Coming from a long time fan, season three is one of the best seasons ever. So much happens in this season, both on and off camera. Fan favorite Julian McMahon joins the Charmed cast in this season, and becomes part of one of the most long-running storylines for the series: the love affair between Phoebe and Cole. Initially a demon sent to destroy the Charmed Ones, he eventually goes rogue after falling in love with Phoebe. Off camera, something similar happened. Actor Julian McMahon began dating actress Shannen Doherty.

Speaking of Shannen, this is her final season with the Charmed show. After some creative differences with producers and cast, Shannen left the series but not before going behind the camera to direct it's season finale episode. Also to leave the series in season three is the show's creator Constance M. Burge. Fellow executive producer Brad Kern wanted to bring in a season long relationship storyline for the Phoebe character after seeing fan's reaction to season two's Piper/Leo/Dan storyline. Burge was against it as she wanted the series to go back to it's original concept of sisterly ties and exploring the character's wiccan heritage. Eventually she lost out and left the series around the time season three began taping.

The third season of Charmed began in 2000, with the disappearance of Piper (Holly Marie Combs) and Leo (Brian Krause), whom have orbed away 'up there' three months ago in the season two finale. Prue (Shannen Doherty) and Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) are left to fight the demons that attack, and eventually Piper and Leo return.

The third season is a struggle for most of our characters: Piper and Leo try to find a way to still be together, to convince the Elders they can be together and not be distracted when it comes to their duties. Phoebe meets and falls in love with a half-demon, Belthazor, aka Cole Turner (Julian McMahon). At first Cole/Belthazor is to kill the Charmed Ones, but his human half takes over as he and Phoebe fall in love. And lastly, Prue struggles with inner turmoil over various situations, such as finding a perfect relationship, dealing with death, dealing with her responsibilities as an adult and a witch, and of course, with the demonic issues.

The third season is very different from the first two seasons of Charmed, by having more of a seasonal arch, as opposed to monster-of-the-week episodes, which is very common in supernatural shows' earlier days. This season, the sisters are faced with the problems from the Triad (a group of evil beings), Belthazor (Cole Turner, the man/demon Phoebe falls in love with), the Brotherhood (the demonic 'cult' Belthazor was a part of), and lastly, the Source of All Evil.

By the time we get to the finale, Piper and Leo have married, Phoebe is trying to rescue Cole from becoming fully evil, and the Triad is vanquished, along with the Brotherhood. The season finale is definitely the best episode of the season, if not the entire series, and will leave you at the edge of your seat.

Inspired by the actual Earth-centered religion of Wicca, many television viewers in 1998 became enchanted with the fictional story of three extraordinary sisters who, after their grandmother's death, discover that they are witches and that each has a unique magical power. The oldest, Prudence "Prue" Halliwell (Shannen Doherty), discovers that she has a magical "punch" with which she can physically force anyone (or anything) to be thrown away from her. The middle sister, Piper Halliwell (Holly Marie Combs), discovers that she can magically freeze anyone or anything. The youngest sister, Phoebe Halliwell (Alyssa Milano), discovers that she has a magical gift of foresight that allows her to see potentially disastrous future events for individuals if she touches an object that has been handled by them. As it turns out, the sisters' mother, Patty Halliwell (regular guest Finola Hughes), and their grandmother, Penny 'Grams' Halliwell (regular guest Jennifer Rhodes), were also witches. Hidden within their San Francisco house attic is their famed Book of Shadows (book of spells and information about various paranormal beings, such as demons and white lighters). The sisters also discover that they are unique among witches in that they possess the very powerful ability to invoke the "power of three", which is a very powerful incantation that can be used to destroy demons and other evil beings. In fact, that is their mission: to protect the world from the evil attacks of various demons, warlocks and other evil beings. Of course, these newly discovered abilities and frequent attacks from demons wreak havoc for the sisters' lives, especially their careers and attempts at dating.Read more ›
