Critics Consensus

Charmed's updates are as fun as they are surprisingly feminist -- and with a sharper focus, it could conjure up an even stronger show than the one that came before it.

Tv Season Info

"Stronger together." That's what Marisol tells her daughters, firebrand social justice warrior Melanie "Mel" Vera, and her sister, fun-loving Maggie, about their family. Mel is a graduate student in the women's studies department her mother heads at Hilltowne University; Maggie is a freshman considering rushing a sorority (to Mel's amused dismay) and going "on" again with her on-again off-again boyfriend Brian. But then, a shocking tragedy shatters their world and threatens their sibling bond: Marisol dies in a horrifying accident. Or was it? Three months later, we find Mel unable to accept the official explanation of their mother's death, while Maggie accuses her of being morbidly obsessed. And then, another huge shock shows up at their front door: they have an older sister, brilliant geneticist Macy, whom their mother kept a secret all these years! Macy is new in town and doesn't know a soul (except for Galvin, the cute fellow scientist who's been showing her around). Macy is eager to connect with Mel and Maggie, but Mel can't handle another shock, and shuts her out. With the emotions of all three sisters running high, each of the girls suddenly exhibit impossible new abilities: Mel can freeze time, Maggie starts hearing others' thoughts, and Macy has telekinetic powers. But don't worry, there's a perfectly reasonable explanation...or so says Harry Greenwood (who as far as they know is the officious new chair of the women's studies department), when he gathers the three sisters together to reveal they're actually powerful witches, as was their mother. And he's not really a professor, he's their "Whitelighter," a witch's advisor and guide! Not only that, but Mel was right: their mother's death was no accident -- she was murdered by unknown dark forces. It's a lot to take in, but ultimately the sisters accept their new destiny as The Charmed Ones...and their new duty to protect humankind from the demons that walk among us...one of whom killed their mother. With the Power of Three, they are stronger together... even if they have no idea what they're really up against.

News & Interviews for Charmed: Season 1

Critic Reviews for Charmed Season 1

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (9)

Charmed certainly has the potential to grow into the show it wants to be, but don't come into this new series looking for nuance or even that electrifying thrill of seeing women using undeniable power to make the world a better place.

Nov 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Surely the new Charmed - which speaks to younger viewers in a language they'll appreciate while honoring the original's themes of sisterhood and female empowerment - can coexist peacefully with the old Charmed.

Oct 15, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Charmed valiantly tussles with carving out its own contemporary identity and the show improves little by little with each episode.

May 29, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

It took some time to get here, but the Charmed Ones finally claimed their power. What an epic display of women power it was.

Oct 17, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The supernatural elements of the plot seem borrowed from old episodes of Supernatural and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The special effects are super-cheesy, not much better than an old episode of Bewitched.

Nov 28, 2018 | Full Review…

While the original Elders were kind of selfish and dumb, these new ones are flat-out malevolent. It's a great change, but it's also seriously messed up.

Nov 6, 2018 | Full Review…

I loved every second of it. I soaked it up.

Oct 31, 2018 | Full Review…

The new Charmed has set itself up as a feminist and progressive upgrade of the original, in ways both positive and problematic. The writers' room is extremely diverse, with a very clear feminist vision of the show.

Oct 23, 2018 | Full Review…

Whether you hit puberty in the 90's or not, Charmed is a reboot that's worth giving a try on namesake alone.

Oct 22, 2018 | Full Review…

I just wish creators would realise that people of colour, feminists and LGBT people are still just people, not caricatures of what we stand for that you can neatly squeeze into a box.

Oct 19, 2018 | Full Review…

I'm curious to see how that same fierce feminism is presented in future episodes... If Charmed can integrate its political bent rather than just shouting out all the greatest catchphrases, it just might be a force to be reckoned with.

Oct 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Diverse retooling of '90s cult-fave has real magic.

Audience Reviews for Charmed: Season 1

  • May 25, 2020
    I really enjoyed the original charmed. However, I love the reboot and the new spin on it. The way they empower women and how the included mixture of cultures. It's a great show!!
  • May 13, 2020
    I watched every episode of the original when they came out and this new series is just a joke. Somehow undermines the entire first season in 10 minutes. Even changed how white lighters look like why call them white lighters if they don't have white light at all??? I'm LGBT and ethnic and they obviously wanted to show how accepting they are of both things like why does everything have to just be about that nowadays
  • May 07, 2020
    Esta temporada continúa siendo floja y convenciendo a medias.
  • Apr 28, 2020
    Too much male hating. Feminist garbage. Show would be 100 times better if they stopped all the man hating.
  • Apr 25, 2020
    With the terrible acting and poor storyline this show is unworthy of its title.. I am absolutely shocked this made it past the first season. Not sure what top critics on here see in this. I usually agree with them.
  • Mar 29, 2020
    I would not waste my electricity to watch this! The original is the BEST. I have the collectors set. All 8 seasons, in a book of shadows. I have watched the original over and over and over. I never get tired of it. I wish they had made a new version, where the kids continue the Charmed legacy. That I would watch.
  • Mar 02, 2020
    Insult to the original of which I loved. Couldn't quite believe just how bad it was. The acting alone is cringeworthy and the plot completely random and nonsensical. So sad. Should not share the Charmed name as this reboot is anything but. A classic case of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". :/
  • Feb 28, 2020
    Horrible acting Horrible storyline Social Justice Buzzwords galore The effects are worse than the 90s-2000s version which is sad There is no cohesiveness in the storyline Idk how the original series that lasted almost 6 seasons before it got ridiculous (8 seasons total) they managed to do in 2 episodes I was a huge fan of the original and this pales in conparison The dialogue for the Mid 20 something college students has never been utter at a college....ever!!! The Hollywood tv executives really have no idea pertaining to what people actually watch, and want to see... no one wants to get lectured while watching a show about witches and demons. They reduced the epic, strong, and fierce female characters with unique and original personal constitutions from the original and turn them into leftwing talking points, or stereotypes of how intelligent people act. The playful banter from the original is completely gone and there is no personality to this show. I've seen web series shows with a quarter of the budget out preform this show on every level. I will say as a mixed race male the leads are attractive and i can see the appeal to have multiracial women front and center, but to do so in this way makes it seem like a tokenization.
  • Feb 10, 2020
    If I could rate negatively, I would. The reboot should have been done with their kids, or this show should have had a different name all together. It is a disgrace.
  • Jan 25, 2020
    the idea of reviving the old series is good, but the execution is crap, everything is bad, especially the script. This is spitting into the soul of fans of the old TV show.
