Charmed Is Coming Back, But With A Feminist Twist

The Charmed reboot is finally on it's way, and it turns out that it is coming back with some pretty significant changes.

Although we actually found out last year that US network The CW planned to bring out a new series on the Halliwell sisters, plans for the new reboot then got postponed and our dreams were crushed.

However, our dreams are once again alive and well as the broadcaster reveals that a new pilot episode has been ordered, but with a feminist twist.

The synopsis reads: "This fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series centres on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches.

"Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch's work is never done."

Plans for the original reboot were to make a prequal set in 1976, however new plans will see the Charmed cast in modern day, which means that original cast members Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs, Shannen Doherty and Rose McGowan could be back.

It's hard to believe that no new episodes of the hit series have aired since back in 2006 and although many fans are hoping to see the return of the original sisters, it's not looking too likely.

Holly and Shannen both previously decided against a comeback, and Holly went as far as to say that revival rumours were in fact 'just rumours' in a previous Instagram post.

She wrote: "I'm sorry to say that all the reboot rumors are just that.... rumors. But here's #tbt to our wood nymph days. In our defense it was really hot so we wanted to wear the least amount of clothes possible. Really hot. That's my story and still sticking to it. Still. #charmed [sic]."

However, the post was written back in July and looks as though things have changed since then. Either that, or there's going to be an entirely new cast.
