realm where your imagination and creativity knows no bounds. With the premiere of Charmed, excited to be transported into the world of magic and witches again.
The new Charmed series stars Melonie Diaz (Mel Pruitt), Madeleine Mantock (Macy), Sarah Jeffery (Maggie), Rupert Evans (Harry), Ellen Tamaki (Nico), Ser’Darius Blain (Galvin), and Charlie Gillespie (Brian). Check out the official description for the show:
“This powerful threesome must stand together to fight the everyday and supernatural battles that all modern witches must face: from vanquishing powerful demons to toppling the patriarchy.”
Sisterhood, Supernatural Powers and Social Issues
“Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done.”
Charmed 2018 is a modern-day paranormal drama set in a college town and follows three sisters, Macy, Mel and Maggie, who discover that they’re powerful witches in the wake of their mother’s death while fighting supernatural demons and trying to manage relationships, rivalry and grief. The modern day adaptation is full of dark mystery, and its trailer makes it clear that it will be dealing with intense emotional territory. While honoring the original’s supernatural escapist tone, the show will use its genre to tackle social issues like immigration, sexuality, and sexual assault, proving to be incredibly relevant to our time. In spite of its clear political perspective, the actresses who play the new Charmed sisters hope that it will also be a series with cross-generational appeal.
Check out the trailer below:
So gather your girlfriends, some snacks, a cup of hot cocoa and tune in to the CW this Sunday, October 14 9/8c to follow the lives of Macy, Mel and Maggie as they use their magical powers for the greater good.
