The character bios for the “fierce, funny, feminist” Charmed reboot are here! The show will once again follow three sisters — Macy, Mel and Madison Pruitt — but this time, not all of them will be straight. Via TV Line, their character bios read:

Mel: A strong-willed feminist, she feels deeply and is a bit controlling. Mel — who is in her mid 20s and a lesbian — is the sister of Madison. In the wake of a tragic accident, the grieving Mel becomes angry, defiantly unkempt, even violent, pushing away those who might help her, including her girlfriend, Detective Soo Jin. Mel’s power is time-freezing.

Macy: A witty, intense science nerd, Macy — who is in her late 20s — is a Ph.D. in quantum physics who’s moving with her boyfriend Galvin to Hilltowne, Michigan, to work in the university lab. Macy has reason to believe that she is the sister of Mel and Madison. Her power is telekinesis.

Madison: Mel’s younger sister (she’s 18-ish), an athletic (pilates, cheerleading) college student pledging a sorority, Madison is the opposite of her feminist sister with a desire to fit in. Madison is horrified to learn she is a witch. Her power is hearing people’s thoughts.

The gals will fight evil alongside their “devilishly handsome” Whitelighter Harry, Macy’s documentary filmmaker boyfriend Galvin, Madison’s “sensitive loner” ex Brian, and Mel’s girlfriend. The show will also be set in a college town so you can forget about all those misty shots of the Golden Gate Bridge right now!

It’s great to see more gay characters being represented on mainstream television but we really hope that the show doesn’t go down the same painfully woke path as the recent Heathers reboot. Piper, aka Holy Marie Combs, doesn’t have much faith.

We’re going to stay positive for now in the hopes that a club like P3 will play a central role in the reboot. Please enjoy this throwback to one of the many amazing performances at the happening club.
