Charmed Prequel in the Works at The CW?

at .  Updated at .

Have you been holding out hope for Charmed to return in some form ever since it went off the air in 2006?

Given the amount of shows that have returned from the dead over the last few years, it was pretty much a sure thing that there would be another chapter in the franchise.

That chapter appears to be coming in form of a prequel set in 1976, but where would this new series be set? 

It would be set in New England, which we could actually get on board with. 

As much as it would have been great to see what went down for the witches in that time period in San Francisco, a quieter setting would be better.

It's unclear at this stage whether the witches would have any relation to the Halliwell sisters, or if it would be a new family line altogether. 

The original Charmed ran for eight seasons and is still talked about by fans to this day.

It boasted a cast that included Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan, Shannen Doherty and even Kaley Cuoco.

The stars have went on to a lot of successful projects, but could any of them really return as a different character?

It is without a doubt one of the best drama series to focus on witches. 

The creative team behind Jane The Virgin are on tap to make the prequel. That's actually a pretty good thing. 

Jane the Virgin is an award winning series that has been a thrilling addition to The CW's line-up over the past three seasons.

It was previously announced that a reboot of the series was in the works at CBS with no involvement from the original cast. 

To date, nothing has materialized, and it probably never will if this prequel edition of the series goes ahead at The CW. 

The CW appears to be looking at old series for success this development season, with a new edition of Dynasty also announced to be in the works. 

The channel has become notorious for their Superhero line-up, so maybe they are looking to add these shows to try and reel in an older audience. 

It's not like the superhero shows will work forever. 

Either way, we're intrigued and we will keep you up to speed on any updates about this potential series. 

What do you think of the potential of a new addition to the series?
