Welcome back to our weekly preview of The CW's Charmed, which finds our Charmed Ones (Melonie Diaz, Madeleine Mantock, and Sarah Jeffery) not having a whole lot of time to process the newest member of their growing family, second cousin Joséfina (Mareya Salazar). Because as you're about to see from the following preview images for Sunday night's "Bruja-Ha" (directed by Joe Gallagher, and written by Joey Falco and Blake Taylor), there's a small matter of the Tomb of Chaos (the name's a big old warning sign right from the start) and all the stuff that's been let loose from it that they and Harry (Rupert Evans) need to fix- fast. Who created it? Why was it created? What role does Joséfina play in all of this? Questions, questions, questions! Hopefully, tonight's episode offers viewers some answers:
Charmed Season 3, Episode 10 "Bruja-Ha": CONTROLLING THE CHAOS – As the Charmed Ones (Melonie Diaz, Sarah Jeffery and Madeleine Mantock) try to contain what was unleashed from the Tomb of Chaos, they discover who created it…and why. Also starring Rupert Evans. Joe Gallagher directed the episode written by Joey Falco and Blake Taylor.
Last episode, Macy (Mantock), Maggie (Jeffery), and Mel (Diaz) were introduced to their second cousin, Mareya Salazar's (Verliefd op Cuba) Joséfina- and previously, viewers were introduced to J. J. Hawkins' (The Red Line) Kevin. In the following clip, the cast discusses the importance of having trans representation in the series as the series continues to portray a real-world that viewers can relate to in-between the supernatural action and drama:
In the following WonderCon@Home panel, 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.
