A supernatural one-hour drama from Spelling Television, Charmed chronicles the conflicts and the love among three vastly different sisters and their need to come together to fulfill an ancient witchcraft prophecy. In the series' sixth season, the Charmed Ones are stronger and more united than ever before.
The Halliwell sisters were always different, not just from the world around them, but also from each other. Though bound together by blood and destiny, these twentysomething women could not have been more dissimilar. Yet the discovery that the three sisters were powerful good witches, foretold as the Charmed Ones, created a bond that reached far beyond petty sisterly grudges, and they banded together to keep their otherworldly witchcraft a secret and vanquish all comers.
Each sister has her own unique set of powers, which are constantly evolving. Phoebe (Alyssa Milano, Who's The Boss?, Melrose Place), who has premonitions and the ability to levitate, has a new power as an empath this season. Her newfound ability to feel what others are feeling will prove extremely useful. New mother Piper (Holly Marie Combs, Picket Fences) can freeze time and cause explosions. As the progeny of a witch and a Whitelighter, Piper's son, Wyatt, has already shown himself to be a powerful magical being, though no one knows yet what powers he possesses or how he will decide to use them.
Newest to the Halliwell fold, Paige (Rose McGowan, Scream) was raised by adoptive parents and always felt that there was something different about her. In the search for her birth parents, she learned that she was abandoned at a local church as an infant, the result of a clandestine love between Phoebe and Piper's mother and a Whitelighter guardian angel. This ancestry and the unexpected death of the oldest Halliwell sister, Prue, resulted in the awakening of Paige's powers to move things with her mind and to "orb" in and out between planes. Paige's more experienced sisters help her harness the power in their battle against evil. Still, Paige has not yet come to grips with witchcraft, and took on a series of temporary jobs this season in her search to find not only a career, but her true purpose in life as well.
