We’ve known that ‘Charmed’ was returning for a second season but not much past that. The CW show was popular enough to earn more episodes for the first season but they did change showrunners before the sophomore outing. While Carter Covington being replaced with Elizabeth Kruger and Craig Shapiro was described as amicable, we do know that the new network and new showrunners wanted to change the focus from family to science fiction and fantasy action.
We’ll see what that means for the direction of the series and how fans respond.
As to the season 2 premiere, the synopsis describes it as:
SEASON PREMIERE — Following the devastating loss of The Elders, Mel (Melonie Diaz), Maggie (Sarah Jeffery) and Macy (Madeleine Mantock) take over their duties. Maggie takes time to celebrate her birthday with a big bash, but Mel finds herself too preoccupied with their new responsibilities to join in the fun. As the girls clean up the following morning, Macy shocks her sisters with an announcement. A mysterious hooded foe attacks The Charmed Ones who escape through a portal while Harry (Rupert Evans) has an unnerving encounter with the villain. The girls land in a secret location where they uncover more about the mystical world of The Elders…and community workspaces.
Macy nurses a serious wound and Maggie meets a handsome stranger (Jordan Donica.) The Charmed Ones quickly become aware of the gravity of their new roles and must decide if they are truly prepared for the responsibility.
On top of the changes, we’ll also see the series returning at a different time slot as well:
“As you know, the Elders are dead, and the Charmed Ones are essentially in charge. And though we all dream of being in charge at some point, the reality is that nothing quite prepares you for the weight of the world, and that’s what they’re going to be carrying in this season. It turns out the events of season one have destabilized the Magical World, unbeknownst to them when we begin the new season. The Witch World is going to descend into chaos without the Elders productions, and we find out that someone — or something — has put a target on the Charmed One’s backs. And that mystery is what’s going to play out in the first half of the season in a mind-blowing way.”
