Restart mania is in full swing, with a new show that seems to have a new life every day. One of the most discussed was a reboot of the set of prequels from the set of the seventies in 1945 Charmed . According to a new report by Entertainment Weekly this idea has been discarded. However, a total reset established in the present has received a pilot order, with an emphasis on feminism. A brief synopsis has been published, but it is a little light in detail at this point.
"This ferocious, funny and feminist reboot of the original series centers on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches, beating supernatural demons, tearing down patriarchy and maintaining family ties, the work of a witch. it never ends. "
While the modern environment opens up the possibility of seeing some of the old Halliwell sisters (Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs, Shannon Doherty and Rose McGowan) appear in the new program, no official plans have been made at this time. Jessica O & # 39; Toole and Amy Rardin will write the script.
Now, if done right, this could be a good thing. While Dynasty restarts in The CW may not be the firecracker they expected, it shows as Jane The Virgin (sharing Rardin with the new Bewitched ) ] iZombie and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend tell some of the more creative and silent (and not-so-silent) progressive stories on television. If Charmed does the same, this might not be the worst idea.
