‘Charmed’ is a fantasy drama that is a modern iteration of The WB series of the same name that ran from 1998 to 2006. The show follows the lives of three sisters – Macy (Madeleine Mantock), Maggie (Sarah Jeffery), and Mel (Melonie Diaz) – who, in the aftermath of their mother’s demise, discover that they have inherited supernatural powers from her. Combining the “Power of Three,” they are the most potent trio of good witches – The Charmed Ones – who are destined to ward off demons and other dark forces from innocent people’s lives.
The Halloween season is close at hand, and having received the previous two installments around this time might make you wonder if you are going to witness the enchanted Hilltowne this holiday season. Well, let’s find out!
Charmed Season 3 Release Date
‘Charmed’ season 2 premiered on October 11, 2019, on The CW, and wrapped up on May 1, 2020, after airing nineteen episodes. Originally ‘Charmed’ season 2 was supposed to comprise 22 episodes, but the production had to be cut short due to the wide-spreading coronavirus. Consequently, the nineteenth episode of season 2 inadvertently became the season finale.
Fans need not worry about its fate hanging in the balance, as The CW renewed the series for a season 3 back in January 2020. After receiving the green light from the network, the show was moving full steam ahead to be a part of The CW’s fall lineup, but with the world in the fatal grip of the coronavirus, the broadcasting schedule got derailed and pushed back thereof. Luckily, the show reportedly went on floors in early October 2020. Considering the delay in production and release schedule, we can expect the ‘Charmed’ season 3 to premiere sometime in January 2021.
