While it was already announced in the earlier part of this year that The CW is delaying its planned reboot of the popular TV series "Charmed" for next year's Fall TV season, the latest rumors claim that Shannen Doherty and Alyssa Milano are now talking a lot about their plan to reboot the said series.
There is no denying that "Charmed" is one of the most clamored-for series to be rebooted. After all, the original series still has a cult following to this day that continues to demand more of the Halliwell sisters Prue (Shannen Doherty), Piper (Holly Marie Combs), and Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) as the magical witch sisters who protect the innocent.
To recall, The CW announced earlier this year that it was planning to reboot the popular TV series that ran for eight seasons from 1998 to 2006. However, to the dismay of the fans of the original "Charmed," the network revealed it was planning to make a prequel to the original story that would not involve any of the original cast members.
After making noise on social media, fans of the original "Charmed" succeeded in preventing the reboot from happening as The CW announced that it was delaying the reboot for Fall TV season 2018 with a new script.
As of this writing, there is still no update on The CW's plan for the reboot of "Charmed," especially if it will involve the original cast members or not. However, according to a source of Life & Style, Doherty and Milano now talk a lot about their own plans of reviving the series that made them a household name in the past. It remains unclear if it is in conjunction with The CW's plan or a totally different project at all.
"Alyssa and Shannen are hoping Charmed gets a second life on network TV or Netflix. They have been talking to [co-star] Holly [Marie Combs] about reprising their roles. They're getting a kick out of the idea of getting to play moms in their 40's with teenage witches as daughters," the incognito source told the publication.
It can be recalled that Doherty and Milano had a falling out during their stint on "Charmed," and it was believed that the conflict was the reason why Doherty left the series after its third season run. However, since Doherty was diagnosed with cancer, the two have rekindled their friendship after Milano reached out to her former co-star.
Doherty announced last April that her cancer is already in remission.
With the renewed friendship between the two, fans can only hope that there will be no more stopping them from reprising their respective "Charmed" roles in a reboot.
