Here’s some Interesting Charmed trivia for fans of the Halliwell sisters.
Several of the actors on Charmed are veterans of other Aaron Spelling shows. Dorian Gregory (Officer Darryl Morris) appeared on Beverly Hills, 90210 which starred Shannon Doherty for several seasons. Alyssa Milano starred on Melrose Place.

In the original Charmed series pilot, Phoebe was played by actress Lori Rom who went on to recurring roles on Party of Five, Providence and Jack & Jill). Lori was replaced by Alyssa Milano and the Phoebe scenes were re-shot to include Alyssa.

The Charmed Ones and BillieIn the first episode, there’s a newspaper that says, “Police Doubt Fire Was Accidental.” This paper was also used as a prop in the movie Mrs. Doubtfire. That movie starred Robin Williams and also took place in San Francisco. In the movie, Robin Williams’ character used the second and third word of the headline to invent the title character’s name.

Each of the Halliwell sisters died several times during the series. Prue died three times, Piper died nine times, Phoebe died seven times and Paige died six times. All returned to life with the exception of Prue when Shannon Doherty left the show.

Holly Marie Combs & Alyssa Milano are the only actors to appear in every episode of the series. If you count the unaired pilot, Holly Marie Combs alone holds that distinction. Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano, Brian Krause (Leo) and Jennifer Rhodes (Grams) are the only actors to appear in every season of the series.

As predicted in the season three episode entitled “All Halliwell’s Eve,” the first name of Phoebe’s true love begins with a “C” — Coop (or was it truly Cole?).

The scene at the end of the next-to-last episode when the Manor is blown up was actually the last scene of the series ever shot.

The final shot of the series of the Manor doors closing is the same shot used in the season 4 episode “Witch Way Now?”. The reduced season eight budget prevented new scenes from being shot on location for the final season. TV Series Finale home page

    i love charmed and watched every single episode. i’m even watching all of the repeats on tnt. i actually just got done watching the series finale again. i miss this show… i think they cut it way too short.

    i think the producers should do a spinoff of the original show. maybe call it “charmed again” where the kids and grandkids are doing everything. the sisters should still star in it too.

    if not another series, definitely a movie!

    quoto tutto quello che hai scritto…brava!

    I think it is a raw deal with what they did with Prue, the only reason they did not put her picture up was because they would have to pay Shannon royalties. They should have brought her back even if all we saw was an image that was faint, leaving her out intirely was unprofessional, the wiccanings would never be missed by Prue even in death, she would be there to protect her family. I think even a small picture of her should have been done in the season finaly, or at least shown her spirit being there.
    She is my favorite, but to keep the story line accurate, Prue should have been more than just a name mentioned. If they make a come back, they should do more this time.
