Holly Marie Combs bashes CW’s Charmed reboot and its “feminist” twist: “Don’t even think of capitalizing on our hard work”
After initially throwing shade at The CW’s announcement that it had ordered a pilot for a Charmed reboot, Combs offered a lengthier response late Thursday night: “Here’s the thing. Until you ask us to rewrite it like Brad Kern did weekly don’t even think of capitalizing on our hard work," she tweeted. Referring to her, Alyssa Milano, Rose McGowan and Shannen Doherty, Combs added: “Charmed belongs to the 4 of us, our vast amount of writers, crews and predominantly the fans. FYI you will not fool them by owning a title/stamp. So bye.” On Friday morning, Combs further slammed the revival’s “feminist” twist: “Guess we forgot to do that the first go around. Hmph.”
