CBS Charmed to Reboot Charmed

With the news of a Murder She Wrote reboot is in the works and revitalised versions of Dallas and Hawaii Five-0 currently on our screens, the news that CBS are looking to reboot the supernatural series Charmed makes me wonder if there are any more original ideas out there for a new TV show.

CBS TV Studios, who have the rights the entire Aaron Spelling library, have revealed that they are planning to bring back the classic 90’s show about a trio of sisters (are are also witches) who use their powers for good.  The original series, which began in 1998, ran for eight seasons and starred former Picket Fences star Holly Marie Combs, Beverly Hills 90210 bad-girl Shannen Doherty and child star Alyssa Milano (Doherty who left the show was replaced by Rose McGowan)

Charmed (season 3)

No actual commitment to filming has been made with CBS noting only a pilot script has been ordered and is being penned by Party Of Five co-creator Chris Keyser and partner Sydney Sidner.

Looking at the success of current Fantasy/Horror series, it’s no real surprise that Charmed was picked to be re-boot with The Walking Dead, Once Upon a Time, Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries all pulling strong numbers and with this reboot being created by CBS and not the tween orientated CW network, we’ll have to see just how dark the show could go.

While it’s been seven years since the show aired an original episode,  A report last year said Charmed was the second most binged show on Netflix and repeats still air on both the TNT and WE. networks.
