Dust off the Book of Shadows, because a reboot of Charmed is in the works!
The CW has announced a reboot of the hit show, but with one big twist… it will be set in 1976.
According the The Hollywood Reporter, the team behind the reboot is being written and developed by the show runners behind Jane The Virgin. It will be connected to the original series, but no word yet on how this will work with the reboot being set so long before the original series in the late 90’s.
The original series starred Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano and Rose McGowan, who have all gone on to become huge stars after Charmed. However, none of the originals have confirmed that they have signed up to the remake, especially after their reactions on Twitter.
Rose McGowan posted a picture of the originals, stating that the team was ‘irreplaceable’:

Holly Marie Combs reacted on Twitter, but it didn’t seem positive.
We wish them well.

This was completely different to Alyssa Milano’s reaction:
#Charmed fans! There are no fans like you. You're the best of the best.

Even without the originals, we can’t wait to watch it!
