I was hoping that our site would go through an extensive amount of time before we post news about a reboot. Yet, here we are. Per Variety:
The CW is looking to bring back “Charmed.”
The network is developing a revival of the original series that hails from “Jane the Virgin” creator Jennie Urman, Variety has learned.
“Charmed” ran for eight seasons on the WB (now the CW) from 1998 to 2006. The series starred Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs, and Rose McGowan as three sisters, known as the Charmed Ones, who use their witchcraft to fight off forces of evil. The show was produced by Aaron Spelling.
CW has not released much info on the new take of “Charmed,” other than it being a re-imagining of the original TV series set in 1976.
Urman is penning the project with writing duo Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin, who work with her on “Jane the Virgin.” Urman, O’Toole, and Rardin will serve as executive producers, along with Ben Silverman of Propagate Content and Brad Silberling, who will also serve as director. CBS Television Studios is behind the “Charmed” revival, which at this point, has received a script order commitment.
Actually, this might not be so bad. If they bring back the original cast, I’m in. Maybe.
