Charmed hires Kaley Cuoco as witch-in-training

The Charmed sisters will welcome a new witch into their friendly fold this fall, when Kaley Cuoco joins the cast as a regular character.

Charmed came close to an early demise this spring, when many assumed it would be cancelled due to steadily declining ratings over the past two seasons. The WB gave the series a stay of execution, however, and it will return for an eighth season in its customary Sunday-night timeslot.

Cuoco, who played Bridget Hennessy in ABC's recently canceled 8 Simple Rules, will take on the role of a young witch under the tutelage of the Charmed trio (Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan , and Holly Marie Combs). This will be her first regular role in a drama series.

In addition to her Rules role, Cuoco has appeared in TV movies and miniseries on ABC and NBC. She will be joined in the Charmed cast by fellow newcomer Mark McGrath, who will appear in several episodes this fall.

Kaley Cuoco actually did really well as Billy in Charmed although the idea of her saving the day on the Series Finale was a bit disappointing. Dont get me wrong, it was a fabulous finale but it was more about bringing the family together for one last goodbye then the actual plot of Christie coming to kill the charmed ones. BTW Billy gets the best power of projection, i mean she can do anything she wants!

without charmed the WB will not be the same, i think it should stay for a few more seasons and maybe go to a next station.

She looks like she's got plenty of potential in her. I'm just glad Charmed is starting up again! It's my favorite series. Always has been. I'm looking forward to seeing four witches instead of three! Two brunettes, a redhead, and a blonde. Love it.

With this new character coming in this season I hope it won't interfere with the lives of the charmed ones person lives. I've fallen in love with watching how the three sisters have lived their lives as normal as they can while defeating demons. But I like just the three of them.

First off: I LOVEd CHARMED AND HAd BEEN FOLLOWING IT FROM EPISODE ONE.

But, umm, has anyone but me noticed that Charmed has become little more than a "guilty pleasure" show. I mean, yeah the show WAS great, but it seems that they are quickly running out of new ideas. Every season they are thinking of "new" demons who never really pose a real threat to anyone or anything. I mean, stealing from Disney and other works of fantasy? I for one am tired of the "demon of the week" crap being fed to us by the burnt-out writers of the show. Even the actors on the show don't seem to be buying it anymore. Don't get me wrong, I LOVEd CHARMED!! But now it's become one of the shows that I catch when I can, not one I follow religiously anymore. Frankly, I'm dissappointed. Hopefully an executive will read this and make some changes.

Horrah! I am so happy to hear that Charmed is coming back. My 80 year old mother loves this program as much as I do, and we watch it together. We were afraid that we would not be able to see what chaos the two babies can cause as they grow into their powers. Adding Kaley Cuoco is a stroke of genius. Now if we could just get "Complete Savages" back our tv viewing would be complete.

I think it will be interesting. When I heard it was one of the girls from 8 Simple Rules I was hoping for the other one but I guess this one is ok. We'll have to wait and see. I think Charmed is good as long as they keep subjects centered around Piper. She's the only reason I watch the show. And the cute babies.

I think this is a mistake...hope im wrong, guess we will just have to wait and see... although i feel the show is based on the sister and that is how it should stay. the thought of bringing in a "new witch" to guide makes me cringe

who ever wants the show to end is dumb. The show is great. I also think that it will be really neat to see some new faces on there.

Kaley Cuoco is an excellent actress and I believe she will bring spunk and fun back into the show which has been taken out over the past couple of seasons. Hopefully, she will not be a bad ass {pardon the language} or else, I can guarantee you that she will be hated by millions over the world.

I'm hoping that adding these two new characters to the mix won't be the death knell to the show. We love the show, as it stood, before the explosion. This after all, may be a good thing; many thought that the show would be cancelled after Ms. McGowan started. And she has been a strong character since she's been added. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Well I Think That This Character Might Do Good Since, Leo Has No Power, Fed, Police,etc...,trying to find out who is phoebe baby's father is and other things. Kaley, Mark. and who ever else joins the show might do good and Just maybe a 9th Season.

With new [hot] people, like Kaley Cuoco and Mark McGrath joining, Charmed will definitely get more success, but we'll still get the great storylines and plots of regular old Charmed. If this is the last season, I would be perfectly happy with that, because few shows even make it to an eighth season.

With more big stars, hopefully the series will attract more viewers, not so that it can be renewed again, but rather so that it can go out on top.

im positive 1 more hot looking witch will make this show even more better good luck for next season!

I think it should end this season to be honest. They've already stretched it as far as it will go. Now it seems to be clinging for dear life.

I'm very pleased to hear that we'll get to see Kaley a little more often. I felt sad for them all on the cast of 8 simple rules, to learn that the series would be canceled : more than half of the regular cast was very young and I feared they would not get to see what they were able to do, when their talent was undeniable!!
So here is one of the three who takes on a new regular and serious role. Can't wait to see her performance!!!

I think Charmed has reach the end of it's glory days. I think WB should end it with a bang while it still can before All Hell Really Breaks Loose.

Charmed will be dramaticly different, and I think in a great way. This way, if that good, could bring a ninth season!!!!!!!!!!

well the only reason WHY the ratings of charmed were going down is because STUPID CTV HAD TO CANCEL IT FOR A MONTH! but I'm glad they are getting new characters on the show :)
