Is Charmed new tonight on The CW? Looking ahead to episode 18

CharmedIs Charmed new tonight on The CW? Within this piece, CarterMatt is going to give you an answer on this… and then also preview what’s next since there is a LOT of great stuff to be anticipating within the final five episodes of the season.

Let’s kick things off though, by getting some of the bad news over and done with: There’s no new episode tonight. Meanwhile, there’s not going to be a new episode airing next week, either. You’re going to have to wait until Sunday, April 21 to enjoy the latest new episode “The Replacement.” This is certainly going to be one with some fireworks … or at least some spells that feel like fireworks. The first thing that’s going to be interesting about it is seeing how some of these witches operate without Harry around. He’s been a consistent guiding light and with him gone, someone else is going to be bringing their own brand of guidance — and they may happen to be a familiar face.

Isn’t Charmed at least doing a good job of bringing on guest stars familiar to this demographic? We’ve had this season Leah Pipes from The Originals and Tyler Blackburn from Pretty Little Liars, and now another face from Pretty Little Liars in Chloe Bridges (who played Sydney) is coming on board. She’s going to be the person responsible for helping to guide the sisters with Harry gone. For a little bit more on that, and also everything else that’s coming up, check out the Charmed episode 18 synopsis below:

REVELATIONS – When Harry (Rupert Evans) mysteriously disappears, a substitute Whitelighter, Tessa (guest star Chloe Bridges), surprises the sisters. With Galvin’s (Ser’Darius Blain) return imminent, Macy (Madeleine Mantock) knows she must tell him her decision about her demon side. Niko (Ellen Tamaki) is curious when she sees that the Sarcana has cleared out and calls Mel (Melonie Diaz) for clarity, but when Mel arrives she is alarmed at what she discovers. Meanwhile, Maggie (Sarah Jeffery) is trying to figure out how she can pay for college and turns to Macy for guidance. Greg Beeman directed the episode written by Marcos Luevanos & Zoe Marshall (#118). Original airdate 4/21/2019

Through this home stretch of the season, the best thing that this show can do is really beef up some of its magic and its mythology. We’ve already heard that these elements will be the focus of much of season 2, so why not go ahead and give us some of that now? If The CW wants its own version of Harry Potter, this is going to be the closest thing that they’ve got. There’s even a book in the promo art! We’d heavily encourage the writers to lead us into a lot of the mystery and the fun that comes with these three sisters in this world, especially since we still think that they are trying to figure this out. We have a very hard time thinking that they’ve suddenly realized “oh, everything makes sense in my life now!” and they can navigate these two worlds without any problems.

Are you bummed that there is no new Charmed on the air tonight, and what do you want to see on the show moving forward? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts in the comments. (Photo: The CW.)
