Charmed's Reboot Series Finale Is Being Fought Over By New And Original Writers

More feuds emerge on Twitter between the original and new Charmed casts when original series creator Curtis Kheel criticizes the series finale

Charmed was based on Constance M. Burge's original series of the same name. The original Charmed stars Holly Marie Combs, Shannen Doherty, Alyssa Milano, and subsequently Rose McGowan as Prue, Piper, Pheobe, and Paige, four sisters and witches who use their talents to defend the innocent. The CW revamped the new Charmed with a more diverse cast and characters, as well as relocating the Charmed sisters from San Francisco to Hilltowne. Macy, Mel, and Maggie were represented by Madeleine Mantock, Melonie Diaz, and Sarah Jeffery, respectively, while Lucy Barrett was introduced to the group as Michaela "Kaela" Danso following Macy's death in Charmed season 3. While several fans and members of the original Charmed questioned the reboot's seeming lack of connection to the original three of sisters, the Charmed series finale surprised viewers with an unexpected tie to the original program. Mel, Maggie, and Kaela utilized a portal to get to Halliwell Manor, but Piper, Phoebe, and Paige were not present.

The series finale's ultimate surprise conclusion renewed the animosity between Charmed's original writers and the new ones. The feud started on Twitter, when original series writer Curtis Kheel expressed his dissatisfaction with the series conclusion, stating that Piper, Pheobe, and Paige "vanquished the three imposters when they entered Halliwell Manor" and Combs blew up the gateway. The most current Charmed writers replied by labeling Kheel a "asshole" and that they like both versions of the program. Check out the following tweets:

This is not the first time a cast or staff member from the original Charmed has expressed dissatisfaction with the reboot. Combs slammed the CW's Charmed for not consulting with anybody from the original show, and Kheel was confident that she would agree with his assessment of the ending. Kheel expanded on his statement in subsequent tweets, detailing instances where the original Charmed Ones vanquished imposters and dealt with multiverses that he believed the Charmed series finale overlooked. As more iconic programs are revived, such as Peacock's forthcoming Queer as Folk, online disputes over whether version is superior abound. With supporters defending both sides, it's unclear when the Charmed Twitter controversy will conclude. Regardless matter who wins, the protracted conflict will keep people talking about both Charmed versions for a long time.
