Zenescope to Debut Season 10 of 'Charmed' Comic Book This Fall

"Charmed" fans, be prepared to be bewitched with the announcement that Zenescope Entertainment and CBS Consumer Products are bringing the series back to comic book and graphic novel formats this Fall. Zenescope is responsible for the publication of the first 24 issues of "Charmed" from June 2010 through September 2012.

The Constance M. Burge-created TV series aired from 1998 through 2006 and starred Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan and Shannen Doherty. The TV show may have ended in 2006 but it found a new life as original comics when Zenescope began publishing 'Season 9' four years ago. The press release revealed that Zenescope "...will release a brand new 'Season 10' in an on-going monthly comic book series with trade paperback collections released twice each year."

Ralph Tedesco, Zenescope Editor-in-Chief said, “I’m so glad to announce this news. '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.”

When exactly can we expect this? According to the release, "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."
