The WB/The CW
Move on over, Murder, She Wrote. A new reboot is in the works. Just a day after news hit that NBC is bringing back everyone's favorite amateur sleuth (only this time starring Octavia Spencer), Vulture learned that CBS is looking to re-imagine Charmed.
Not much is set in stone, but what we do know is that Chris Keyser (Party of Five co-creator) and partner Sydney Sidner are penning the new version of the original WB drama that followed a sisterhood of witches who use their powers to battle against the forces of evil. CBS has only ordered a script for a pilot, and it has not promised to film anything as of yet.
Considering that the horror/fantasy/mystical genre is killing it in primetime right now, it makes sense that a show about butt-kicking sister witches would make a comeback (although, we're a little confused why it's happening so soon after the show ended).
The original show ran for eight seasons and 178 episodes, and starred Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan, Holly Marie Combs, and Shannen Doherty.
Power of Three, unite!
The Black Swan star will take the helm of Meridian Hills alongside Party of Five creator Chris Keyser, and Sydney Sidner, who is writing the series.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will focus on an American housewife in the 1970s who becomes involved in the women's liberation movement.
Reports suggest Kunis will not star in the show.
