Charmed, the TV show, is a TV program that airs on the WB network every Sunday night. The program is currently in it seventh season. Charmed, the TV show, is about a family of modern day witches and the never-ending battle between good and evil. Set in the city of San Francisco, the Halliwell sisters are descended from a long line of powerful witches. The house they grew up in has been in their family for generations and sits on top of a powerful magical nexus. It is the responsibility of the Halliwell family to protect the nexus from falling under the control of warlocks or demons.
There was an ancient prophecy in the magical world, that three sisters, each an extremely powerful witch would be born in the 20th and that when together they had the power to vanquish all evil. These powerful witches were called the charmed ones. Although they are unaware of it, the Halliwell sisters are the charmed ones. And the subject of Charmed, the TV show.
On Charmed, the TV show, when the girls were little, their mother was vanquished by an evil spirit and their grandmother, a powerful witch in her own right, bound the children�s powers so the demons couldn�t sense them in an effort to protect them until they were old enough to understand the destiny of their heritage and the dangers involved. Grams had planned to unbind the girls� powers when she believed they were ready to accept the responsibility having such power involved. Unfortunately, Grams died suddenly from a heart attack.
On Charmed, the TV show, when the girls returned home to bury their grandmother, one of the sisters discovered the �Book of Shadows�, a book that recorded all of the magical knowledge of their family that had been handed down from one generation of witches to the next. She found a spell that called their powers and the sisters suddenly found themselves knee deep in demons and other evil creatures out to destroy them.
Realizing the need to keep their abilities a secret, the sisters try to lead normal lives while protecting the future of good magic from evil. Charmed, the TV show, has followed the Halliwell sisters through the various stages of their lives and the difficulties of trying to lead a normal life when you are one of the most powerful witches alive. Tune in any Sunday night to Charmed, the TV show, and check out the latest happenings in the lives of the Charmed Ones.
