CW's Charmed

After years and years of speculation, it looks like we're finally getting that Charmed reboot after all.

Ah, this explains why Sabrina is headed for Netflix even though it's likely tied to Riverdale. Having two alternate witch-based shows on the same network is a little much, especially if they're not connected.

"The original version of the reboot was set in the 1970’s but this new version will take place in the present day."

Oh thank god, they ditched the period piece shit. Looking forward to it now.

Had no idea the original even took place in the 70's. Granted, I didn't watch the show religiously, but it's weird I never caught on to that lol.

No the original show was modern 90s. The first version of the reboot had been planned as 70s. Now the reboot's planned as present day.

It didn't take place in the 70s. The reboot was supposed to take place in the 70s when it was developed last year.

I watched a lot of episodes of Charmed as reruns on daytime tv and I'm pretty stoked for this reboot.

Also considering Supernatural shows no signs of stopping (even if we begged for them to stop, which people actually have done) I would like a crossover between the two.

Wasn’t there also a version which was supposed to be three guys? Though I do wonder, will this be a reboot in the true sense of the word, or maybe even a sequel to the original?

Finally some sense! After the furious backlash to the weird 70s non-connected idea they are at least doing a modern day reboot and embracing the feminist angle of the show.

If the cast reaction is anything to go by however, this is still a fresh reboot. They won't be involved at all.

“Some sense”? it went from a weird 70s non-connected idea to a weird present day non-connected idea.

I’d much rather take a spin-off than a reboot. The world has 8 seasons. It’s barely been off the air.

Hence the 'some sense' comment, lol. We still have no idea if these will be the actual Halliwell sisters or just some other group of witches. Until that is clear we won't know just how connected or not this new version of the Reboot might be.

I was at the gym earlier and an episode of Charmed was playing. Then I get on here and see this. Neat.

I found it funny how the article has a picture with the original three, Prue (Shannen Doherty), Piper (Holly Marie Combs) and Phoebe (Alyssa Milano). But the article only mentions Holly, Alyssa, and Rose McGowen by name as the sisters.

Anyways, when I first saw this topic pop up I was like, "Wait, didn't we have a topic about this already with it set in the past and etc etc?" But it makes sense now, I'm glad they're at least embracing a modern retelling instead of period piece. Hopefully this'll turn out well, I always enjoyed Charmed even though it did feel like it was dragging some in the last couple seasons.

Hopefully this is better than the original show. Cole was the best thing about Charmed.

Once he was gone the storylines became uttetly ridiculous. It became a game of 'what silly costume can we get the actors in this week?'

Glad to see I'm not the only one that felt that way. I loved the show and it's the reason I'm always interested in what Julian McMahon stars in. (I'm still not convinced he was a bad choice for Dr. Doom.) But I'd be lying if I said that it was a quality written show. Once they got past the Cole and Leo plot's it got hard to watch.

In a weird way, I kinda hope they have one of the sisters be a brother this time around.
