It was recently announced that there would be a reboot of the hit 90s and early 2000s show Charmed, but there will be a few major twists. In preparation for the release of the reboot (no specific date has been announced yet) let's take a look at 10 things you didn't know about the original show.

1. Holly Marie Combs (Piper) had two "romances" going on at the same time.

For the entire eight season span of the show, Holly Marie Combs, who played Piper, had an onscreen romance going on with Leo Wyatt who was played by Brian Krause. But she was actually romantically involved with David Donoho, one of the key-grips for the show. They met on set and got married in 2004. She filed for divorce from Donoho and she recently announced that she was once again engaged.

2. Several actors guest appeared on the show before they were as famous as they are now.

As with many of the shows from the 90s and early 2000s, actors and actresses who have become household names would make guest appearances on the shows in an attempt to jump-start their careers, and Charmed was no different. Kaley Cuoco Sweeting, Eric Dane, Jon Hamm, Norman Reedus, Zachary Quinto, Billy Zane, Charisma Carpenter and Amy Adams all made at least one appearance on the show.


3. Only 1 character appeared in every episode.

Holly Marie Combs who played Piper was the only character to appear in every episode of the eight season TV series, even the un-aired pilot that had to be re-shot because of a casting change.

4. It wasn't cheap to make Charmed.

Each episode cost around $2 million to make, which forced the producers, writers and directors to cut out a lot of special effects. Remember when Phoebe gained the power of levitation? Well they wrote that power out of the story because it would have been too expensive to continually create. They even wrote Leo, Piper's love interest, out of the story for a while to save money.  


5. Alyssa Milano wasn't the original Phoebe.

Lori Rom was actually cast as Phoebe originally, but she backed out after the pilot episode was shot. They had to cast Milano and reshoot the pilot before they could even think about going any further. We are glad that this happened because the show wouldn't have been the same without Milano.
