We are human and we need… a reboot! The CW has teased us with a Charmed revival before, but we have our fingers crossed that it’ll actually happen this time! On Jan. 25, the network announced that they ordered a pilot for a new season of the hit Aaron Spelling series. This time it will be from Jane The Virgin creator and showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman, along with her team of writers from the dramady, according to Deadline.
The CW got us even more amped with the description of the fresh take on the series saying, “this fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series centers on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches. Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done.” The show will feature three new faces, though there’s no word if there will be cameos from some of the original stars.
Though this reimagining will take place in present time, The CW actually ordered a pilot from the same people last year that took place in 1976. Unfortunately, Jennie was too busy with Jane to get around to it, so we hope she made time in her schedule this round!
In Sept. 2017, a close source to Alyssa Milano and Shannen Doherty told Life & Style exclusively that they thought a reboot would be a great idea, but The CW’s plans doesn’t seem to line up with what they were hoping for. “Alyssa and Shannen are hoping Charmed gets a second life on network TV or Netflix,” said the source. “They have been talking to [co-star] Holly [Marie Combs] about reprising their roles. They’re getting a kick out of the idea of getting to play moms in their 40s with teenage witches as daughters.” We hope they’re not too mad being left out of this one!
