‘Charmed’ Movies: Alyssa Milano Teases Possible Development on Netflix with Holly Marie Combs
The actress spoke of their plans on Access Daily saying it will be different from the current “Charmed” reboot on The CW, which is currently in its second season.
“It’s a different show and it felt like they were trying to capitalize off the name but not continuing on the storyline or the legacy,” Milano said. But we have been talking about maybe doing some films for Netflix and so I think that would be really fun and I think it’s a great way to celebrate our fans that have stuck with us for such a long time but still give it new blood.”
Milano and Combs recently reunited on the small screen in an episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” and this sparked talks of a possible reboot of their former TV show. Twelve years since “Charmed” ended, the reunion in the ABC drama had Milano and Combs back on their drive immediately.
“It was like we were at work yesterday doing ‘Charmed,’” Milano said.
In the witchy drama series, the actress played the youngest sister, Phoebe, among three siblings. Combs was the middle child, Piper, while Shannen Doherty played the eldest Prue. The latter left the show after the third season and was replaced by Rose McGowan as the half-sister, Paige.
Milano said working on “Charmed” was so much fun. “I mean, you don’t take yourself too seriously on that show because we were battling demons every day in ridiculous costumes, you know what I mean?”
Meanwhile, Netflix and CBS TV Studios, which owned “Charmed,” have not made comments about the actress’ declarations regarding a movie reboot. The show aired from 1998 to 2002 on the defunct network The WB (now The CW).
