Charmed Reboot Highlights New Sister Trio and LGBT Character

The CW’s Charmed reboot highlights a new trio of bewitching sisters

TVLine has gotten their hands on the casting breakdowns for The CW’s upcoming Charmed reboot. The new series will center around Macy, Mel, and Madison Pruitt, set in the present day, and described as “a fierce, funny, feminist reboot” focused on “three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches.”

Macy is described as a witty, intense science nerd in her late 20s. She is a Ph.D. in quantum physics who’s moving with her boyfriend Galvin to Hilltowne, Michigan, to work in the university lab. Macy has reason to believe that she is the sister of Mel and Madison. Her power is telekinesis.

Mel Pruitt is a strong-willed feminist who feels deeply and is a bit controlling. Mel — who is in her mid-20s and a lesbian — is the sister of Madison. In the wake of a tragic accident, the grieving Mel becomes angry, defiantly unkempt, even violent, pushing away those who might help her, including her girlfriend, Detective Soo Jin. Mel’s power is time-freezing.

Madison Pruitt is Mel’s younger sister (she’s 18-ish) and is an athletic (pilates, cheerleading) college student pledging a sorority. Madison is the opposite of her feminist sister with a desire to fit in. Madison is horrified to learn she is a witch. Her power is hearing people’s thoughts.

Casting is also underway for Harry, the trio’s “devilishly handsome” advisor (or “Whitelighter”) as well as Macy’s documentary filmmaker-boyfriend Gavin and Madison’s “sensitive longer” ex-beau Brian.

It was noted that “all ethnicities” are being sought for all of the roles in the reboot.

The Charmed reboot was written by Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin, who are acting as executive producers alongside Jennie Urman (Jane the Virgin), director Brad Silberling and Ben Silverman.
