    Default Charmed: The Bewitching Series to get a Magical Reboot

    Prepare to be Charmed all over again! Bewitching '90s series to get magical reboot

    If you you were bewitched by the Halliwell sisters in the '90s... you're in for a treat.

    Just in time for Halloween, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that CBS is working on a 're-imagining' of the series about three sisters trying to live quietly in surburbia... with magical powers.

    The original American series, which ran from 1998 to 2006, starred Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs and Alyssa Milano.

    in this very modern take on the world of witchcraft


    Rose McGowan replaced Doherty after season three to become one of the recognisable faces of the long-running favourite.

    The new version show could do with a wave of a magic wand, however, as there's reportedly only a script at play for the moment.

    No pilot has yet been commissioned according to The Wrap.


    It's a kind of magic: Alyssa, Holly and Rose charmed a generation but will their successors?

    in fantastical adventures


    However, writers Chris Keyser and Sydney Sidner are attached to the project and listed as executive producers.

    Not everyone is happy about the project, however.

    Original star Milano, 40, Tweeted that she thinks it's too soon after the original for a remake.

    She wrote: 'The thing about them doing a #charmed reboot is... it just... it feels like yesterday. It feels too close.'

    While other commentators on Twitter remarked that the supernatural sphere is well covered in television these days, whereas
    Charmed was something of a novelty when it arrived on our screens 15 years ago.


    [Too soon? Series star Alyssa certainly thinks so

    The only thing about this that needs a reboot is Rose McGowan's poor face.
    Bluebonnet, Neptunia and Trixie like this.

    There's sort of a reboot on Lifetime called "The Witches of East End" I don't know the names of the characters yet but I keep labeling them as "the Phoebe one" or that one's Piper. It's pretty much the same show but the mother reminds me of the Prue character and the aunt is kind of like the crazy Grams on Charmed.
    It's not very good either and Julia Ormand (the mother) is a black hole of an actress, really devoid of any charisma and sucks it from anyone around her but the show is still fun for a Sunday night.
