CBS took over Paramount's TV titles earlier this year, and that's been great news for fans that want to see extras. Paramount released most of their sets without any bonus materials, while CBS has created loads of featurettes and included commentaries for shows like CSI
and The Amazing Race
. Now Charmed
will get the CBS treatment on season 8, which should be out around Christmas (it won't be announced for awhile, so please don't ask).
Fans thought the mention of season 8 having extras was be a cruel April Fool's joke when TheCharmedOnes.com posted the news on Saturday, but we had heard rumblings late last week as well. We checked with Brad Kern and he confirmed the news that Charmed
will have extras on the eighth season. Obviously CBS got the message that fans wanted to see extras on their sets; TheCharmedOnes.com started a campaign, and we made a few well-placed calls. Brad Kern was also very
clear that he wanted extras on the set when we interviewed
him a few months ago.
Season 8 is still many months away, but at least you know there will be some bonus material on the set.
: Seasons 6 and 7 haven't been announced, and we don't know when they'll be announced (so please don't ask). Extras will only be on season 8.
