Charmed: CBS Considering a Halliwell Sister Reboot

Charmed reboot?Vulture reports that CBS is considering remaking Charmed. The original TV show was produced by Aaron Spelling and ran for eight seasons and 178 episodes on The WB.

Apparently Party of Five co-creator Chris Keyser and partner Syndey Sidner are co-writing the project. Those in the know consider it a “re-imagining” of the original Charmed series.

CBS TV Studios holds the rights to the Spelling library and is producing the project with the Tannenbaum Company. Thus far, the network has only asked for a pilot script so the project may or may not move beyond that point.

Revolving around a trio of sisters who discover that they’re witches, Charmed debuted in 1998 with Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs, and Alyssa Milano as the leads. Doherty left after three seasons and her character was killed off. Rose McGowan joined the cast as a previously unknown sibling.

The reruns are still airing on TNT and WE. Last year, a Netflix report noted that Charmed is the service’s second most-binged program.

What do you think? Would you like to see a reboot or some sort of continuation of the original series? Do you think a new Charmed could work?

I would love to see a reboot of the series. I am still watching the old shows ver and ver. I never get tired of them. Also, now there are a lot more people interested and I am sure it would be a big hit.

I still watch all the charm episodes and never get tired of them. I think that it would be just as popular as the old episodes. Yes please we need more Charmed. I hope they have the same people playing in the show if you decide to give it another try.

I definately think a reboot would be great we are huge fans and I honestly think you should follow through with seasons 9& 10 where shannam doraty comes back to help the sisters just like the book you published and carry it out with there kids a second generation

The reboot idea is a little off putting to me as Charmed was one of my favorite shows and I have every season on DVD. However a continuation of it would be awesome! I have been wanting it to continue for years an would love the oppertunity to see more of the story!

That show is still so active in re-runs, it maybe is too soon. What I WOULD like to see is maybe a series “Book of Shadows” chronicling the adventures of all the caretakers of the Book, and some of the history from Melinda Warren to Grams.
