"Charmed" had a cult following when it aired many years ago. Prue (Shannen Doherty), Piper (Holly Marie Combs), and Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) rocked the witch thing. Rumors of a reboot have been swirling for years but gained momentum last year when some of the original stars spoke out in favor of doing it.

The CW network retained the rights to the show and they are going forward with a remake. It won't be the same as the original, as it is set to take place in 1976. This would be pre-Halliwell sisters. It may pose a problem as fans want to see the original characters or some variation of them brought back with something like this.

It has not been said but none of the original actresses will likely participate in the revamping of "Charmed." They have spoken out before, bashing the idea of bringing the show back to life.

Shannen Doherty is currently fighting breast cancer and is likely in no shape to film a television show, and Holly Marie Combs and Alyssa Milano likely will pass on the endeavor.

Details for 'Charmed' are scarce

Right now, there aren't many details about the new show available. The creators of "Jane the Virgin" are currently developing it for the network. This is good news because their show is doing really well, which proves their ideas aren't going to flop immediately.

The fact that it is set in 1976 has fans puzzled because that seems like a weird idea. Either way, this new show will be completely set apart from the "Charmed" fans loved.

With no real information to go on, fans are just running with assumptions. Social media has blown up with reactions of a confirmation. For months rumors have been swirling and fans were dead set on thinking that a reboot just wasn't possible.

"Charmed" has such a cult following that bringing those fans into the mix would be beneficial for the network and ratings. If the CW can pull this one off, there could be more reboots in the future.
