The CW Picks Up Roswell and Charmed Reboots, and The Originals Spin-Off

Are you charmed by this new lineup?

Lindsay MacDonald

The CW may have passed on Supernatural's spin-off, Wayward Sisters, but it's just picked up a whole bunch of series with some serious buzz.

The Roswell and Charmedreboots were both ordered to series, though the former has been renamed Roswell, New Mexico. This retelling of everyone's favorite alien-centered series has an illegal immigrant twist that's sure to spark discussion amongst fans of the show, both old and new. Charmed won't be undergoing a name change, though it does promise to be a fierce, funny and feminist reboot of the original.

The Originals spin-off, newly titled Legacies, also received a pickup, so prepare to see more of Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell) as she navigates her way through teenage life as a witch at the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted.

Two new series, All American and In the Dark, are also headed to The CW in the 2018-2019 season.

All American tells the story of a high school football player from South L.A. is recruited to play for Beverly Hills High, and his struggles as he integrates into a new world. In the Dark follows a flawed and irreverent blind woman, who is the only "witness" to the slaying of her drug-dealing friend. After the police dismiss her story, she sets out with her dog, Pretzel, to find the killer.

The CW will announce its fall schedule next week.
