Back in August, inTouch ran an exclusive story claiming that Alyssa Milano, Shannen Doherty, and Holly Marie Combs, stars of the 90s WB hit show Charmed, were "in talks for a reboot."
As you can imagine, fans got excited upon hearing this news, but unfortunately, Combs, who played Piper on the show about a coven of sister-witches who protected those around them from evil spirits and demons, killed the excitement after she took to social media to shut down the dubious claims.
"I’m sorry to say that all the reboot rumors are just that… rumors," Combs wrote.
Shortly after, Milano, who portrayed Pheobe, gave an interview in which she backed up Combs, and explained in detail why a reboot wasn't going to happen.
"I’ll tell you everything I know: the last few years, CBS Studios—not the network, the studio—has been trying to reboot Charmed without any of the old cast members," she told The Daily Beast. "They just want to use the franchise because we have the best fans ever, they were up in arms over this and said you can’t do Charmed without the original cast members."
However, she gave fans a little bit of hope when she said that the original cast is up for a reunion of sorts.
“The other thing that I know is that Shannen, Holly, Rose and I have all said out loud that we are open to some sort of reboot, reunion or something,” Milano continued. "The next thing I heard was that Netflix was doing it, but I heard that strictly from the media and not from my deal with CBS Studios or Netflix, where I have two shows right now."
Now, mere months after the actresses shut down the possibility of a reboot, The CW officially announced that the show is coming back, but of course there is a twist.
