CHARMED Reboot Pilot Picked Up At CW

The Power Of Three Will Set You Free

If you’re a huge Charmed fan like myself, this is one of the show’s most memorable quotes.  A reboot is getting closer and closer as CW just ordered a pilot.

The original idea for the reboot was to be set in the 70’s and serve as a prequel to the original.

Now the story will focus on three young witches who are also feminists.


“This fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series centers on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches. Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done.”

The script is being written by Jane The Virgin writers Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin.  Brad Silberling will direct and Jennie Urman is executive producer.


Not everyone from the original cast is happy about the reboot.  When rumors started swirling in 2013 they all went to social media to share their thoughts.

“Lame lame lame lamertons.” Rose McGowan who played Paige tweeted.

Alyssa Milano who played Phoebe followed up with “The thing about them doing a #charmed reboot is … it just … it feels like yesterday,” she wrote Friday. “It feels too close.”

Even Shannen Doherty who left the show after three seasons chimed in.

“It’s not happening,” Doherty told THR back in October. “I mean, I just don’t ever foresee it happening now. It would be far too soon, but I also don’t think you need the original cast for a reboot. I know our fans really want us back, but who knows? We were basically a reboot of Practical Magic in its own way, so they could redo it, but now it should just rest.”

Charmed originally aired on WB (now CW) for eight seasons from 1998 to 2006.
