The CW’s Charmed reboot has discovered its first main girl. Fruitvale Station actress Melonie Diaz will play Mel, one of the three witch sisters. As beforehand reported, the character, who’s described as “a passionate, outspoken activist who loses her means within the wake of household tragedy,” will be a lesbian on the upcoming series. Whereas casting for the opposite two sisters, Macy and Madison, has but to be revealed, we already know who will likely be enjoying certainly one of their boyfriends. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle actor Ser’Darius Blain has been cast as Galvin, a documentary filmmaker who’s courting Macy.
The sequence, which is being written by Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin (Jane the Virgin), has actually generated a whole lot of blended reactions because it was picked up for a pilot order. Not solely is the 1998 sequence getting just a few modern-day twists, however the original cast isn’t exactly on board with the reboot. Whereas Shannen Doherty (who performed Prue Halliwell from seasons one to 3) expressed mixed feelings about the revival on Twitter, Holly Marie Combs (Piper Halliwell) has made it extremely clear that she is in opposition to it.
