The CW has officially unveiled the first trailer for its Charmed reboot.

The reboot of the hit 90s series was announced earlier this year and described as a "fierce, funny and feminist" reboot of the original series that takes place in present time.

The story will focus on three Pruitt sisters Macy (Madeleine Mantock), Mel (Melonie Diaz) and Maggie (Sarah Jeffery) in a college town who discover they are witches.

After releasing the first images from the show earlier this week, the CW has unveiled the first trailer of the show, giving fans a first glimpse at the sisters in action as well as their mother and whitelighter, Harry (Rupert Evans). 

The reboot, which is being made by Jane The Virgin writers Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin, will also star Ellen Tamaki (Nico), Ser’Darius Blain (Galvin) and Charlie Gillespie (Brian).

The new plot reads: “After the tragic death of their mother, three sisters in a college town are stunned to discover they are witches.

“Soon this powerful threesome must stand together to fight the everyday and supernatural battles that all modern witches must face: from vanquishing powerful demons to toppling the patriarchy."

No release date has been released, but the show is expected to debut this autumn on the CW.
