The reboot, written by Jessica O'Toole and Amy Rardin (Jane the Virgin), is inspired by the beloved 1998 series and has elicited a strong reaction from both fans and naysayers alike. "Omg!!! Much more than I expected! My heart has stopped! I can't wait!!!!!!" one fan tweeted. "The old cast is gone . . . it will never be the same without Phoebe, Piper, Paige and Pru[e]," another person wrote.
Holly Marie Combs and Shannen Doherty, who played Piper and Prue Halliwell respectively, have expressed their opinions on the reboot also. "Charmed belongs to the 4 of us, our vast amount of writers, crews and predominantly the fans," Combs tweeted. "FYI you will not fool them by owning a title/stamp. So bye." On the flip side, Doherty is choosing to keep an open mind. "I'm intrigued by the idea that a new generation might be comforted, inspired like all you were. Charmed helped us all in some way," she said.
