Season 3 of Charmed reboot concluded on July 23 and fans have been wondering whether the trio will return to The CW and if so, when?
WARNING: SEASON 3 SPOILERS
Good news witchy fans, Charmed will definitely return to The CW for season 4!
Given the original show’s reputation as a 00s pop culture icon, it wasn’t a surprise that the series was picked up after the pilot episode in 2018. Now, millennials can relive their teen years, while Gen Z can get a little taste of peak 2000s TV.
So what can we expect from the upcoming season of the Charmed reboot?
Release date and cast updates
Two episodes into the third season, The CW already announced that the fantasy drama was renewed.
Fast forward six months later, there still has been no official air date but the channel has released their fall premiere dates and Charmed is nowhere to be seen.
Season 3 aired in January 2021, so keep your eye peeled during the new year.
Last month, it was confirmed that star Madeleine Mantock would be leaving her post as the eldest ‘Charmed One’ Macy Vaughn after three seasons.
It loosely mirrors the events in the original series where eldest witch Prue Halliwell (Shannen Doherty) was killed off via murder by Shax, a demonic assassin sent by The Source of All Evil.
In the reboot though, Macy gets infected by the only substance toxic to the Whispering Evil but it isn’t the toxin that kills her directly. When the Whispering Evil died, it exploded inside her thus taking her life.
“Playing Macy on ‘Charmed’ for the last three seasons has been an immense privilege and I have so enjoyed working with our fantastic producers, creatives, cast and crew. I’m incredibly grateful to The CW and CBS Studios for my time on the show and for being a brilliant support in my difficult decision to leave. Huge thanks to our fans who can look forward to, what I know will be, a spectacular fourth season.”
Remaining sisters played by Melonie Diaz and Sarah Jeffery will continue on for season four, as will their guardian angel Rupert Evans. Jordan Donica will remain portraying Jordan Chase and Poppy Drayton as Abigael Jameson-Caine.
What happened in the season 3 finale?
We’ve already established that the the biggest plot twist of finale “I Dreamed a Dream…” was the death of Macy, although if you’ve seen the original series, maybe you saw it coming.
Even if you did, Macy’s exist probably wasn’t purely for the storyline because the final few episodes of the season was setting up an intense fight between the sisters and the Whispering Evil, which viewers never witnessed.
Instead, Macy died sacrificing herself to source the toxic fungus hinting that her exit was never planned.
Her absence marks the end of the Power of Three and if the reboot will be anything like the original, the show will continue with a long-lost sister storyline, especially since The Guardian mentioned at the end “She’s out there.”
In an attempt to save Macy, Jordan had to help turn Harry back into a whitelighter again because he was the only mortal present.
It was risk since it wasn’t certain that Harry would be able to withstand the process, so he brought a defibrillator just in case. The device was used but Jordan was caught in the crossfire and we learn that the law student ends up with healing powers.
We’ll have to find out whether he’s been transformed into a whitelighter or just some select powers.
