One of the Sisters in the 'Charmed' Reboot Is a Lesbian, the Original Cast Is... Confused?
Piper is not having it...
The WB's hit 1998 series Charmed is making a bewitching return to tv!
According to TV Line, producers are describing the 2018 facelift as "'a fierce, funny, feminist reboot' centered on 'three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches.'"
Don't fret, the three new sisters will still have the first letter of their names in common. Macy is a nerdy med student, Madison's a sorority pledge who just wants to fit in, and Mel's an outspoken feminist (who happens to be lesbian).
You read right! One of the Charmed sisters will have a girlfriend!
While we're always happy for more LGBT representation, not everyone is happy about the reboot, including Holly Marie Combs who played Piper in the original. She, along with many of the show's fans, resent the idea that Charmed wasn't already inherently feminist.

\u201c@H_Combs Call me crazy, but I was under the impression Charmed was already a strong feminist show.\u201d— Holly Marie Combs Ryan (@Holly Marie Combs Ryan) 1518024425
