For some fans of the original show, this isn’t the best news to receive. Charmed ran for eight seasons on The WB, which later became The CW, from 1998 to 2006. Since the show’s last episode was in 2006, many fans believe it is not old enough to warrant a reboot.

Catch up

Charmed follows the Halliwell sisters Prue, Piper, and Phoebe. They are known as “The Charmed Ones.” Their birth has been foretold through a prophecy stating that three sisters would be the most powerful good witches to ever exist and that it would be up to them to save the world.

What’s happened recently with Charmed

The CW has already cast the roles of the sisters for the reboot.

This reboot is looking to be one of the most anticipated shows on The CW. There are, however, pros and cons to any reboot.

Much is still not known about the show’s plot but, I am cautiously excited. Reboots have a tendency to not show what was promised but, then again, these are new characters with new stories to tell. As a Charmed fan, I am optimistic about this reboot and hopefully this article will persuade you to give it a chance.
