Whether you followed the original “Charmed” series from 1998, or its new reboot premiered in 2018, the biggest and most distinct change we all noticed in the reboot is its cast.

The OG “Charmed” witch sisters were played by Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs, Shannen Doherty and Rose McGowan, while the new cast showcases multi-ethnic actresses, such as Madeleine Mantock, Melonie Diaz and Sarah Jeffery.

We love this new diverse representation, and also love the iconic actresses from the old “Charmed”. However, the original and new cast members don’t seem to have many nice things to say about each other.

In a recent video that has resurfaced on social media, Holly and Rose from the OG “Charmed” series are seen blatantly criticising the new reboot by bringing up the topic about how the older version of the series was taken out of Netflix.

When pondering about what “‘Charmed’ left Netflix” means, the actress who played the role of Piper in the original series stated, I think it means when you search for it, they want you to find the new ‘Charmed’ and not the old people.”

Rose, who played Paige in the OG “Charmed”, chipped into the video by commenting, But it sucks! I haven’t seen it, I can’t say that. I’ve never seen it.” Holly laughed at this remark and prodded her fellow actress to repeat what she just said by stating, “I didn’t hear what you said.” 

“I said it sucks!” exclaimed Rose in response. “but I’m happy that people have jobs. But it can still suck!”

Ooofwe definitely would not want to be a cast member of the new “Charmed” series right now, as hearing that the show “sucks” from the OG crew itself must hurt!

However, Sarah Jeffrey (who plays the role of Maggie in the reboot) was not going to stay silent when the leading ladies of the 1998 hit series were basically slamming her job.

The 24-year-old actress responded to Holly and Rose’s comments in this series of tweets:

The girls are going at it, as Holly responded to Sarah’s remarks in a tweet she posted today (14th October). The 46-year-old actress stated that Sarah’s tweets were “some bullshit” and also warned the younger actress with a defensive statement reading, “Until you ask us to rewrite it like Brad Kern did weekly, don’t even think of capitalising on our hard work.”

The “Pretty Little Liars” actress also added, “FYI you will not fool them by owning a title/stamp. So bye.” Check out both her tweets here:

However, it’s not only bad blood amongst the separate casts from each show. Sarah posted a picture of her dad and Shannen with a caption stating that the actress who played Prue in the OG series was “thrilled for us”.

The picture was said to be taken before the Covid-19 pandemic, which means that the Canadian actress chose to post this picture now just to show fans – and obviously Holly and Rose – that the new cast has someone from the other team rooting for them.

This rivalry with the original and new “Charmed” casts seems all so very high school, but the tea is undeniably hot!

Both groups do seem to make valid points in their own defence, but maybe they could have taken a less petty approach? But again, let’s not forget that this is Hollywood drama we’re talking about. 😉
