Charmed 

This reboot of a television classic is one for all you witchy, supernatural lovers. 

Sisters Macy (Madeleine Mantock), Mel (Melonie Diaz) and Maggie (Sarah Jeffery) discover they are The Charmed Ones after the death of their mother. In turn, they become a trio of sassy, badass witches fighting off demons and other dark forces threatening humankind.  

While we’re huge fans of the original Charmed series, we love this progressive reboot for many reasons. The three lead actresses are beautiful Black and Latina women, sister Mel is a strong feminist and activist who is a part of the LGBTQI community, Macy is a budding scientist who is always looking for ways to combine science and magic, and Maggie has a superpower that none of the OG witches had – telepathy.  

Season two of the show has just premiered on 10 Peach, so you can watch the first episode on 10 play right now. If you’re after season one, head on over to https://www.tenallaccess.com.au  and sign up for one free month of access to a bunch of awesome shows!
