Stop everything because Alyssa Milano says a “Charmed” reboot could be in the works
There’s no denying it: TV show reboots are proving to be wildly successful. Fuller House won our hearts with nostalgia and was just renewed for a second season. Gilmore Girls: Seasons is hard at work on what might be the most anticipated reboot of all time. And now, it appears that the Charmed cast is on board to bring the series back.
Charmed starred Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs, Rose McGowan and Shannen Doherty as witches, each with their own unique ability. The show ran for eight seasons in the late ’90s and well into the 2000s, and was kind of like a more PG-13 version of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. Fans loved it—they still do—and are ready for it to come back as part of this reboot resurgence. And Alyssa Milano says it’s definitely a possibility.
“It seems like that’s going to happen any second,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I just feel like with all these reunions, and we still have such a cult following, that I feel like someone’s going to put that together at some point, and we’re all totally on board for that!”
Fans are into the idea as well. There’s a Facebook group called “Charmed Reunion” where fans share memes and even suggest story ideas for the revival. The group is very active and has over 21.2k members so far—and counting!
This isn’t the first time the idea of a reboot has been floated around. Back in 2013, Alyssa addressed the idea of making a Charmed movie on Twitter, asking Holly Marie Combs, Rose McGowan and Shannen Doherty if they were in. Shannen was totally down, saying there were enough loose ends to keep the story going.
Now, it’s only a matter of time until Netflix swoops in and orders some new episodes!
