Alyssa Milano Isn’t Ready For A “Charmed” Reboot

Alyssa Milano took to Twitter recently to voice her opinion on the news that began circulating around the web earlier this week: the remake of “Charmed”, which will air on CBS.

The former child-actress was one of the screen queens of the ’80s with her role on “Who’s The Boss”, and moved almost seamlessly into a success in the ’90s as one-third of a group of sister-witches on “Charmed”. During that time, supernatural shows were all the rage: “Buffy” and “Angel” were enormous hits, and now the trend has come back around, as they are wont to do; when “Underworld” came out, it was all about werewolves. When “Twilight” hit theaters, vampires were everywhere. Now, television execs want in on the witch craze that has come about as “American Horror Story: Coven” and “Witches Of East End” draw in viewers.

“Charmed” was a noted piece of history for the WB after running for eight seasons–even after one of it’s original stars, Shannen Doherty, was replaced in season 4 by Rose McGowan–with a nearly all-female cast, so it’s not hard to see why any network wouldn’t want to bring it back to life.

“I think really it’s due to the success of Charmed and the fact that it had so much success even after it was done, meaning that people looked for it, people searched it out and watched those episode over and over,” Milano said. “The Charmed fans are the greatest fans on the planet and the most loyal fans on the planet. I feel like networks are trying to replicate that.”

Milano took to Twitter to talk about how she feels it’s just too soon for a reboot of the show.

McGowan went for a more direct approach:

“Charmed” joins “Murder, She Wrote” in a new batch of television reboots coming up.

    please do a reboot of charmed I love that show still watch it to this day

  • Melvina Roselyn

    I think she would do well if she did.

  • Alan

    If they do this, I hope they put Danica McKellar in it. She looks SO GOOD now – I really think she needs a show again.

  • Tiera

    i think that milano and mcgowan should be in the reboot of charmed because they did so good in the seasons and i think they would be more better to star in the reboot. they shouldnt let them be replaced by other actors/actress because the show wouldnt be the same without them 2.

    I think Allysa, Rose, and Holly should come back for the reboot it would be so much fun to see them together again they looked well together.

  • Anne Allen

    Will definitely watch that show if they bring it back. Can’t think of the other girl’s name (not Shannon) since her character was killed off the show. I think her name was Holly something. Talking about “PIPER.”
    Don’t think any remake would be the same without them. Just my 2 cents.

    If they decide to do a reboot, Charmed needs to have Holly, Rose & Allysa. <3 Otherwise, it just wouldn't be the same without the "Charmed ones" =)

    Why can’t anyone in Hollywood come up with something fresh and original? Reboots of popular and/or classic shows and movies is so lame and rarely do the reboots live up to the originals. I, for one, will pass on this.

    i love charmed!!! still watch them over and over again. if they wanted to do a reboot its okay for me as long as they keep the original cast. with out them they would become lame and disappointing. maybe do extension or spin off from the original one.
