Don’t Be Alarmed, CBS Is Working On A Reboot Of Charmed

CBS is hoping the Power of Three will make them money.
Ok, stopping the rhymes now. Let’s be real. I loved Charmed. I loved it. Although it ran for an inexplicable eight seasons on The WB, the Constance M. Burge series will forever hold a place in my heart. For me, it sat alongside Buffy the Vampire Slayer as my weekly fantasy/horror/monster fix featuring great lady characters (it was actually named the longest running hour-long TV series featuring all female leads). Now it seems as if CBS would like a new generation to learn about the Halliwell sisters.
The Hollywood Reporter says CBS has give out a script commitment for a “reimagining” of Charmed. while Vulture named Party of Five co-creator Chris Keyser and partner Sydney Sidner as co-writers.
“Charmed 2.0 is described as a reimaginging of the original series that centered around four sisters who discover their destiny — to battle against the forces of evil using their witchcraft,” writes THR. “The Charmed reboot comes as witches continue to be a draw on the small screen. The third season of FX anthology drama American Horror Story: Coven – which centers on a school of witches — is on track to be its biggest yet and Lifetime has found success with the freshman run of Witches of East End.”
I know most of us aren’t fans of reboots, but what do you think of this one?
