Without any of the original cast members.
Yes, Piper. It’s possible. But I sure as hell will not be watching this travesty…this hackjob…this egregious miscarriage of justice! I rebuke this in the name of
Jesus the Source.
"Charmed" aired on the WB from 1998 to 2006 and starred Milano, McGowan, Holly Marie Combs and Shannen Doherty (for three seasons) as witchy sisters who work to protect humanity from various nasty magical threats, including demons. The eight-season run was one of the WB’s longest-lived TV shows and notable for being the rare network series with an all-female lead cast.
With the show’s continued popularity even after its ending, it’s no surprise that someone would aim to bring it back to the air. But a reboot means younger (cheaper) talent, with no starring place for the show’s original witches. Something that hasn’t sat well with the first set of Halliwell sisters.
You know why the show lived on after Prue died? Because they didn’t replace her. They didn’t try to act like she didn’t exist. They just…expanded the family. But this isn’t an expansion, this is a do-over while the original girls are still on television! How do you remake a show when Rose McGowan and Alyssa Milano (who still pretty much look just like they did 10 years ago) are currently on TV at the same time? I don’t even understand how this works.
I am not here for anything Charmed-related unless it picks up at Season 9. Period. That’s all I’m here for.
Actually, no, I’m lying. Because I am also here for some bad-ass spell that brings Prue back to life so all 4 of them can be on the show at the same time. I am also here for that.
To be honest, I am The Most Here For That. That is what I truly want, but I will settle for a movie or a mini-series or even the comic they have going on, as long as it continues the story.
Please explain to me how they’re going to throw three totally different “charmed” sisters into the universe while the other three are still alive? Are they supposed to have died and these chicks are taking their place? Because I am most definitely not here for that.
This got way longer than I intended, but halfway through I got all up in my feelings because I really loved Charmed, y’all. I can’t believe they are actually trying to do a re-boot of that show. I hope this mess gets canceled halfway through the pilot episode. This is awful.
I just also realized there will be no Julian McMahon in the new show either and I am devastated. DEVASTATED.
Addendum: I might possibly in some way be here for this if Wyatt and Chris are the new Charmed Brothers or something, because I just remembered how hot Drew Fuller was as Chris.
……….right. Yeah. You can be on my television again. I will accept that.
