“Charmed Reboot Get Pilot The CW has ordered a reboot of the “Charmed” franchise. The original followed three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches. The project was originally in development at the network last year but was rolled into this year and the previous 1970s setting was scrapped in favour of a contemporary one. The original ran for eight seasons on the WB and starred Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs, and Rose McGowan. “Jane the Virgin” creator Jennie Urman will executive produce along with Brad Silberling, Jessica O’Toole, Ben Silverman, and Amy Rardin. Silberling will direct.
