    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.

    Details On “Charmed” Reboot Characters

    Casting breakdowns for the upcoming reboot of the TV series “Charmed” have been released at TV Line, showcasing the new takes on the three witch sisters at the heart of the series – Macy, Mel, and Madison Pruitt.

    Macy is a witty, intense science nerd in her late 20s with a Ph.D. in quantum physics and the power of telekinesis. Mel Pruitt is a mid-20s strong-willed feminist and lesbian who feels deeply and pushes others away in the wake of a tragic accident – she also can freeze time.

    Finally, there’s Madison, an athletic 18-year-old college student pledging a sorority and has the power of telepathy. Casting is also underway for Harry, their advisor, along with Macy’s documentary filmmaker-boyfriend Gavin and Madison’s “sensitive” ex-beau Brian.

    Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin penned the reboot and will executive produce alongside Jennie Urman, Brad Silberling and Ben Silverman.

    As someone who enjoyed the original series of Charmed, I can't work up any enthusiasm for this.

    Charmed
    Rupert Evans (“Hellboy,” “The Man in the High Castle”) has joined The CW’s “Charmed” reboot pilot in the series-regular role of Harry, a handsome professor and raconteur with an infuriating charm and a mysterious interest in the three witch sisters – he’s their Whitelighter. Sarah Jeffery and Melonie Diaz co-star in the series, while “Jane the Virgin” writers Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin will pen the pilot.

    As someone who never watched the original series, I also can't work up any enthusiasm for this.
