‘Charmed’ Reboot Being Preppped On The CW With ‘Jane The Virgin’ Showrunner

The long-rumored “Charmed” reboot is going to happen. The CW has reportedly enlisted “Jane the Virgin” showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman to take charge of the series.

But none of the original actors, such as Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano or Rose McGowan, are going to be in the rebooted series. The new show will be set in the 70s and will likely not involged the Halliwell sisters.

According to TV Line, the “Charmed” reboot’s story will have three lead characters as well. It looks like, however, that they won’t be related:

Tina: African American. Whip-smart, Tina is one dissertation (and one dissertation advisor) away from a PhD. She can be reserved, even standoffish, in uncomfortable situations, but she picks up on
everything and she’s definitely making quick, accurate judgments about you.

Paige: Caucasian Cheerful, curvy, wholesome and as all-American as the apple pie she can’t wait to serve to the husband she has yet to marry. Paige’s main goal in life is to marry a rich doctor and be a wife and mother.

Annie: Caucasian. Intense, smart, and quick to anger. She dresses neutrally, though she could give two s–ts if you like her outfit, so stop wondering what “neutral” means. But under that tough façade, well… there is a fragility. A person desperate to be loved, and love.

The Hollywood Reporter says that CBS originally wanted to do the reboot three years ago with the original stars but they didn’t jump on board the project. “Charmed” was created by Constance M. Burge and Aaron Spelling. It aired on The WB (now The CW) from 1998-2006.
