'Charmed' Star Holly Marie Combs Slams The Shows Reboot In Epic Twitter Rant Paramount Pictures

In case you weren't aware, The CW (the TV network responsible for Riverdale and all other angsty teenaged drama shows) is planning a reboot of the amazingly mystical series, Charmed.

Originally, the reboot was going to focus on the three daughters of the original witches Piper, Phoebe and Prue, and would involve the original cast popping in and out of each episode.

Now, though, the network has decided to make the series set in modern day and introduce brand new characters.


Entertainment Weekly has reported that the new Charmed will now be a "fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series" that "centres on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches.

"Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done."

Charmed star Holly Marie Combs, who played Piper in the original series, saw this and immediately took to Twitter to remind the network that the original series was based on three women who were already strong females.

She then explained that the new show would not be as good as the original unless they write it the way Brad Kern, who produced the original series, did.


And later, she focused on what a reboot is supposed to be and implied that the new Charmed is technically a brand new show.


Finally, the actress explained exactly why she's so against the new "feminist" Charmed and said that because the network described the reboot as a "feminist" show, they've implied that the original was not and have therefore offended Holly, and diminished the work that her co-stars Alyssa Milano and Rose McGowan had recently done for the #MeToo movement. 



Don't mess with the Halliwell sisters!
