Charmed reboot in the works
Supernatural drama Charmed to be 'reimagined' by CBS...
We really hope that someone is keeping tabs on all these reboots, remakes and re-whatnots, (though it probably ought to be us). CBS has ordered a script that would reboot witchcraft series Charmed.
We say ‘reboot’, but the project is being officially described as a ‘reimagining’, though it’s not yet clear what that distinction will mean in practical terms.
The original series, which broadcast its finale as recently as 2006, centred on the Halliwell sisters, also known as the Charmed Ones, who used their powers of witchcraft to protect people from demons and warlocks.
If it makes it to screen, the show will emerge into a crowded field of witchcraft-based TV shows. In addition to Coven, the latest edition of American Horror Story, Lifetime has recently debuted Witches of East End and Star Trek producer Brannon Braga has been given the green light for a full series of seventeenth century drama, Salem.
