The CW network is currently stock full of supernatural shows. But the one that interested me most is the remake of an old favorite, Charmed. The original tells a story of three sisters discovering they’re the most powerful witches of all time. They lead normal lives while at the same time fighting of demons and supernatural creatures.
I’m excited to compare this new series to the old when it premieres October 14th right after the premiere of Supergirl.
