On Friday, October 25 Vulture broke the news that CBS is developing a reboot of the popular witchy drama "Charmed," which ran for eight seasons. The series followed the three Halliwell sisters, Prue, Piper and Phoebe, as they discover their powers and stop evil from taking over San Francisco.
The reboot will be a "re-imagining" of the original series and feature four sisters who have magical powers. The first series starred Holly Marie Combs, Shannon Doherty, Alyssa Milano and Rose McGowan. The series aired from 1998 to 2006 and is currently on syndication on TNT and WE. The show was also the second most binged watched series on Netflix next year.
Chris Keyser, the co-creator of "Party of Five," and Sydney Sidner are writing the project with support from CBS studios, which owns the rights. The original show was produced by Aaron Spelling and created by Constance M. Burge. The one hour drama had one hundred and seventy-eight episodes and is being brought back due to the popularity of other supernatural shows like "American Horror Story," "Once Upon a Time," and "Grimm."
