All the details of the new Charmed reboot have been released, and some of the original cast members aren't too happy. Holly Marie Combs, the actress who played Piper Halliwell in the original series, isn't thrilled about a lesbian character in the Charmed reboot, and decided to share her thoughts on Twitter. Click through for more details!
TVLine reported the casting breakdowns of the three main characters: sisters in a college town who discover they're witches. And one of the sisters is Mel Pruitt, who is dating female Detective Soo Jin.
Mel is also a “strong-willed feminist” with time-freezing abilities. All of the new sisters also have "M" names, which Holly is upset about, too. In the original series, the evil Stillman Sisters all had names that start with M’s and they tried to steal the Halliwell sisters’ identities.
Holly then tweeted a link to an article about the reboot's "LGBT twist," writing "I have no words....... I mean I have a lot of words but at this juncture... sure...... yeah ......... We Wish Them Well."
Here’s the thing. Until you ask us to rewrite it like Brad Kern did weekly don’t even think of capitalizing on our hard work. Charmed belongs to the 4 of us, our vast amount of writers, crews and predominantly the fans. FYI you will not fool them by owning a title/stamp. So bye.— Holly Marie Combs Ryan (@H_Combs) January 26, 2018
This isn't the first time she's spoken negatively about the reboot. "Here’s the thing," she tweeted in January. "Until you ask us to rewrite it like Brad Kern did weekly don’t even think of capitalizing on our hard work.
