For every piece of popular culture, there is a fandom. For every movie, TV show, or character, no matter how big or small, there is a loyal legion of fans who obsess over it with a burning passion. And no matter how long ago said production was a thing, its associated fandom will always exist. I am proud to say that I’m an active member of the Charmed fandom and not only have I visited the Charmed manor, met the actresses (and actor), and have interviewed our guardian angel, Brain Krause (who plays Leo), but I also follow many fan pages online to keep up with all the spicy Charmed updates.
Since the show ended back in 2006, fans have been gunning for a revival or movie of some sort and many years later we were granted with a revisit to the witchy series, but to our dismay, it was via a lacklustre reboot that not only failed to consult the OG actresses for spiritual advice, but also spit in the face of the groundbreaking series.
One of the most frustrating aspects of the reboot is the fact that literally all four actresses who played the pioneer Charmed Ones, Shannen Doherty (Prue), Holly Marie Combs Ryan (Piper), Alyssa Milano (Phoebe), and Rose McGowan (Paige), have expressed their interest in revisiting their characters. But instead they churn-out the half-baked bullshit that is the CW reboot?
In fact, as recently as last year, Holly and Alyssa had been speaking to Netflix about the potential of a Charmed film or television spesh, so Charmed fans have had their ears to the ground of the Underworld for any potential tea about a revival.
Then recently, some viral pics sent the Whitelighter world on fire as a camera crew appeared to be filming ~something~ at the almighty Halliwell Manor, which exists in Los Angeles, rather than San Francisco.
Oh wait hang on, that’s a photo of me at the Manor during my LA trip. How did that get in there?
I meant to embed this footage via a Charmed fan page:
As folks started to speculate that the Power of Three had possibly been reconstituted once again, fans were disappointed to learn that the camera crew isn’t Charmed related.
Apparently there’s a new movie being filmed there, starring Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, Robert De Niro, Zoe Saldana, Rami Malek and more.

Shoutout to @Charmed_Reunion for the intel. If you’re a Charmed fan, I recommend chucking them a follow for news and updates. The name itself is manifesting the Charmed reunion we’ve all been desperately trying, and failing, to summon for years, not unlike how Piper tried and failed to summon Prue back from the dead in season 4.
All of us right now:
