Are you watching the new Charmed? Recently, original series star Shannen Doherty defended the CW reboot, TVLine reports.
The new Charmed centers on three sisters who discover they have special abilities in the wake of their mother’s murder. The CW series stars Melonie Diaz, Sarah Jeffery, Madeleine Mantock, Ser’Darius Blai, Ellen Tamaki, and Rupert Evans.
At this year’s Comic-Con Paris, Doherty discussed the backlash the Charmed reboot has received and implored fans of the original series “to be a little bit kinder”:
I have seen a lot of people be very mean and very negative and cruel to the new show and the new cast. I want to remind everybody that these are three girls who just want to act. They got a huge opportunity, and I would implore everybody to be a little bit kinder.”
[T]his is a show about three strong women again… I know that it may not be your Charmed, but you should all really pat yourselves on the back and congratulate yourselves, because you’re the most loyal, amazing fans in the world. And because of you, you made it a show that a younger generation wants to see.”
