Following the tradition of Fuller House, The X-Files, Xena, 24, and the recently announced, Gilmore Girls and Cruel Intentions, it appears another cult/fan favorite phenomenon from the late-'90s is heading out for another shot at television glory! And it comes direct from the mouth of one of the show's main stars!
The show - I don't know if you remember it or not - was called Charmed. It starred Holly Marie Combs, Shannen Doherty, Rose McGowan, and Alyssa Milano. It ran from 1998-2006 and has since garnered an even stronger fan following with Dark Horse comics, known for their Buffy The Vampire Slayer continuations, publishing stories based on the acclaimed series, following the events after the series finale.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight recently, Milano - who portrayed Phoebe Halliwell on the series - let it slip that the entire cast was more than ready for their long overdue reunion.
We are all open for [a Charmed reunion]! It seems like that’s going to happen any second. I just feel like with all these reunions, and we still have such a cult following, that I feel like someone’s going to put that together at some point, and we’re all totally on board for that!"
The show's other main stars, Rose McGowan, Shannen Doherty, and Holly Marie Combs have all expressed in the past their desire to film a TV reboot of the show or possibly even a film adaptation.
Some may recall, during Charmed's run, there were difficulties on set with stars Shannen Doherty and Alyssa Milano getting along. To end the feud, Doherty's character was subsequently killed off and replaced by Rose McGowan's Paige, later on in the series. However, it does appear that both Doherty and Milano have buried the hatchet and mended fences. Milano even congratulated Doherty on her wedding a few years ago and Doherty the same when Milano gave birth to her son, Milo.
Whatever the case may be for the Charmed reboot, one thing does remain certain: It has to be done right. With the recent reviews coming out about Fuller House - Netflix's latest revival - not living up to the hype or the glory of its predecessor, I'm sure fans would agree that they would rather have no reboot at all than one that discredits or shames the original series.
UPDATE 3/07: Hold You Horses For a Tick...
Shortly after the news of the Charmed reunion spread like a wildfire all over social media, actress Alyssa Milano took to Twitter and Facebook to clarify her comments about the potential reboot.
It appears fans will have to wait awhile longer for the spellbinding reunion of TV's greatest witches. At least until CBS makes a decision regarding their own reboot that's been in the pipeline for a few years now.
