'Charmed' Rebooted by CBS With Script Commitment


'Party of Five' co-creator Chris Keyser will write the script along with Sydney Sidner for the remake project.

"Charmed" is on track to being brought back to television, seven years after ending its eight-season run in 2006. Vulture reports that CBS has given a script commitment to reboot the popular long-running series, which was originally broadcast on The WB.

Chris Keyser, the co-creator of "Party of Five", will be collaborating with Sydney Sidner to write script for the pilot. The new story will be a remaining of the original series that revolved around four Halliwell sisters using their witchcrafts to battle the evil.

The original series was led by Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs and Alyssa Milano, and Rose McGowan. The remake will join similarly witch/supernatural-themed series like "Witches of East End" and "American Horror Story: Coven" among others.

Some of the original cast didn't seem to like the idea of the reboot project. Milano recently tweeted, "The thing about them doing a #charmed reboot is... it just... it feels like yesterday. It feels too close." McGowan cryptically wrote, "They really are running out of ideas in Hollywood. lame lame lame lamertons."
