When the Charmed Ones (Melonie Diaz, Madeleine Mantock, and Sarah Jeffery) return this Sunday night to The CW, they do so with an episode that has two major headline-grabbing things going for it. First, "No Hablo Brujeria" is directed by Rupert Evans– otherwise known as Harry Greenwood. While in front of the camera, Macy (Mantock), Maggie (Jeffery), and Mel (Diaz) are about to meet the newest member of their family- Mareya Salazar's (Verliefd op Cuba) second cousin Joséfina. The trans actress's character is described as a strong, opinionated young woman who shows up on their doorstep with surprises and secrets- and a mission of her own. Now here's a look at what viewers can expect, with preview images, an episode overview, and a promo for this week's episode of Charmed:
Charmed Season 3, Episode 9 "No Hablo Brujeria": SURPRISE! – The Charmed Ones (Melonie Diaz, Madeleine Mantock, and Sarah Jeffery) are visited by a mysterious stranger looking for answers. Macy helps Jordan (Jordan Donica) face down the past. Also starring Rupert Evans and Poppy Drayton. Rupert Evans directed the episode written by Geraldine Elizabeth Inoa and Jeffrey Lieber.
In the following panel from the recent WonderCon@Home, Diaz, Mantock, Jeffery, and Evans have an in-depth conversation with co-showrunner and executive producer Liz Kruger about the season so far:
The reboot of the iconic series "Charmed" is back for its second season and the Charmed Ones are thrust into a New World Order unlike anything they've ever imagined. After the tragic loss of their mother in season one, the three sisters came together to discover they are formidable witches, and under the guidance of their White Lighter Harry, the Power of Three successfully stopped the impending apocalypse. But saving the world is a tall order, especially when you're not even sure what your place is in that world and now the whole magical community is looking to you.
With the extinction of The Elders, The Charmed Ones are faced with new roles and responsibilities as they find themselves at the forefront of a war between witches and demons looking to take power. Operating within unfamiliar surroundings and working with a newly discovered book of ancient spells, the sisters and Harry must embark on dangerous adventures around the world, testing their powers and their bond. Expanding the mythology in exciting and unexpected ways, season two blazes a new path for the series with new, emotionally resonant episodes filled with high stakes, dark forces, romantic encounters and a season-long mystery that will keep audiences guessing. Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy and maintaining familial bonds, a witch's work is never done.
