Fueled by the recent success of the original Charmed television series on Netflix, CBS is looking into a reboot. It’s very early stages – the network has done nothing more than order a script for the pilot at this point, but that was enough to get Twitter abuzz as fans of the original series weighed in with their views on a remake:
So there is a charmed reboot in the works 😀 😀 we thank god

I'm not sure about how I feel about a potential Charmed reboot, I loved the show, but I have a feeling the reboot will be terrible. #Charmed

The original series aired on the WB Network for eight seasons, from 1998 to 2006. Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan, and Holly Marie Combs starred as three good witch sisters residing in modern day San Francisco.
On Friday, Milano and McGowan expressed their thoughts on the news via Twitter:
The thing about them doing a #charmed reboot is… it just… it feels like yesterday. It feels too close.

It’s no surprise that CBS is looking into a reboot of the series – what insiders call a re-imagining of the original – since earlier this year, the NPD Group rated Charmed as the second most binge-watched series on subscription video on demand services such as Netflix and Amazon Instant Video. Prison Break took the top spot.
