Holly Marie Combs Blasts Charmed Reboot: Don't Even Think About It!

at . Comments

Holly Marie Combs was one of the stars of Charmed when it originally aired from 1998 to 2006 on The WB. 

With the news that The CW has ordered a pilot of a reboot of the series, Holly has taken aim at the creative forces behind it in an epic rant. 

Holly released her two cents on the whole thing on Thursday night via her Twitter account, and it was clear she was not even entertaining the prospect of a reboot without any of the original stars or creative team behind it.

“Here’s the thing,” she began. “Until you ask us to rewrite it like [exec producer] Brad Kern did weekly don’t even think of capitalizing on our hard work.”

Combs then reiterated that the franchise “belongs to the four of us” — presumably referring to former co-stars Alyssa Milano, Shannen Doherty and Rose McGowan. 

She then said it also belongs to “our vast amount of writers, crews and predominantly the fans."

The new Charmed offshoot is said to follow three sisters on a college campus and will focus on them learning all about what it takes to be three witches. 

A prequel series was in development last season on the network, but it did not come in the way the network expected it to, and that's why it was retooled and delayed to the next development cycle. 

Charmed is not the only witch-inspired series that was in the works at the network. A reimagining of Sabrina The Teenage Witch was in development, but Netflix swooped in and snapped it up with a two-season order

There is also word that a Hope-centric spinoff of The Originals is in development, but it is yet to officially progress to pilot stage. 

What do you think of this news, Charmed Fanatics?

Should The CW give up on trying to bring the series back?
