According to TV Line, the new “Charmed” reboot, made by “Jane the Virgin” writers Jessica O’toole and Amy Rardin, follow Macy, Mel and Madison Pruitt, three girls with “strong” and “feminist” personalities who live in a college town and discover that they are witches.

Mel and Madison are the two very different sisters. Mel, who is in her mid-20s, is said to be “a strong-willed, feminist,” and is the sign dating female detective, Soo Jin and Her witchy power is freezing time.

Madison, who is in her late teens, is an athletic college cheerleader who is in the process of pledging a sorority. In contrast to her feminist sister, Madison strives to always adapt. Her power is to hear of any other thoughts.

Finally, there is Macy, who is said to be the oldest of the three witches. Macy is a self-proclaimed “science nerd,” with a Ph. D quantum physics. It is unclear whether Macy is a sister of the Pruitt girls, but the scientist “has reason to believe” she is related to them, according to TV Line.

Of the original “Charmed” cast, Holly Marie Combs, who played Piper, is not held to her feelings about the new TV series.

On Wednesday, the former “Charmed” star tweeted, “I have no words……. I mean, I have a lot of words, but at this time, for sure… …… yes ……… We Wish Them A Lot Of …………..”

But this is not the first time that the actress hit the new “Charmed.”

On Jan. 26, Combs shared a series of tweets with respect to the new series that were not exactly sincere. Although they originally wanted, they do, Combing later backtracked her well-wishing on the show of the new cast, and tweeted a statement saying that the new “Charmed” would ultimately not be compared with what the original was.

“Here’s the thing. Until you ask us to rewrite it as Brad Kern has weekly do not even think to take advantage of our hard work. Charmed belongs to the 4 of us, our huge amount of writers, crews and especially the fans. FYI don’t be fooled by the possession of a title/mark. So bye.”
