The supernatural drama originally ran for eight seasons from 1998 to 2006, starring Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs and Alyssa Milano, and later Rose McGowan, who discovered they were witches – the good kind – and used their powers to fight evil.

According to multiple Hollywood news reports, CW has ordered a script from the team behind US comedy Jane the Virgin for a reimagining of the popular show, which would have a completely new cast and would be set in a New England town in 1976.

The Charmed Ones of the original series shared their delight at the news on Twitter:

The last attempt to bring back Charmed was in 2013 when The CW’s sister network CBS decided not to commission a production from a script by a different writing team.
