The CW’s released new posters promoting the first seasons of the new dramas All American and Charmed. Both shows will make their debut as part of The CW’s primetime fall lineup in October.

According to the network, the All American and Charmed posters were shot by photographer Marc Hom. All American‘s poster includes series stars Taye Diggs as Billy Baker and Daniel Ezra as Spencer James accompanied by the tag line “Dream Big. Stay Real.”

The 2018 revamped version of Charmed stars Madeleine Mantock as Macy Vaughn (Madeleine Mantock), Melonie Diaz as Melanie “Mel” Vera, and Sarah Jeffery as Margarita “Maggie” Vera. The threesome are featured on the poster along with the show’s tag line “Stronger Together.”

All American will premiere on Wednesday, October 10, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT. Charmed is making its debut on Sunday, October 14th at 9pm ET/PT.

The All American Plot: “Spencer James (Ezra) is a rising high school football player and A student at South Crenshaw High. Compton is the place he calls home. But when Beverly High School’s football coach Billy Baker (Diggs) recruits him to join the team in Beverly Hills, Spencer’s mother, Grace (Karimah Westbrook), and his best friend, Coop (Bre-Z), convince Spencer it’s an opportunity he has to seize. Now Spencer must navigate two worlds — the south side neighborhood that he knows and the affluent Beverly Hills world that has offered him an opportunity for something bigger.

When Spencer is forced to move in with Billy and his family to protect his transfer permit to Beverly, Billy’s son Jordan (Michael Evans Behling), the team’s starting quarterback, is less than thrilled to be sharing his father’s attention — or the team spotlight — with Spencer. While Spencer struggles to find his footing, he makes an unlikely friend in Jordan’s sister, Olivia (Samantha Logan), who is dealing with her own demons. He also quickly develops a crush on his classmate, Layla (Greta Onieogou), something her boyfriend, Asher (Cody Christian), quickly realizes — and so, he sets out to drive Spencer off the football team and out of Beverly Hills for good.”

The Charmed Plot: “‘Stronger together.’ That’s what Marisol (guest star Valerie Cruz) tells her daughters, firebrand social justice warrior Melanie “Mel” Vera (Diaz), and her sister, fun-loving Maggie (Jeffery), about their family. Mel is a graduate student in the women’s studies department her mother heads at Hilltowne University; Maggie is a freshman considering sorority rush (to Mel’s amused dismay) and going “on” again with her on-again/off-again boyfriend, Brian (guest star Charlie Gillespie). But then, a shocking tragedy shatters their world and threatens their sibling bond: Marisol dies in a horrifying accident. Or was it? Three months later, we find Mel unable to accept the official explanation of their mother’s death, while Maggie accuses her of being morbidly obsessed. And then, another huge shock shows up at their front door: they have an older sister – brilliant geneticist Macy ( Mantock), whom their mother kept a secret all these years! Macy is new in town and doesn’t know a soul (except for Galvin (Ser’Darius Blain), the cute fellow scientist who’s been showing her around). Macy is eager to connect with Mel and Maggie, but Mel can’t handle another shock, and shuts her out.

With the emotions of all three sisters running high, each of the girls suddenly exhibit impossible new abilities: Mel can freeze time, Maggie starts hearing others’ thoughts and Macy has telekinetic powers. But don’t worry, there’s a perfectly reasonable explanation…or so says Harry Greenwood (Rupert Evans) – who as far as they know is the officious new chair of the women’s studies department – when he gathers the three sisters together to reveal they’re actually powerful witches, as was their mother. And he’s not really a professor, he’s their “Whitelighter,” a witch’s advisor and guide! Not only that, but Mel was right: their mother’s death was no accident – she was murdered by unknown dark forces. It’s a lot to take in, but ultimately the sisters accept their new destiny as The Charmed Ones…and their new duty to protect humankind from the demons that walk among us…one of whom killed their mother. With the Power of Three, they are stronger together… even if they have no idea what they’re really up against.”
