The CW orders Charmed reboot pilot and picks up new supernatural drama Dead Inside

February 7th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Well, it looks like the Witches are back as The CW confirm they are taking the Charmed reboot to pilot.

Yup, the new series will be reimagined by Jane The Virgin creator Jennie Urman and will be a “fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series.”

Once more, the series will focus on the Charmed sisters but the adventure will find them at college this time and therefore will be, presumably, more teen-drama like. We’re hearing that it may be set in the 1970s but we can’t confirm or deny that.

Along with Charmed, The CW is also working on an original series called Dead Inside and “would follow an underachieving beat cop who, after surviving an explosion that killed her hotshot detective big brother, starts seeing his ghost, flipping their sibling dynamic on its head and allowing her to truly live her life for the first time. They work together to help crime victims both living and dead, and figure out the unfinished business keeping his spirit on Earth,” according to Variety.

It will be produce by Scrubs and Spin City’s Bill Lawrence and written by NBC’s Dracula writer Katie Lovejoy.


Looks like The CW plans on bringing the entertainment and keeping it all delightfully nerdy.

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….
