“Charmed” Season 2 “Past is Present” But There Might Not Be a Future [PREVIEW]

Fans of the old Charmed series who never felt “right” giving The CW‘s take a fair shake should’ve been thrilled with the finale to the show’s first season. Without going into heavy “spoiler territory,” let’s just say they won’t have to worry about Macy (Madeleine Mantock), Mel (Melonie Diaz), Maggie (Sarah Jeffery), and Harry (Rupert Evans) treading on any of the previous series’ “sacred ground.”

Even better? Fans of the current series can continue enjoying the series without the constant comparisons – and for the show’s creators, the sandbox of creative possibilities now knows no bounds.

Which brings us to a preview for this week’s episode “Past is Present”, which finds our heroes dealing with threats on a number of fronts – and by the end of the following promo, we learn that one of those threats might be coming from an unexpected (and very personal) source…

“Charmed” season 2, episode 7 “Past is Present”: HELP IS ON THE WAY – Harry (Rupert Evans) and Macy (Madeleine Mantock) make a startling discovery; Maggie (Sarah Jeffery) teams up with Abby (Poppy Drayton) against an unlikely foe. Mel (Melonie Diaz) must save Kat (guest star Shiva Kalaiselvan) from an uncertain fate. Jordan Donica also stars. PJ Pesce directed the episode written by Natalia Fernandez and Blake Taylor.

The reboot of the iconic series “Charmed” is back for its second season and the Charmed Ones are thrust into a New World Order unlike anything they’ve ever imagined. After the tragic loss of their mother in season one, the three sisters came together to discover they are formidable witches, and under the guidance of their White Lighter Harry, the Power of Three successfully stopped the impending apocalypse. But saving the world is a tall order, especially when you’re not even sure what your place is in that world and now the whole magical community is looking to you.
