Are the Halliwell sisters and the Power of Three returning to the small screen? According to Vulture, they will be if CBS has anything to say about it.
It looks like CBS is currently developing a ‘Charmed’ reboot. Wait...what?
Very little details are available right now, but it seems ‘Party of Five’ co-creator Chris Keyser and partner Sydney Sidner are co-writing the next version, or as insiders call it, a “re-imagining” of ‘Charmed.’ The potential series will be produced by CBS TV Studios (along with the Tannenbaum Company), which has the rights to everything created by producer Aaron Spelling.
‘Charmed’ first premiered in 1998 and lived to see eight seasons. The hit WB magical drama starred Holly Marie Combs, as Piper, Alyssa Milano, as Phoebe, and Shannen Doherty, as Prue. Eventually, Doherty was replaced by Rose McGowan, who took on the other sisterly Halliwell role of Paige. The series focused on the sisterly relationship between three witches who used their powers to vanquish demons and protect innocents. Oh, and the series always had gorgeous men entering and exiting their lives (whether romantic or not), including Brian Krause, Julian McMahon, Ivan Sergei, Drew Fuller and Eric Dane, to name a few.
As a huge ‘Charmed’ fan, the series has only been off the air for seven years, but I'm hestitant to get excited about this so-called revival. Do you think there should be a rule that you have to wait so many years before you bring a show back to life? Don't get me wrong, I still like to catch ‘Charmed’ episodes on TNT, and now Lifetime, so maybe this potential reboot will be better than I think.
So far, only a pilot script has been ordered, with no committent to filming...yet. What do you think about a ‘Charmed’ reboot?
