Season two of Charmed is on the way! With only a month left before the premiere, now is the perfect time for a quick refresher on how season one ended.
Charmed may be the reboot the cast never wanted but it’s shaping up to be quite the hit for the CW, and the news fans it has earned since its debut. The entire first season is currently streaming on Netflix. We can expect to see the numbers rise for season two if people discover it on the streaming platform and decide to start watching live!
But before we get to check in on the Charmed Ones in their sophomore season debut, there are a few key details you’ll want to remember. Plus, we also have some essential tidbits about new characters and behind-the-scenes changes!
7. Season two will air on a new day of the week.
Throughout its first season, Charmed aired in a post-Supergirl timeslot on Sunday nights. For its second season, Charmed has been paired with Dynasty and will run on Friday nights.
Don’t panic. Friday night timeslots used to be considered the “death slot,” but it hasn’t been that way on network television for a long time, especially on the CW. Jane the Virgin, Supernatural, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and Dynasty have all aired on Friday nights, and none were prematurely canceled.
Despite JTV and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend both being over now, both were still given an entire season to wrap up. This move shouldn’t be a sign of the CW thinking Charmed is doomed.
6. New characters and showrunners are being introduced in season two.
Expect some changes both on and off the screen in season two of Charmed. Original showrunner, Carter Covington, has exited the series. Season two will lean harder into its supernatural focus as opposed to the family dynamic of season one. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro (Salvation) have boarded the drama as the new showrunners.
As for new characters, expect to meet Alistair’s long-lost daughter. She comes to town seeking revenge for what happened to her father. TVLine also reports that we’ll be seeing a “sexually fluid witch named Kat” and a “sexy boxing instructor named Jordan.”
