Charmed (Reboot) – Season 4, Episode 9 (Truth or Cares)

I’m going to start this review by addressing the proverbial elephant in the room – the news that Charmed has been cancelled and this season will be its last.

The news broke about three days ago that the CW cancelled the show. I personally found out about it as I follow one of the show’s writers, Joey Falco, on Twitter. In my personal opinion, as the show was a reboot of another show which aired over 15-20 years ago, and due to history repeating itself with Mantock’s departure and Barrett’s arrival, as well as what I feel has been a decline in quality (writing-wise) this season, I wasn’t that surprised.

However, considering the backlash that the show endured, especially being a reboot, prior to premiering in 2018, how it has developed over time, and how Kaela was written in as a replacement Charmed One and why (which was revealed in this episode), I feel that this incarnation of Charmed has done well for itself, and the cast and crew should be proud of what they’ve achieved. It will be interesting to see how the season (and now the series as a whole) ends, as the writers would have written the finale as a season finale, hoping but not knowing if the series was going to be renewed. I’m sure it won’t be the perfect send off, purely for that aforementioned reason, but I hope it will still be a good ending nonetheless.

Anyway, back to the review of this week’s episode.
