"Charmed" is getting rebooted on the CW after its successful run for 8 years on the broadcast network.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the network has ordered a pilot script for the rebooted version of "Charmed," which will be a reimagined prequel of the original series set in a small town in New England in 1976. The new project hails from the team who created the hit TV series, "Jane the Virgin." Its creator, Jennie Snyder Urman will co-write the script with co-executive producers Jessica O'Toole and Amy Rardin.
The original series, which starred Alyssa Milano, Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs and Rose McGowen, followed a trio of sisters who used witchcraft to fight the evil forces in their town.
The "Charmed" reboot, on the other hand, will feature a new trio of witches but they will not be blood-related. In a report from TV Line, the unofficial character descriptions of the yet to be cast main characters named Tina, Paige and Annie have been released.
Read their full character descriptions below:
Tina - African American. Whip-smart, Tina is one dissertation (and one dissertation advisor) away from a PhD. She can be reserved, even standoffish, in uncomfortable situations, but she picks up on everything and she's definitely making quick, accurate judgments about you.
Paige - Caucasian Cheerful, curvy, wholesome and as all-American as the apple pie she can't wait to serve to the husband she has yet to marry. Paige's main goal in life is to marry a rich doctor and be a wife and mother.
Annie -Caucasian. Intense, smart, and quick to anger. She dresses neutrally, though she could give two s-ts if you like her outfit, so stop wondering what "neutral" means. But under that tough façade, well... there is a fragility. A person desperate to be loved, and love.
The CW has yet to announce the official premiere date for the reboot of Charmed.
