Fans have flooded the post with excitement, with many already asking when it will hit screens.

The comedy followed two orphaned witch sisters, Sally and Gillian Owens, played respectively by Bullock and Kidman, who live with their aunts, Frances (Stockard Channing) and Jet (Dianne Wiest).

Together, the sisters battle a family curse that threatens to prevent them finding love.

The curse results in the sisters killing Gillian’s abusive ex-boyfriend (ER star Goran Višnjić), but, as witches, they turn to forbidden black magic to bring him back from the dead. 

Director, writer and producer, Akiva Goldsman, known for Batman & Robin and A Beautiful Mind on the big screen, and more recently for TV’s Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, will write the screenplay for Practical Magic 2. 

HBO Max tried to bring The Rules of Magic, another Hoffman novel, to life but it never got off the ground.
