The CW Is Developing a Reboot of CHARMED Set in 1976

Those of you who were fans of the WB series Charmed, will be happy to hear that The CW is is developing a reboot of the hit fantasy series. Charmed starred Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs, Shannen Doherty, and Rose McGowan and ran for eight seasons from 1998 to 2006.

The actresses played sisters who were known as the "Charmed Ones," and they used witchcraft and magic to battle evil. According to Variety, the revival is being developed by Jane the Virgin creator Jennie Urman. She will be writing the series with Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin, who have both worked with her on Jane the Virgin.

At this point, the series only has a script order commitment, but if the network and studio like how that turns out then they'll obviously move forward with a pilot order. There's no information on what this Charmed reboot will entail, but the report does say that it will be a reimagining of the original series that will be set in the year 1976.

I don't imagine that Milano, Marie, Doherty, or McGowan will be a part of the reboot, but we'll just have to wait and see about that.
