The Power of 300
Previously in Charmed
The Halliwell sisters—Piper, Phoebe, and Paige—are the Charmed Ones. Together, they alone have access to the greatest source of pure magic the world has ever known... the Power of Three.
The Power of Three was threatened when their dead sister, Prue, was resurrected in the body of a coma patient. For a time, the sisters' magic was thrown off balance... but now, having relinquished the Power of Three, Prue has been imbued with the magic of the nexus of the All, a mystical convergence with untold potential. Though the Power of Three is once again in harmony, Prue must never leave this location of the Nexus, or the sanctity of magic as a whole will be compromised.
This is the story of the four Halliwell sisters...

The Power of Three finally returns in Zenescope's official continuation of CHARMED! When an ancient evil older than time itself targets the Charmed Ones, they will have to call on help from the magical community... including their estranged sister Prue and the former demon Cole, for help. But will it be enough when an Old One sets its sights on the Halliwells?

Notes and Trivia

- Phoebe actually vanquished a demon by kicking him in front of a fireball.
- Paige orbed a vital organ out of someone for the first time in the series, a heart. Although she did try to do this in "Charmed Again", but was stopped. It is also possible that she only managed to extract the heart due to a Power of Three spell that weakened Gaxageal.
