The new cast of Bewitched has some advice for his predecessors.
In January, The CW announced that it would restart the magic series about 3 sisters who discover that they are the most powerful witches of their time.
With the series ending its 8 seasons in 2006, and the original Halliwells still fresh in the hearts and minds of all, the news of the show has ended with a new cast and characters has not been well received by all.
Those, in particular, include Holly Marie Combs who played the freeze of time Piper Halliwell:
" Bewitched belongs to the 4 of us, our large number of writers, teams and about all the fans, FYI will not trick you with a title / stamp, so goodbye, "he wrote on Twitter.
She also said: "I will never understand what is fierce, funny or feminist when creating a show that basically says that the original actresses are too old to do a job they did 12 years ago."
But the new members of the cast, Melonie Diaz, Sarah Jeffrey, and Madeleine Mantock have expressed enthusiasm and optimism about their new adventure.
"We understand that it's something so sacred to a lot of people, not just the cast but also the fans," said Sarah; whereas Madeleine referred to Holly saying: "She would see it and would like it".
We would not bet the Book of Shadows on it …
Here's the thing. Until you ask us to rewrite it as Brad Kern weekly, do not even think about capitalizing on our hard work. Charmed belongs to all 4 of us, our large number of writers, teams and especially to fans. FYI will not cheat you with a title / stamp. So, goodbye.
