CW Officially Orders Pilot for ‘Charmed’ Reboot

CW Officially Orders Pilot for ‘Charmed’ Reboot

Well, consider a pilot officially in the works for the new ‘Charmed.’

Not much is known about the reboot besides that it’s ‘feminist.’  Uh… did they not see the original series?  It was way before its time.

Anyways, a couple more things did get changed around for the story to take place in current times.  Yeah, that 70’s prequel spinoff series got shelved if you were wondering.  As for who’s writing the pilot, it’s Writers Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin (from Jane the Virgin.)

Here’s what the CW officially has to say about their new series:

“This fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series centers on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches. Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done.”

This reboot is going in so many directions.  But, as someone who grew up watching Charmed and mourned when Pru was killed off… I’ll give this reboot a shot.  Will you?
