ZENESCOPE AND CBS BRING BACK CHARMED

Charmed.2.Horn

Zenescope Entertainment and CBS Consumer Products are bringing the fan-favorite series CHARMED back to comic book and graphic novel formats this Fall. Zenescope published the first 24 issues of the bestselling series from June 2010 through September 2012.

Constance M. Burge created the popular TV series, which starred Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan and Shannen Doherty. Charmed aired from 1998 through 2006, and found a new life as original comics when Zenescope began publishing “Season 9” four years ago. Now, Zenescope will release a brand new “Season 10” in an on-going monthly comic book series with trade paperback collections released twice each year.
“I’m so glad to announce this news.” said Zenescope Editor-in-Chief, Ralph Tedesco.

“Charmed fans are an extremely rabid and loyal group. They write us all the time, asking about Season 10 since it’s been almost two years since the last issue was released. We’re happy to let them all know that it’s been worth the wait — we’re coming back with a brand new arc and a ton of surprises that we feel will absolutely satisfy hardcore Charmed fans, while also appealing to new readers.”

The first issue of Season 10 will debut at New York Comic Con the weekend of October 9, 2014. Original comic book series writer Paul Ruditis will edit the series and Zenescope writer Pat Shand (Angel, Robyn Hood) takes the helm penning the new arc. The art team will be announced next month.

Regarding Ms. Doherty’s likeness

Here was Zenescope’s official statement on the question of using Shannon Doherty’s likeness in the Charmed comic.

“Unfortunately Ms. Doherty has declined to be involved in the comic version of Charmed. This includes the use of her likeness. We had hoped that she would allow us to use her image and that we would be able to bring her into the Charmed comic book exactly as she was in the show but at this point that has become impossible. While Ms. Doherty’s likeness will not be used for the character we are still very excited about the direction we are going with Prue and we hope that fans of Charmed will feel the same way.”

-Ralph Tedesco, Editor in Chief
