In today’s movie landscape, reboots are commonplace, and it seems like that trend is very much hitting the television world as well. Now, another classic show is getting the reboot makeover, with the CW at the helm of development.
“Charmed”, the classic WB series about a trio of sisters who happened to be witches, lasted eight seasons and spanned nearly 200 episodes, and has been ranked as one of the most-watched television series on subscription video-on-demand services, so it’s not surprising to see them getting a rebooted series.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the reboot will be a reimagining of the original series that’s set in 1976. While we’re unsure how, the reboot will be connected to the original show in some way. The CW will be teaming up with Jennie Snyder Urman (the showrunner for “Jane the Virgin”) for the reboot, with Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin (“Jane the Virgin” writers) who will contribute the script.

The reboot information comes after CBS had already announced plans to remake the series more than three years ago. However, the CBS reboot never got support from original stars Alyssa Milano and Rose McGowan, and never got past the development stage. It’s unclear how the stars will feel about the CW’s take on the show, but as long as it isn’t too close to home for them, it might be okay.
