“Charmed” reboot gets CW pilot order

The Charmed reboot has added an intriguing new storyline.

After announcing the Charmed reboot lsat year as a prequel series to the 1998 original, CW has unveiled interesting details about the upcoming project.

CW has released an official description of the Charmed reboot: “This fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series centers on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches. Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done.”

So apparently now, the reboot is about a trio of sibling witches but with a feminist twist. The network also dropped the prequel idea and the reboot will be set in present day. This sets the reboot up for the possibility of appearances by the original cast members.

Penning the script are writers Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin.
