The CW’s “Charmed” reboot is the gift that keeps on giving. In the months since the television network revealed plans to produce a reboot of the original series that first debuted in 1998, they dropped the news that the sisters would consist of a diverse group of Latinas and that the show would have a feminist bent with characters active in both the Black and LGBTQ communities. Just when we thought any other updates about the show couldn’t beat the show’s casting and story choices, the network revealed the shows intended premiere date. FYI it’s pretty dang powerful.
The “Charmed” episodes are set to be all about the Sunday Feminist Funday.
The CW released its Fall premiere plan for the 2018-19 TV season earlier this week and also revealed that for the first time ever, the show will have a Sunday night lineup. “Charmed” is set to debut on Sunday, October 14th at 9pm after the season 4 series premiere of “Supergirl.” That’s right, your Sunday nights will officially be action/ Feminist-packed.
The network’s other Latina-centric shows like “Jane the Virgin,” and “ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO” are currently being held for the midseason and do not yet have launch dates. Still, we can’t help but keep our fingers crossed in hopes that the network will set their premiere dates on Sunday as well. A whole day of Latina Power sounds a lot like what this world deserves. Am I riiight??
