Los Angeles: Supernatural series `Charmed` that starred Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano and Shannen Doherty as the three sister-witches, is set to get rebooted by CBS.

The reboot is in its early stages with just a script deal, and has `Party of Five` co-creator Chris Keyser and Sydney Sidner as co-writers of the show, reported E!Online.

`Charmed`, which was created by Constance M Burge, centred around three sister-witches, who use their powers to battle the forces of evil. Rose McGowan joined the show after some seasons as the fourth sister following the exit of Doherty.
The show ran on the WB from 1998 till 2006.

The reboot is seen as re-imagining of the original series revolving around four sisters, who discover their destiny ? to battle against the forces of evil using their witchcraft.

"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. People looked for it, people searched it out and watched those episode over and over," Milano said about the reboot.
