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 got into the show late on TNT but im really into the show I like shows that have supernatural things in it i wish you would bring back the show with all the people who is in it toward the end or show how Wyatt grows up and use his power that is the main reason why i want to see more episode see how strong he really get with him growing up and using his power because how they said he would be one of the most powerful magic being to ever walk the earth.

    I was never much of a television watcher.I was channel surfing and came across an episode of Charmed in it’s 2nd season and became a devoted fan and watched every episode until the end of it’s run. I will miss it. I hope they make a movie out of it with the original castmates as parents of the new generation of Halliwells.

    I didn’t see this show for the first time until at least four of the seasons had already been filmed and aired, but once I did, I couldn’t get enough. Honestly, the characters take a horribly complicated and yet unextroardinary world and make it wonderful again. They give us hope that there are people we’re born to love, that death can be overcome, and that shear will can make us succeed. I’m really going to miss piper and leo especially. The actors who played their characters were amazing. They tear your heart and make it soar. They could make the most hurt person in the world and make them believe in true love again.
    This series wasn’t just good, it was magnificent.

    I just fell in love with drama ever since I frit saw it (2002) and I watched every epsoide. I an not belive that it has finished and now I do not know what I would do in my spear time, might just cry because it finished,lol. still I am upset that it finished and it was such a cool and my best tv show ever

    I WISH THEY WILL HAVE THE SAME THING LIKE CHARMED. THAT THE CAST WILL USE MAGIC SPELLS TOO AND THEY WILL ENCOUNTER WARLOCKS AND DEMONS. I HOPE THEY WILL BRING SHANNEN DORHERTY BACK TOO, OR REUNITE HER WITH HOLY MARY COMBS, ITS LIKE A BOOK 2 OF CHARMED, WHEN THE KIDS OF PAIGE OR PHOEBE GROWS UP AND BE THEM.
    PLEASE PLEASE…… CHARMED IS LIKE A PART OF MY LIFE…EVEN ITS BEING REPLAYED AGAIN AND AGAIN WE ARE WATCHING IT….I HOPE YOU WILL MAKE THE SAME TV SHOW. HOPING WITH GOOD CASTING AND WITH SHANNEN, I STARTED LIKE THAT BECAUSE OF HER
