Even though Charmed has now been rebooted 20 years after its premiere with The CW’s hit series of the same name and it’s still aired on television in regular syndication, it’s often one of the ’90s most underrated series. Sure, Charmed has its strong fan base (some of who expressed their dissent of the reboot), but it’s not as widely championed as other series to originate from peak-era The WB. Luckily, all eight seasons of the original series are streaming on Netflix for a nostalgic binge.

Charmed premiered in 1998 and became one of The WB’s highest-rated series. Not to mention, the series was the longest-running hour-long show featuring female leads before Desperate Housewives took over the title. But it’s not hard to see why so many fans fell in love with Charmed and flocked to it when the series became available on streaming services. The series follows three sisters who are also witches known as the Charmed Ones. When they combine their individual powers, they are the strongest witches of all time, which is a tough secret to keep.

Following its eight-season run, Charmed’s impact continued to be felt on the small screen, as more and more series centered on witches began to pop up, though none of them were able to scratch the surface of Charmed’s success. However, now the story of the Charmed Ones has returned in a reboot, which you can also stream on Netflix. Before you dip into the new take on the beloved classic, you can settle in for a nice, long binge of Charmed and relive every magical moment.
