Everything in Hollywood gets rebooted eventually. 

ABC has just announced that they have ordered a pilot for a Bewitched reboot from Black-ish Creator Kenya Barris. 

The Premise of the show would be similar to the original series but a modern twist. The new take on the show is described as:

“Samantha, a black hard working, single mom, who happens to be a witch, marries Darren, a white mortal who happens to be a bit of a slacker. They struggle to navigate their differences as she discovers that even when a black girl is literally magic, she’s still not as powerful as a decently tall white man with a full head of hair in America.”

Barris will executive produce the pilot episode with writing partner Yamara Taylor. 

A Bewitched reboot has been the in the works for a while now. CBS planned on making a Bewitched reboot back in 2011 but fell through, NBC tried again in 2014 as a sequel series but never got couldn't get the show off the ground.
