We would all realise by now that the age of the ‘reboot’ is in full swing.
We’ve had live-action Disney remakes, TV show revivals, and now one of our fave shows, Charmed, is getting a reboot to make it all fresh and shiny (a.k.a. They’re trying to fix what ain’t broke!).
The first details of the reboot have just been leaked, revealing the names of the characters and a bit about the casting process!
Instead of Piper, Phoebe, Paige and Prue, we’re going to have Macy, Mel and Madison as the leads!
The details also revealed that one of them is lesbian, which has made the queer community happy to see representation diversifying, and even more - they’re casting for ‘all ethnicities’.
Here are the character descriptions, from TVLine:
MACY : A witty, intense science nerd, Macy — who is in her late 20s — 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 : A strong-willed feminist, she 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 : Mel’s younger sister (she’s 18-ish), 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.
We can’t wait to see how this all pans out!
