We were talking about maybe getting Buffy The Vampire Slayer back on our screens a few days ago and now it looks like it’s not Buffy but Charmed that’s coming back.

Yes, The CW, the channel behind Arrow, Flash, Supergirl and Legends Of Tomorrow, is looking to bring the show about a family of witches back to our screens under the watchful eye of Jane the Virgin creator Jennie Urman.

While very little is known about the new series, we can pretty much say it’s unlikely the original stars Shannen Doherty,  Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs, and Rose McGowan will be back – or if they are we doubt it’ll be much more than a cameo as the one thing we do know is that the new show will be set in 1976.

The original series ran from 1998 to 2006, so it’s a safe bet this is a prequel series or ‘reimagining’.

Any Charmed fans here? Are you looking forward to the return of the show?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
