Charmed Reboot Has Finally Found Its Sisterhood in Season 4

For four seasons The CWs reboot of Charmed has struggled to fully make its mark. The season three exit of Madeleine Mantock gave the show an opportunity to move in a brand new direction with a new sister and a chance to finally move these characters forward. And as of the most recent episode they are succeeding. Macy Mantock sacrificed herself to help save magic and now the Power of Three sisterhood is splintered. Mel Melonie Diaz is dating around being a toxic ghoster and Maggie Sarah Jeffery is going out fighting demons to distract herself from the pain. They are not talking and not searching for the mysterious other member of their trio.

Enter Michaela Kaela Danso Lucy Barrett a mysterious artist from Philly who develops the powers of manifestation. A counterpart to Paige from the original series she is the free-spirited new member who helps the team deal with their grief and move on to continue their purpose.

Kaela is adopted by a Ghanian family and it is great that not only is Blackness a part of her character but it is specific and informs her food and speaking. She is also happily adopted—and her parents are not tragically dead. Thats fantastic. Plus with this new person fitting into a group of hurt people they finally have someone who talks to them and pushes them to be better and more communicative which for viewers is fantastic.

In the most recent episode The Sisterhood of the Traveling Sandwich we finally have Maggie talking about her Blackness again with her admitting that she didnt grow up with it. It was nice to see Kaela and Maggie have that conversation and made me even more frustrated it wasnt something we saw on the series before.

Small things like that have made Kaela and her easy transition into the show a balm. We are finally getting episodes that deal with the Charmed ones and make their core relationship the focus again with episodic monsters of the week that lead into the larger narrative. I am even enjoying that the current storyline is dealing with the Charmed ones status within the magical community especially among non-witches who are seeing themselves as expendable to the witches. It is a compelling storyline and finally something interesting we didnt see in the original. Charmed is often at its best when it is trying to say something meaningful about power.

As someone who is critical of Charmed due to the series colorism but still watched to support the WOC of the series Im glad that Charmed is finally realizing that it needs to be different. With a rotating group of writers and showrunners the show has not been given the best chance so far. As of this writing the show has not yet been renewed for next season. I cant say that the show fully deserves to be brought back—it has been given a lot of chances—but it would be a shame for it to go away when it is finally hitting its stride.
