The reboot of Charmed has cast its lesbian witch. Melonie Diaz, 33, will play Mel, the sapphic sister who’s set to star in new version of the show.
The original Charmed ran for eight seasons in the late 90s and early 00s.
Diaz, who has been featured in Fruitvale Station alongside Michael B. Jordan, will hit TV screens as a vocal, passionate activist. Mel, described as a “strong-willed feminist lesbian,” will have a police detective girlfriend, Soo Jin – not unlike Maggie Sawyer, Alex Danvers’ ex-girlfriend on Supergirl.
