Charmed (1998–2006) is the story of the lives of three sisters who were born with the innate powers of the Charmed ones, a trio of powerful witches capable of stopping time, premonition, and astral projection. One of the series born from the female-driven influence Buffy the Vampire Slayer brought to mainstream television, Charmed has gone on to be one of the most successful fantasy shows on the air, catapulting the careers of popular actors such as Shannen Doherty and Julian McMahon.
Charmed was the first official casuality of The WB and UPN merge into The CW; although Charmed had enjoyed strong ratings and achieved a ratings revival in its later seasons, it had dropped heavily in the Nielsen Ratings due to the popularity of Desperate Housewives and as such no longer was the ratings success it once was, prompting The WB to drop it from the merged network's future lineup.
Charmed premiered in 1998 on The WB network and it's finale aired in May 2006. The show is about three sisters who discover that they are the most powerful witches that ever existed on Earth. At the start of the series Prue (Shannen Doherty), Piper (Holly Marie Combs) and Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) discover that they are witches from a powerful lineage and that they are supposed to do good to help the world. At the end of season 3, Prue is killed by a demon and Piper and Phoebe discover that they had a long lost sister from an affair their mother had with Wightlighter. The show was among The WB's most popular as it had the highest premiere episode ratings on the network just until Smallville broke the record in 2001.
As of October 2013, CBS is looking into options of rebooting Charmed.
