Charmed boss regrets not reaching out to the original cast members
"In retrospect, you wish that we had all had conversations and had reached out," says showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman. "I do, (at least,) only because of all of the feelings that got excavated once that happened. Then you look back and you realize, this was such a huge part of their lives for so long, of course they're feeling like, 'Oh my gosh, it's being taken in a direction without me.' But hindsight is 20/20. We understand their feelings, and at the same time we want to give these women — who are starring in the reboot and who have really strong voices — an opportunity to be the heroes of the story, and an opportunity to do their version of the show. It’s always tricky when you take a property that has existed and, I can only speak for myself, but I just wasn’t fully aware of all of the deep, emotional ties and the feelings that came out of that — really human feelings. So I would like to do better if there’s better rebooting in my future, who knows." ALSO: 10 times the Charmed premiere honored the original series.
