Madeleine Mantock Cast In Pilot For The CW’s ‘Charmed’ Reboot!

Hollywood, Hollywood News

The third time’s a charm!

According to several industry publications, Madeleine Mantock has landed the role of the third and eldest sibling in The CW’s Charmed reboot.

She joins Melonie Diaz and Sarah Jeffery as the other sisters, as well as Ser’Darius Blain and Rupert Evans, who are series regulars.

On the planned series, The CW says “this fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series centers on three sisters: Macy, Mel and Madison, in a college town who discover they are witches. Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done.”

Mantock will play Macy. Her character description: A “practical, driven, and brilliant geneticist who has her world blown open when she discovers that the supernatural world is all too real.”

Although not officially confirmed yet, it seems that Macy may be a half-sister to Mel and Madison (or at least considering Mantock’s ethnicity, we truly hope the elephant in the room is addressed, at least).

The network has stated this will be a “feminist” version of the show, and what description has received backlash from its original stars, questioning how the long-running cult classic was not feminist.

The new Charmed is based on a story by Jennie Urman, creator of The CW’s Jane the Virgin. 

Mantock is most known for her series regular role on the first two seasons of AMC’s Into the Badlands.
