The original show followed three witches who used their powers for good and to protect innocent people from evil. The cast included Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan, Dorian Gregory, and Julian McMahon. The series ran for eight seasons before it ended in 2006, making it The WB’s second-longest running drama.
For some time, rumors have circulated of a Charmed reboot on the horizon. Last year, original showrunner Brad Kern said he was not opposed to the idea of a revival and Holly Marie Combs told US Weekly in April that the original cast would love a reunion.
While the The CW‘s version of Charmed will not be a reunion per se, it will be a reimagined version of the original series set in 1976. The project is being executive produced by Jane the Virgin creator Jennie Snyder Urman and Ben Silverman, with Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin set to write. No word yet whether any of the original cast members will be involved.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Charmed? Would you watch the reboot?
