The Charmed reboot is officially happening and some people (cough Holly Marie Combs cough) still aren't OK with it. The network already said the cult witch show reboot will center around three new sisters who will kill demons and tear down the patriarchy. Thanks to TVLine, the character names and descriptions are available now. But Combs, one of the original sisters, went off when she heard them.
The sisters will be named Macy, Madison, and Mel. Already, Combs is upset that their names all start with M's. The evil Stillman Sisters in the original show all had names that start with M's (Mable, Mitzy, and Margo) and they tried to steal the Halliwell sisters' identities.
In the reboot, the sisters might be different ethnicities and Mel will be a "strong-willed feminist" lesbian. It seems Combs doesn't approve of that either, for reasons nobody knows. She tweeted, "I have no words…….," she wrote. "I mean I have a lot of words but at this juncture… sure…… yeah ……… We Wish Them Well ………….."
Anyway, Combs has been opposed to a reboot since before she found out about these new details. Last month she tweeted, "Until you ask us to rewrite it like Brad Kern did weekly don't even think of capitalizing on our hard work."
