Earlier this year it was revealed that American network The CW was developing a prequel to the classic magical series Charmed, but it wouldn’t feature any of the original actresses. This news, which received a lukewarm response from fans, raised questions about a possible Charmed revival.
Considering that the current trend is to remake TV series – Gilmore Girls, Will & Grace and Roseanne have all either been remade or a remake is in the works – it’s not impossible to imagine that the three supernatural sisters could soon grace our screens.
These prayers may soon be answered with the recent news that Holly Marie Combs, who played Piper Halliwell, confirmed that she would sign on for a Charmed remake.
“At this point, I can almost never see myself saying no to a Charmed reunion, because it’s so important to so many people I’ve already met personally,” Holly told Philly.com.
Fans were delighted when Holly announced her interest in reprising her role as a witch during an appearance at the Wizard World 2017 in Philadelphia.
Holly added that her close relationship with her co-stars Alyssa Milano and Rose McGowan helped to strengthen the series where the trio played sisters.
“I am still friends with them,” Holly said. “It’s funny. I always say you go through these stages of life, when, you know, we acted like sisters. We got along. We agreed. Sometimes we didn’t agree. We fought. We went to weddings.
“It was definitely like a real family (and) we were sort of bonded in that way. I think that bond is strengthened by how meaningful the show has been to so many people (and how) it just goes on in its own way.”
Even though Holly is interested, would Alyssa Milano and Rose McGowan want to come back?
Their recent Instagram posts could be a hint that the actresses would reprise their roles.
On June 2, Rose McGowan, who played the youngest sister Paige Matthews, posted a photo of the trio with the caption: “The power of 3 always exists”.
Meanwhile, Alyssa Milano has also posted a throwback picture of the Charmed Ones from the earlier seasons which included Shannen Doherty, who played eldest sister Prue Halliwell before she was killed in the series and replaced by Rose McGowan.
Our fingers are firmly crossed for this one!
