After last season was cut short due to the pandemic, Charmed is returning to The CW for its third season and we have all the details on how you can watch new episodes of the show on TV or online.
Charmed is actually a reboot of the WB series of the same name which aired for eight seasons from 1998 until 2006. The show tells the story of three sisters (Macy, Mel and Maggie) who discover they are The Charmed Ones following the mysterious death of their mother Marisol.
Together the sisters from a powerful trio of good witches who are destined to protect the lives of innocent people from demons and other dark forces. Although each sister has their own individual magical power, they are actually stronger when they work together as the "Power of Three" to defeat their enemies. Macy, Mel and Maggie are helped by a Whitelighter named Harry Greenwood who serves as their advisor while protecting and guiding the witches as they discover the true nature of their magical power.
Fans of the original Charmed series may notice a few differences in the reboot including the fact that the show's setting is moved from San Francisco to Hilltowne, all of the sisters names begin with 'M' instead of 'P' and that the youngest sister has the power of telepathy instead of premonition.
As the final three episodes in season two of Charmed were not yet filmed at the start of the pandemic, The CW may include their storylines in season three. Charmed's season three premier will see Macy, Mel and Maggie continue their battle with a cabal of humans trying to steal magic for themselves called The Faction which is led by billionaire Julian Shea.
Whether you're a fan of the original series or want to see what happened after season two of the show was cut short, we'll show you how to watch Charmed from anywhere in the world.
