This 90s TV classic is getting a reboot with a twist and we're unreasonably excited

90s kids will no doubt remember Charmed – the fantasy TV series about three witch sisters who battle the forces of evil.

The show starred Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano, Shannen Doherty and Brian Krause, and ran for eight seasons from 1998 to 2006.

Talk of a reboot first came about in 2013, but it was announced the following year that CBS, the channel hoping to resurrect the series, was not going ahead with it. Now CBS have reignited hopes with the announcement that the series is back on track.

There’s also a twist in the mix – the series has been ‘reimagined’, not set in contemporary times like the original, but in 1976.


Moreover, the creators of telenovela satirical series Jane the Virgin are attached. The story will be by Jane the Virgin's team of Jessica O’Toole, Amy Rardin and Jennie Snyder Urman, and the script will be written by O'Toole and Rardin. Jane the Virgin director Brad Silberling will exec produce and direct the pilot.

No cast confirmed yet as the project is still at script stage but we’re looking forward to seeing more developments.
