A reboot of the TV show “Charmed” is officially returning to TV, in a “reimagining” of the original series set in 1976.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the reboot, at CW, will be created by “Jane the Virgin” show runner Jennie Snyder Urman and writers Amy Radin and Jessica O’Toole.
The reboot of the TV show “Charmed”, will be a “reimagining” of the original series. The series will reportedly be set in 1976 and will be related to the original story.
However, the exact layout of the show remains unclear. The old series ran from 1998 to 2006.
Alyssa Milano, who played the character Phoebe Halliwell in the old series, took to twitter to celebrate the announcement with her fans: “#Charmed fans! There are no fans like you. You’re the best of the best.”
Holly Matie Combs, who played Piper Halliwell, although she wasn’t explicit about it, also tweeted in reaction to the news: “We wish them well.”
CBS had previously announced a plan to reboot the show in 2013. However, they did not get the support of the original actors, and so it did not end up happening.
Alyssa Milano had said: The thing about them doing a #charmed reboot is… it just… it feels like yesterday.”
Rose McGowan, who played Paige Halliwell, had also said she generally doesn’t like the idea of reboots: “They really are running out of ideas in Hollywood.”
However, more recently, Alyssa Milano told Entertainment Tonight: “We are all open for it! It seems like that’s going to happen any second. I just feel like with all these reunions, and we still have such a cult following, that I feel like someone’s going to put that together at some point, and we’re all totally on board for that!”
