CW Network To Reboot Alyssa Milano's 'Charmed'

"Charmed" is returning to TV!

O'Toole and Rardin will also executive produce in addition to penning the script. Rounding out the EP roster are Ben Silverman and Brad Silberling, the latter of whom will direct the pilot if the show gets to that stage.

Jane the Virgin showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman and the CW show's writers, Jessica O'Toole and Amy Rardin, are behind the reboot of the show, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

But expect a complete revamp of the story you know and love as this will be a "prequel-ish" to the original series. The project is described as a "reimagining" of the original Charmed. There are no fans like you. Set in a small New England town in 1976, the series features a new trio of witches - Annie, Tina and (curiously) Paige - none of whom are related by blood.

All the best TV shows we miss from the 1990s to serve you a bit of warming nostalgia.

Hours after the announcement, actresses Holly Marie Combs and Alyssa Millano, Piper and Phoebe Halliwell sisters in the original series, reacted via their Twitter accounts. "The thing about them doing a #charmed reboot is... it just... it feels like yesterday", Milano said at the time.

Rose McGowan agreed with Alyssa Milano's sentiment, and was a little more brash in her assertion of the idea. "It seems like that's going to happen any second". (Charmed was on the air from 1998 to 2006.) It's not yet clear how the reboot will be connected to the original Charmed, but so far, they've assembled a pretty stellar team to make the show as magical as possible.
