A supernatural one-hour drama from Spelling Television, Charmed chronicles the conflicts and the love among three vastly different sisters and their need to come together to fulfill an ancient witchcraft prophecy. During the fourth season of Charmed, in their charge to vanquish evil and protect the lives of innocents, the sisters face the death of one of their own and the arrival of a sister they never knew. Rose McGowan (Scream) joins the cast this fall as the Charmed Ones' long lost half-sister, Paige.
The three Halliwell sisters were always different, not just from the world around them, but also from each other. Though bound together by blood and destiny, these twenty something women could not have been more dissimilar. Yet, the discovery that the three sisters were powerful good witches, foretold as the Charmed Ones, created a bond that reached far beyond petty sisterly grudges, and they banded together to keep their otherworldly witchcraft a secret and vanquish all comers. At the end of last season, Phoebe (Alyssa Milano, Who's The Boss?, Melrose Place) and Piper (Holly Marie Combs, Picket Fences) suffered a devastating demonic attack and lost their oldest sister, Prue, in the battle. Now, with the addition of a reluctant Paige, the reconstructed trio must attempt to overcome their pain and learn to deal with their new places in the reformulated family.
Created by Constance M. Burge (Savannah), the series is produced by Spelling Television, Inc., a Paramount/Viacom company. Aaron Spelling and E. Duke Vincent (7th Heaven, Beverly Hills, 90210, Melrose Place) serve as executive producers along with Brad Kern (Hill Street Blues, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, New York Undercover).
