‘Charmed': Holly Marie Combs Wishes Reboot Well, Quietly Trolls It Pretty Hard

OG sister witch seems silently confused by that new “feminist” twist, too

“Charmed” fans found out that long-talked about reboot had finally been picked up to pilot by The CW on Thursday. But not all of them were happy to hear the Charmed Ones would once again be reconstituted, including — maybe — Holly Marie Combs, one of the OG sister witches.

Combs — who starred in the original series as Piper — took to Twitter shortly after the network announced it had pulled the trigger on the new series. Her official response to the news was gracious, kind and just four-words long: “We wish them well. #Charmed.”

However, her replies to fans (not to mention the tweets she then “liked”) spoke a thousand more.

“If they call it a different name I might wish them well,” one user wrote, to which Combs replied, “Precisely.” “I swear this reboot has died more times than Piper did @H_Combs ???… #ForeverCharmed,” another wrote, with Combs responding, “True story.”

The “Charmed” reboot, which was originally developed last cycle and passed on by the network, is described as a “fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series” and will center on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches.

“Jane the Virgin” creator Jennie Urman will executive produce and has a story credit on the pilot, written by “Jane” alums Jessica O’Toole and Amy Rardin.  Ben Silverman and director Brad Silberling will also serve as executive producers on the pilot from CBS Television Studios.

Oh, Combs seemed silently irritated by that “feminist” twist point, too — for obvious reasons.

Combs shared the “Charmed” screen with “sisters” Alyssa Milano, Shannen Doherty, and then Rose McGowan after Doherty’s exit at the end of Season 3.
