Of all the reboot and revival news of fan favorite films and series from the ’90s and 2000s, this one is one of the biggest! According to multiple sources, including Entertainment Weekly, The CW has confirmed that they are in the process of developing a new version of the beloved series that ran from 1998-2006. The reports indicate that the new version of the show will be different, however, because it is a “reimagining” of the series and will not be set in present day like the original series, and will instead take place in 1976.
The writing team behind Jane the Virgin which includes Jessica O’Toole, Amy Rardin and Jennie Synder Urman are currently working on a script, and casting has not yet begun, but it seems unlikely that any of the original stars including Alyssa Milano, Shannen Doherty, Rose McGown or Holly Marie Combs would be involved.
Fans will remember that the series and the Halliwell sisters underwent a shakeup when Doherty, who portrayed the eldest sister Prue, was killed off, and Rose McGowan was brought in as their half-sister Paige Matthews.
