The CW's Charmed reboot has just been canceled after four seasons. When it was first released back in 2018,

fans of the original series were up in arms about how the show was different from its '90s counterpart.

. However, while it does take certain liberties and makes choices that take it further away from its predecessor,

it still had certain elements to it that drew from the original source material while allowing it to stand on its own.

When the original Charmed was first released in 1998, it was the embodiment of the “girl power” movement at the time.

There has always been controversy around whether classic shows and movies should be rebooted, with the latest discussions surrounding the vampire series, True Blood.

Overall, the reboot sticks to the original show’s premise of sisterhood and the power of women, but challenges itself to be different.

This message of women having the power to achieve anything parallels that of another supernatural show that was released around the same time as the original, Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
