Charmed, the 1998 hit TV-show about three sisters who are also witches, will be revived by CBS, Vulture revealed on Oct. 25.

The TV network will work on a complete re-imagining of the show, with Party of Five co-creator Chris Keyser and partner Sydney Sidner co-writing the project. The original show was created by Aaron Spelling for Warner Bros. CBS, which has all the rights to Spelling's work will be producing the show with the Tannenbaum Company. But the network has only ordered a script for the pilot as of now.

The show, which wrapped in 2006, used to air on Warner Bros.' now defunct television channel and ran for eight seasons with 178 episodes. The main characters of the show were portrayed by Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan, Holly Marie Combs, and Shannen Doherty.

In an interview with E! Online, Milano, who currently stars on Mistresses about Charmed and the new trend of witches, demons and fantastical themed shows on the television.

"I think really it's due to the success of Charmed and the fact that it had so much success even after it was done, meaning that people looked for it, people searched it out and watched those episode over and over," she said. "The Charmed fans are the greatest fans on the planet and the most loyal fans on the planet. I feel like networks are trying to replicate that." 

The publication also caught up with Combs, who stars on Pretty Little Liars, about the "legacy" of Charmed and if it paved the way for these kinds of shows on television today. "I hope that it did. I'm not sure that it did, but I hope that we did and I'm glad that we left some sort of a legacy and I'm glad that people still remember it," she said.
