The youngest sister, Madison, will be played by Jeffery. Madison is a bubbly college freshman whose new life as a witch conflicts with her goal of being a sorority girl.

Actor Rupert Evans has also been cast in the reboot as Harry, a "handsome, grandiose" professor with an infuriating charm and a mysterious interest in the three sisters.

Original star Holly Marie Combs had tweeted: "Here's the thing. Until you ask us to rewrite it like Brad Kern did weekly don't even think of capitalising on our hard work. Charmed belongs to the four of us, our vast amount of writers, crews and predominantly the fans. FYI you will not fool them by owning a title/stamp. So bye."

Her former co-star Shannen Doherty said, "I'm intrigued by the idea that a new generation might be comforted, inspired like all you were. Charmed helped us all in some way."
