    DVDs Charmed (CW Reboot) News/Trailers/Discussion SPOILERS


    Well, it looks like Charmed is finally coming back to TV. However, I don't think all fans are excited about the differences in the reboot.

    Here is the trailer:

    It doesn't seem that everyone is thrilled about the reboot of Charmed!


    Even Holly Marie Combs (Piper) doesn't seem pleased with the reboot. She made some negative twitter posts back in January about the reboot.

    Whenever I hear a character refer to themselves as "strong women", it makes me wary. I don't like watching shows that have over-the-top feminism, because it seems they end up putting the male characters down.

    I was sort of looking to trying it out...until I saw that.

    Charmed actor Ser’Darius Blain, who stars on The CW’s upcoming fall reboot, is speaking out about the outcry from fans and stars of the original series.

    Blain weighed in on the drama while talking to ET at the Celebrity Connected Honoring the MTV Movie & TV Awards Luxury Gifting Suite at the W Hollywood hotel in Los Angeles, California, on Friday.

    “Honestly, it’s sad for me,” said the 31-year-old actor, who plays a potential love interest for one of the three sisters, Macy (Madeleine Mantock), on the new series. “I don’t like that there’s so much discord between the old and the new. I wish we could just come together, find a happy medium and all be happy.”

    Blain added that he believes the fact that so many old shows are returning with their original cast members, while Charmed is not, may have contributed to disapproval of the revival. While he’d love to have the original stars make guest appearances, he’s confident that the reboot will not disgrace the show’s legacy.

    “I think old fans are afraid we’re going to completely forget what was built before us or not going to pay homage to it and it’s very much the opposite,” he said.

    “We’re not trying to replace them at all,” Blain reassured fans. “I wish them all nothing but the best and hope we get to see each other at Comic-Con or something -- hang out, grab some drinks! I hope they don’t think we’re trying to take their legacy or anything because it’s not the case. If we could have them cameo, we would not say no. We’re actors -- we just want to play!”

    In May, The CW officially ordered the new Charmed to series, centered on a new, younger crop of sisters -- Macy (Mantock), Mel (Melonie Diaz) and Maggie (Sarah Jeffery) -- who, after the death of their mother, discover they are The Charmed Ones. Not everyone was thrilled with the news; original star Holly Marie Combs, who played Piper Halliwell on the 1998-2006 WB show, made headlines when she slammed the project.

    “I appreciate the jobs and opportunities the Charmed reboot has created. But I will never understand what is fierce, funny, or feminist in creating a show that basically says the original actresses are too old to do a job they did 12 years ago," Combs wrote in May, adding that she hoped the revival would be “better than the marketing so far.”

    One of the reboot’s lead actresses, Jeffery, tweeted soon after that she respected the “foundation” that was laid by the original series, but wouldn’t stand by and take criticism. “When my character is challenged, when there is futile yet harmful noise about how we are either incapable or doomed, I will vociferously defend myself and my sisters," Jeffery wrote in a tweet seemingly aimed at Combs.

    Blain, who starred alongside Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle last year, got involved in the reboot through his connection with the writers, Amy Rardin and Jessica O’Toole, who penned his first series, Jane by Design. Blain got a call the same day he auditioned with news he’d landed the role.

    “I was 12 when the original came out, so I started watching way back then,” Blain said. “My cousin was addicted to it too -- we had to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Charmed every week -- and I really got to love Piper, Prue and Phoebe. They were always getting into something crazy and saving the world, so we’re going to do a lot of the same in this one, but give it our own mark as well.”

    “My character has a crush on one of the sisters and we go from there,” he teased. “I’m excited to bring in a new fan base for Charmed and to surprise and shock the old ones as well -- bridge the gap between both. Maybe I’ll get some superpowers!”

    Charmed premieres Sunday, Oct. 14 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
    Hmmmm...I have mixed feelings about the new show. I wish we had the original actresses back, but I also want to give the new show a chance.

    As a Charmed fan (loved the cheesiness of it), I would rather have a continuation of the story. Time for a rewatch then!

    Same here. I can understand what they are trying to do, but it really would have been better if they build on what has been done before and not repeat it. There is no way this can be better than the Original, but I will still give it a chance. It deserves that much.

    I dunno...I saw a trailer where they showed the Charmed Ones' whitelighter. Instead of orbbing in, it looks like he apparated like a Harry Potter character. I still wanna give the show a chance, but I just don't know. Some of the aspects of the show seem off from the original. The level of power they display in the trailers is not consistent with what we've seen in Charmed. The original sisters powers grew over time.
