Wormholes (WHs) are a solution for General Relativity field equations which characterize a passage or tunnel that connects two different regions of spacetime and is filled by some sort of exotic matter that does not satisfy the energy conditions. On the other hand, it is known that in extended theories of gravity, the extra degrees of freedom once provided may allow the energy conditions to be obeyed and, consequently, the matter content of the WH to be nonexotic. In this work, we obtain, as a novelty in the literature, solutions for charged WHs in the f (R, T)-extended theory of gravity. We show that the presence of charge in these objects may be a possibility to respect some stability conditions for their metric. Also, remarkably, the energy conditions are respected in the present approach. In addition, we argue that our framework can be very useful to study the possibility of evolving (2 + 1) and (3 + 1)-dimensional WH spacetime within the context of nonlinear electrodynamics, which open a new window to probe the physical quantities in a WH-type solution.
