The new generation of Charmed Ones is officially complete. The CW has cast Madeleine Mantock as its third and final sister for their “Charmed” reboot pilot.

The “Into the Badlands” alum joins previously announced “sisters” Melonie Diaz and Sarah Jeffery. Ser’Darius Blain and Rupert Evans will also star in the reboot pilot.
Here is the project’s, which was originally developed last cycle and passed on by the network, official logline: “After the tragic death of their mother, three sisters in a college town are stunned to discover they are witches. Soon this powerful threesome must stand together to fight the everyday and supernatural battles that all modern witches must face: from vanquishing powerful demons to toppling the patriarchy.”
“Jane the Virgin” creator Jennie Urman will executive produce and has a story credit on the pilot, written by “Jane” alums Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin. Ben Silverman and director Brad Silberling will also serve as executive producers on the pilot from CBS Television Studios.
The pilot is a retool of the Aaron Spelling series starring Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano, Shannen Doherty and Rose McGowan, which ran on The WB, now The CW, from 1998-2006.
