Rose McGowan & Holly Marie Combs feuding with new Charmed Cast

Rose McGowan & Holly Marie Combs feuding with new ‘Charmed’ Cast

Rose McGowan and Holly Marie Combs, who were cast members of the original 'Charmed' are feuding with the cast of the reboot. Here's what happened!

Reboots are often not received well by fans. There are many people that prefer what the original series bring to television. But, in the case of Charmed, it’s the original cast itself that has a problem with the show’s reboot. Actors Rose McGowan and Holly Marie Combs, who played the witch half-sisters, Paige Mathews, and Prue Halliwell, are not big fans of the rebooted 2018 Charmed series. Moreover, the cast of the new show has taken offense to their dislike of the show. Here’s how the drama has unfolded.

The 90s generation grew up wanting to be so much like the Halliwell sisters. Everyone loved watching Rose McGowan, Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs, and Shannon Doherty in Charmed. Now, the newer generation got a chance to relive the same love for three witch sisters. Charmed got a re-make in 2018, with the characters having the same names as well, but with an all-new cast. Moreover, the witches are all women of color, making it more appealing. But, the OG sisters Rose McGowan, who played Paige, and Holly Marie Combs, who played Prue, think otherwise.

The feud started with Rose McGowan saying the reboot “sucks”

It all began when Rose and Holly threw shade at the remake in a video that started circulating on social media. It started as Holly started talking about the original Charmed being taken off of Netflix. She said:

I think it means when you search for it, they want you find the new Charmed and not the old people.

As Holly laughed, Rose McGowan further claimed that the reboot sucks, even though she hasn’t seen it:

But it sucks! I haven’t seen it, I can’t say that. I’ve never seen it. I’m happy that people have jobs. But it can still suck.

And then, Sarah Jeffrey, who plays Maggie in the reboot of Charmed, saw that video. She had a few things to say about it, such as saying that the views of the older women, namely Combs and McGowan were “sad” and “pathetic”. She further wrote that she hopes they find happiness “elsewhere”. Pretty scathing words if you ask me:

After reading Sarah’s response, Holly Marie Combs did not stay silent. She had a huge problem with how Sarah accused her personality over the mere difference opinion on a show, as she tweeted:

Holly has had a problem with the reboot before as well. She took to Twitter in 2018, saying:

What do fans think?

When you read the response of fans and other Twitter users, they’re a bit mixed. You’ll find fans on Rose McGowan’s and Holly Marie Combs’ side as well as people defending the reboot. There are some who enjoyed the rebooted Charmed, saying they loved the representation of POC, and it means a big deal to them:

Meanwhile, there were others, saying that the OG Charmed actresses had a point that the reboot was nowhere near as good:

It’s a bit confusing at this point to judge which side is making valid points. What do you guys think? Was the OG Charmed better and that Rose McGowan, along with Holly Marie Combs, are making valid points? Or is the new Charmed beating them at their game? Let us know in the comments below.
