‘Charmed’ fans, it’s time to get excited! The CW just announced they are rebooting your favourite show, with a retro twist.
It was announced in Variety that the CW has commissioned a pilot script and that the new series will be set in 1976. Retro Halliwells!
Charmed, starring Shannen Doherty, Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs, and Rose McGowen, ran from 1999-2006 and was a massive hit for the network.
Will the Halliwell sisters be back?
Will we be seeing Prue, Phoebe, Piper and Paige back on our screens?
Details are scarce at the moment. So far all we know is that the new series will be a ‘reimagining’ of the original hit-show and that it will be set in 1976. Whether this means the girls time travel, or if it’s more of a prequel, has not yet been determined.
With Shannon Doherty’s character being killed off during the fourth season and the actress currently battling breast cancer she may be unable to work for some time.
She was fierce, she was strong, she wasn’t simple. She was crazy and sometimes she barely slept. She always had something to say. She had flaws and that was ok. And when she was down, she got right back up. She was a beast in her own way, but one idea described her best. She was unstoppable and she took anything she wanted with a smile. R.M.

What does the original Charmed cast think?
While it hasn’t been announced if the original cast will play a role in the new show they are getting behind the new series.
Holly Marie Combs has tweeted,
We wish them well.

Other planned reboots
Charmed isn’t the only show to be heading back to the small screen. Currently in development is a new series, The Lost Boys, based on the 1980’s Kiefer Sutherland/ Corey Haim film, and a series based on The Notebook. Now if they could just bring back One Tree Hill and Dawson’s Creek we would be set! Can someone get on the phone to Katie Holmes, please?
