CBS television network executives announced recently that they're seriously considering bringing back the show "Charmed." Two former cast members of the original show aren't happy about it, the New York Daily News reported today.
Some of the show's original cast members didn't seem to pleased with the idea with the rebirth of their show. Alyssa Milano and Rose McGowan recently weighed in on the idea via their Twitter pages.
"The thing about them doing a #charmed reboot is... it just... it feels like yesterday. It feels too close," Milano posted on her Twitter page.
"They really are running out of ideas in Hollywood. Lame lame lame lamertons." McGowan tweeted on Friday.
The original show was cancelled in 2006. CBS has "Party of Five's" Chris Keyser and Sydney Sidner writing the script for the reboot.
"Charmed" was created by writer Constance M. Burge and produced by Aaron Spelling and his production company Spelling Television. The original show aired for eight seasons from October 7, 1998 until May 21, 2006.
The show follows three sisters known as the charmed ones. Seasons one through three focused on the three Haliwell sisters, Prue (Shannen Doherty), Piper (Holly Marie Combs), and Phoebe (Alyssa Milano). With the death of Prue in the third season, Paige Matthews (Rose McGowan), a long-lost half-sister is introduced in the fourth season and replaces Prue to complete the power of three.
