Charmed reboot casts Ser’Darius Blain as love interest

Grab your cauldrons because the Charmed reboot has just cast its first character.

Sadly, those looking for one of the three sisters, you may have a bit of a wait. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle star Ser’Darius Blain has landed a role in the 21st Century take on the show.

Reported by Deadline, Blain will star as Galvin, who will play a major part as the love interest of the (yet-to-be-cast) Macy.

According to the site, Galvin is: “The ideal boyfriend, funny, mellow, in touch with his emotions, totally on board to follow his lady across the country for her dream job. An aspiring filmmaker who has yet to catch the break he’s sure is just around the corner.”

Macy will be one of the sisters from the Power of Three — replacing Prue, Piper and Phoebe from the original run.

Now that casting has begun, we are patiently waiting for Macy and her two sisters (Mel and Madison), as well as Mel’s lesbian girlfriend and Madison’s ex-boyfriend.

Known for playing Anthony ‘Fridge’ Johnson in last year’s Welcome to the Jungle, Blain’s other credits include Jane by Design and Survivor’s Remorse.

According to The CW, Charmed will be a little bit different to the cult classic we came to love in the ’90s: “This fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series centres on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches. Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done.”

Feelings are mixed toward Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin’s “feminist” reboot of the popular show that ran from 1998 to 2006, with original star Shannen Doherty being particularly outspoken about the project.

However, just let that try and stop us tuning in!
