Is the Charmed reboot happening?

We could be getting a prequel and a revival!

By TV Week team
Rumours of a Charmed reboot have been swirling around for some time, but much to our dismay, nothing has been confirmed.
However, it has been reported that American network The CW are still in talks to bring back the supernatural series.
This news is promising considering the network recently halted their plans to go forward with a Charmed prequel.
The pilot for the prequel was written by Jane The Virgin writers Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin, with JTV’s Jennie Snyder Urman brought on board as executive producer.
But the first episode wasn’t quite what The CW had in mind, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Jennie wasn’t able to devote enough time to the new series as she was working on Jane The Virgin, but she is said to be throwing herself fully into the project for the coming year.
Hopefully this means the Charmed prequel will be on our screens soon!
The original sisters of Charmed - Holly Marie Combs, Shannen Doherty and Alyssa Milano. Shannen's character was killed off and replaced by Rose McGowan.
As for the original Charmed remake, last month Holly Marie Combs disappointed fans when she came out to say that the rumours of a reboot were just rumours.

This was a change of tune for Holly, who only two months ago said she would be interested in a reboot.
“At this point, I can almost never see myself saying no to a Charmed reunion, because it’s so important to so many people I’ve already met personally,” Holly told Philly.com.
Fans were delighted when Holly announced her interest in reprising her role as a witch during an appearance at the Wizard World 2017 in Philadelphia.

Holly also added that she remains close with her co-stars Alyssa Milano and Rose McGowan.
“I am still friends with them,” Holly said.
“It’s funny. I always say you go through these stages of life, when, you know, we acted like sisters. We got along. We agreed. Sometimes we didn’t agree. We fought. We went to weddings.
“It was definitely like a real family (and) we were sort of bonded in that way. I think that bond is strengthened by how meaningful the show has been to so many people (and how) it just goes on in its own way.”
Both Rose McGowan and Alyssa Milano added fuel to the fire when they also posted Charmed related posts on Instagram at the beginning of June.

Fingers crossed that a Charmed reboot will gain enough momentum to make it to our screens!
