Charmed: New Casting Breakdowns Reveal New Sisters & LGBT Twist

Indications are that the Charmed reboot is progressing, and some big revelation about the sisters has been made.

In the original Charmed series we saw Prue, Piper, and Phoebe (ultimately joined by Paige), however, the new series will depict three new sisters as per the latest casting breakdowns (courtesy TV Line). The new sisters are called Macy, Mel, and Madison, and despite not being a part of the breakdowns, casting is also apparently going on for the Whitelighter Harry (Leo), Macy’s boyfriend Gavin, and Madison’s “sensitive loner” former boyfriend, Brian.

You can also spot that Mel Pruitt’s description says “in her mid-20s and a lesbian”, which is a modification from the original trio. That is unlikely to be the sole change, as the casting announcement also has a line about “all ethnicities” being pursued for the roles.

You can read the casting descriptions below.

“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.”

The underdevelopment series is being helmed by Jane the Virgin maker Urman along with Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin, who are mentioned as executive producers. The other executive producers listed are Ben Silverman and Brad Silberling.
