Charmed fans don’t have long to wait until the rebooted show returns to screens.
Sadly it doesn’t seem like we’ll be seeing any appearances from the original cast – at least not yet.
Shannen Doherty, who played Prue in the original series, revealed the reason she won’t be showing up in The CW’s new show.
Shannen‘s decision has come down to the fact that she’s already set to appear in the reboot of the 1989 cult classic Heathers.
“It’s funny, because somebody said to me, ‘Oh, would you do the Charmed reboot?’ And I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t be the reboot queen!'” she told Entertainment Weekly.
But Shannen‘s former co-star Brian Krause said he’d be more than happy to make a guest appearance on the show.
“You know, going to all the comic cons and seeing how many fans we have all over the world, you know the fans want to see the girls, the original cast,” he told The Wrap.
“They love the idea of Charmed continuing. They just want it to all be integrated. So if they ask me to be a part of it, I feel like it would be great for the fans. I don’t think Leo gets there without Piper though, I’ll tell you that much.”
He added that he thinks the remake is a positive saying: “It’s a compliment that they would reboot our show. It’s a compliment to what the girls created initially. You know, what all four of them did for so long and our writers created. I hope it’s a success, for sure.
“I think with Charmed there are a million storylines you can tell. With magic, anything can happen. It’s endless.
“Like you see with Supernatural it seems to be going after season 25 or something [laughs]. So it’s endless storytelling and I hope the fans get what they want out of this.
Charmed premieres in the US on The CW on October 14.
