What will Charmed season 4 be about?
There will definitely be big changes in Season 4. Seasons 2 and 3 received negative reactions from fans and, consequently, showrunners. Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro have been replaced by Jeffrey Lieber, Joey Falcoand Nicki Renna for the coming season. Audiences are excited about the team change and are demanding to see more spells and magic in future episodes.
In season 3, the Vera sisters took on The Whispering Evil who was kicked out of Jordan using the last spell cast with The Power Of Three. In the last episode, Macy got her hands on a deadly lichen, the only thing poisonous to their enemy, but in doing so she got infected by The Whispering Evil herself and decided to ingest the poisonous plant. Macy revealed that it wasn’t the Lichen that killed her, but rather The Whispering Evil’s death unfolding within her, exploding and attacking her cells.
In the original series, older sister Prue is killed by a demon, which is vaguely reflected in the reboot with Macy’s death. This could mean that the future of the trio could be drawn from the plot of the 1998 series.
With their older sister Macy now gone, the two remaining sisters Mel and Maggie wonder if their loss could mean the end of the Power of Three. In Season 4, Mel and Maggie learn that another good witch exists and with an unknown dark and powerful force ahead, they set out to find her on a witch hunt.
The audience wonders how Harry will cope with the loss of the love of his life. Before Macy’s death, the two were married in a dream by the Guardian, who states that they are spiritually married and eternally bound by love across all dimensions. Macy, however, tells Harry that he will love again before she goes to light. Audiences hope to see Harry find some kind of peace with the love of his life unable to return, regardless of the timeline paradoxes. And speaking of timeline paradoxes, fans are curious what will happen to the apocalypse and Mel’s future baby. Some theorize that if the apocalypse had never happened, future Mel would not have come to give her baby to present-day Mel to keep him safe. But, since giving her baby to Mel, many have wondered what this means for the future and if it hints that an apocalypse is coming, regardless of the sisters trapping the Source in a necklace and hiding the broken pieces. .
On a lighter note, audiences are also hoping to see what happens to Mel and Ruby’s romantic relationship following the magical allergy that split them apart, as well as Maggie and Jordan’s relationship, with Maggie constantly having to push Jordan away for his safety. In the last episode of Season 3, Jordan unlocked a new power that will likely play an important role in the upcoming season.
