Charmed (1998)

Charmed

A supernatural one-hour drama from Spelling Television, Charmed chronicles the conflicts and the love among three vastly different sisters and their need to come together to fulfill an ancient witchcraft prophecy. As the series begins its seventh season, the Charmed Ones are stronger and more united than ever before.

The Halliwell sisters were always different, not just from the world around them, but also from each other. Though bound together by blood and destiny, these twentysomething women could not have been more dissimilar. Yet the discovery that the three sisters were powerful good witches, foretold as the Charmed Ones, created a bond that reached far beyond petty sisterly grudges, and they banded together to keep their otherworldly witchcraft a secret and vanquish all comers. Charmed stars Alyssa Milano (Melrose Place, Who's The Boss?) as Phoebe, Holly Marie Combs (Picket Fences) as Piper and Rose McGowan (Jawbreaker) as Paige.

Each sister has her own unique set of powers, which are constantly evolving. As the oldest sister, Piper possesses the most active power - the ability to blow things up at will, as well as to freeze people and objects. At the end of last season, Piper and her Whitelighter husband Leo (Brian Krause, Sleepwalkers) suffered a devastating blow when their second son Chris (Drew Fuller, Black Sash, Vampire Clan) came back from the future to warn them of impending evil threatening their older son Wyatt (Jason and Christopher Simmons). After witnessing Chris' death, Leo was overcome with grief and began to question his status as an Elder. Though Chris was reborn as an infant, Leo started to back away from his marriage to Piper. This season, Piper does her best to help Leo deal with his grief and find his way again, all the while struggling to balance raising two young children and managing her nightclub, P3.

Phoebe, after losing her active power as an empath last season, is deeply effected by the loss of her nephew, Chris. This season, Phoebe will try to deal with her grief by taking a leave of absence from her job as an advice columnist. She will find potential romance with the ghostwriter filling in for her, Leslie "Les" St. Claire (guest star Nick Lachey, Newlyweds). Now that the burden of her empath abilities is gone, Phoebe is not certain that she wants her active powers back. She is learning to rely on her Wiccan knowledge of potions and spells, her martial arts skills and her own common sense.

Newest to the Halliwell fold, Paige was raised by adoptive parents and always felt that there was something different about her. In the search for her birth parents, she learned that she was abandoned at a local church as an infant, the result of a clandestine love between Phoebe and Piper's mother and a Whitelighter guardian angel. This ancestry and the unexpected death of the oldest Halliwell sister, Prue, resulted in the awakening of Paige's powers to move things with her mind and to "orb" in and out between planes. This season, Paige takes on the job of saving the Magic School after the Elders have threatened to close it down. Running the Magic School will be more difficult than Paige ever imagined due to the resistance she will encounter from parents and faculty alike.

As they have so often in the past, the Charmed Ones will continue to depend on their loyal friend and protector, Lt. Darryl Morris (Dorian Gregory, The Other Half, Soul Train). After a close call last season, Lt. Morris pulled back from helping the sisters, but he will still prove to be a valuable resource and friend for aid or advice.

As the three most powerful good witches magic has to offer, the Halliwell sisters continue to wage war against evil as they seek to strengthen their sisterly bond and come ever closer to fulfilling their destiny.

The series is produced by Spelling Television, Inc., a Paramount/Viacom company. Aaron Spelling and E. Duke Vincent (7th Heaven, Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place) serve as executive producers along with Brad Kern (Hill Street Blues, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, New York Undercover). Charmed was created by Constance M. Burge (Savannah).
