“I am fucking losing my mind right now!”
Alyssa Milano and Holly Marie Combs have sent Charmed fans into meltdown mode.
Milano, who played Phoebe Halliwell on the acclaimed fantasy series, uploaded a photo with Combs, who starred alongside her as sister Piper, on Instagram with the caption: “No caption necessary. Just love. So much love.”
Naturally, fans speculated whether their reunion was due to a potential comeback. “Are you getting a premonition of a reunion?” one fan asked Milano while another wrote: “You have something up your sleeves!”
It comes just a week after Combs teased fans with Charmed news, telling them they “won’t be mad” at what’s to come.
Combs’ message led to fans speculating whether Charmed will be receiving a reunion or comeback in some form, with one writing on Twitter: “What?!? Is there a Charmed movie in the works?!?”
“All Charmed fans wondering and waiting to see if it’s something #Charmed related,” said another. “Have you all ever considered having a Charmed reunion? I would love to at least see you all together.”
One fan asked whether Combs would be making a special guest appearance on the Charmed reboot – which aired on The CW last year (it has been renewed for a second season) to which she simply responded: “No.”
Last year, when Combs was asked by a fan at Comic-Con if a ninth season with the original cast was possible, she replied: “A whole season? I don’t know if a whole season, but maybe something.”
She was then questioned if a movie was possible, to which she said: “Possibly. I say never say never.” Brian Krause – who played Leo Wyatt on the series – agreed with Combs and claimed it’s “possible”.
Airing for eight seasons from 1998-2006, the series focused on the most powerful witches in the world who use their combined “Power of Three” to vanquish demons, warlocks, all evil-dwellers, etc.
It also starred Shannen Doherty as Prue Halliwell, the third and oldest sister who was controversially killed in the season three finale. She was replaced with Rose McGowan’s character Paige Matthews, who later completed the Power of Three.
At 178 episodes, the show became the longest running hour-long television series featuring all female leads (until it was surpassed by Desperate Housewives in 2012) and the second-longest drama broadcast by The WB network.
The show developed a cult following, and is often described by critics as one of the most influential television shows of all time.
Because of its critical acclaim (and because it was the second most streamed show of 2012, six years after the finale), Charmed received a reboot by The CW, which aired its first episode on 14 October 2018.
