Here is a wrap-up of all the news you need to know from Wednesday, September 8.
Charmed Season 4 may not be arriving until 2022, but the series has announced its new witch.
According to TV Line, Lucy Barrett will join the show,, but the creatives are keeping many details under wraps until transmission.
“Her name, backstory, powers, and connection to Mel and Maggie are being kept under wraps, because… well… it’s just more fun that way,” said co-showrunners Jeffrey Lieber, Joey Falco, and Nicki Renna.
“What we will say is she’s an artist with a wild, unpredictable love for life and a one-of-a-kind view of the world that serves her well in her art, which is her life’s passion.”
“She’s fun, irreverent, impulsive, strong-willed and will bring a brand-new energy to the Power of Three.”
It’s nice to know there’s an element of mystery surrounding this new character.
Far too often, TV shows reveal the details in advance, and well, it’s not as fun for the audience.
Barrett’s casting comes months after the announcement that Madeleine Mantock was stepping away from the show.
