The Charmed reboot will be ‘fierce’ and ‘feminist’

We’re not sure how this differs from the original but OK

Charmed is definitely coming back and more details have been released about the hotly anticipated reboot.

The CW will play host to the update of the 1998 classic, but in order to make the Halliwell sisters more relatable, writers have injected modern themes – namely feminism.

An official synopsis of the show 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.”

For those of you who thought the show was already “fierce, funny and feminist”, yeah same.

This time last year, it was announced that writers from Jane the Virgin would embark “self-contained, self-sustaining” reboot, without involvement from original stars Shannen Doherty, Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs or Rose McGowan.

Off the back of the Stranger Things mania, the network first announced that the reimagining of the series would be set in 1976 for a retro twist.

There’s no word yet on an official air date, but keep your eyes peeled.
