    Well, yeah, I don't want them to reboot anything good. I'd be pissed as hell if they tried to reboot Firefly, for example. Let them keep making garbage; I don't care.

    You don't reboot Firefly, you have another crew on another ship, in the same universe. That way the original cast can guest star, or you bring the original cast back and do a season 2.

    The other way I'd accept Firefly, Buffy, or Angel is if they did Audio Dramas like Doctor Who from Big Finish.

    The show that just wouldn't & still won't die. Power Ranger baddies were more threatening than the garbage that got shoveled into Charmed.

    My fiancée loves charmed and is on her fourth run of watching it on Netflix since she moved in three years ago.


    Even she thinks this is a horrible idea, and wants a continuation, not a reboot. :lol

    Charmed was good up until season five (four wasn't as good has 1-3, but it finished the main overarching plot and still had Cole, so) and then they just lost the plot.... Don't give me that look, I started watching because I have a huge crush on Alyssa Milano and ended up actually liking the show.

    I can't judge you, I only started watching it because there was an episode where Alyssa Milano was a topless mermaid. :confused2

    Actually you do, cause it desperately needs a reboot. After Serenity set the whole thing on fire then attempted to put it out by pissing on it.

    My dad used to have that ep saved on DVR. Gotta admit, that was the best part of the ep, & pretty much the sole selling point of the show for a lot of people.

    I just remember the villains getting their asses kicked hard every episode & then cackling about it, saying, "just as we planned!!!"

    You planned to get your asses kicked? Cuz it's all part of the plan to get the charmed ones to drop their guard, right? Suuuuure.

    I so vaguely remember this show as something my mom and/or sister watched.

    Really odd that of all things, this gets a reboot.

    Isn't this show a bit too new? I watched a few episodes here and there. Was not bad. But nowhere near as good as Supernatural or Buffy.

    Anyway... still have to watch it some day.

    So yeah this is happening this year. Charmed (2018 TV series) - Wikipedia
    I cannot wait for Obscurus Lupa to cover this, it promises to be just as big of a trainwreck as the original was. She recently reviewed the season 9 comics, and said would follow and review the show as well.
    And as a Hungarian, I do have to laugh at how CW thought Vera was a family name. (It is a surname, the nickname of Veronica). Weird that they changed the setting, the names of the three witches (they now all begin with M instead of P) and even Leo is called Harry now. Plus they are all in college with their whitelighter a professor, so it seems they are trying to make it more like Buffy?

    EDIT: LOL, of course that the orginals would be up in arms against the reboot. Imagine if you read that William Shatner or Patrick Stewart would be doing the same thing every time a new Trek show came out...
    LOOOL it seems she lives in some weird dream world if she doesn't understand that YES, she is too old to play the role. This is like Adam West trying to get Burton to make him Batman again.
    Holly Marie Combs slams 'Charmed' reboot for ageing out its original stars

    It was a show no man could watch for long period of times, trust me. I had a colleague who watched it because his mom and girlfriend liked it, and it burned itself into his mind.
    I recommend you check out Obscurus Lupa's review of the series, it is fascinating to watch as what starts out as a magical comedy/romance Buffy ripoff show for women slowly turns into the vanity project of the main starts (who are also producers) and as the characters turn into terrible unlikeable people only interested in themselves. Plus the review is really really funny. A friend and I rewatch it every few years, and I probably will rewatch it again in preparation for the new show. :)
