Why CBS Charmed Remake Is Such A Lame Idea According To Original Show Actors

A 'Charmed' remake is already in the works, after CBS ordered for the pilot script of the hit WB series. However, prior to even naming all of the new stars of the 'Charmed' reboot, original series actors Alyssa Milano and Rose McGowan seem to be not-so-pleased with the idea and even voiced out their opinions on Twitter.

Following the success of witch-themed series such as The CW's 'The Originals,' FX's 'American Horror Story: Coven,' and Lifetime's 'Witches of East End,' CBS has seen the potential of offering a hit witchcraft-related show in the past: 'Charmed.'

Who can ever forget the hit show that ran from 1998 to 2006 for a total of eight seasons? 'Charmed' which was produced by the late Aaron Spelling, and featured three witch sisters played by Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs, and Milano raked high ratings during its first season, and continued to flourish even after Doherty's exit in the third season.

From its third season to its last, McGowan filled in Doherty's spot as the long-lost half-sister of the powerful young witches. And even up to its finale, 'Charmed' broke ratings record for the fledgling network, according to Yahoo! News.

Milano, who is currently starring on ABC's 'Mistresses,' said recently that the success of 'Charmed' was perhaps the main factor that paved the way to the now popular trend of witch dramas.

"I think, really, it's due to the success of 'Charmed' and the fact that it had so much success even after it was done, meaning that people looked for it, people searched it out and watched those episodes over and over," Milano told E! Online. "The 'Charmed' fans are the greatest fans on the planet and the most loyal fans on the planet. I feel like networks are trying to replicate that."

Just this October 26, Milano tweeted that "The thing about them doing a #charmed reboot is... it just.. it feels like yesterday. It feels too close."

Meanwhile, on the same day, Rose McGowan, wrote "They really are running out of ideas in Hollywood," and followed it up a minute later with "lame lame lame lamertons."
