The original series, Charmed, which ran for a total of 180 episodes between the years 1998 and 2006, left the online streaming service providing platform Netflix this month in order to move to Peacock. Holly Marie Combs, one of the members of the cast, and Rose McGowan, however, seemed to take the exit of the series from the streaming giant personally. She held nothing back in response to Sarah Jeffery, the reboot star, calling her and Holly, pathetic for criticizing the reboot of the show.
The 47 years old McGowan repeatedly said in a chat with 46 years old Holly that the reboot of the show really sucks. She also admitted that she has not even seen it as it is not good enough. The 24 years old star Sarah Jeffery later called out the members of the original cast and criticized them for putting down other WOC.

The current leads of the series, Melonie Diaz, Madeleine Mantox, and Jefferey, are all women of color. Holly Combs hit back at Jeffery on Tuesday, and McGowan followed suit on Wednesday. The former star said in a statement on her Instagram story that she honestly had no idea who Sarah was till she tweeted. In addition to this, she said that she had been too busy fighting monsters and fighting for a massive Cultural Reset to notice who is in the reboot of the show.

Rose McGowan continued and said that absolutely nothing to do with the race; that is quite a stretch that she took. She is beyond glad any WOC has a well-paying job. In addition to this, she said she is sure that Sarah is a great actress.
Continuingly she said that her quibble is about the executives and the producers and @wb network trading on years of her work and name in such an obvious and cynical way, a money grab to cash in on the name of Charmed. She does not care that the makers of the show recreated it, she has bigger things that she is dealing with, and she does not nor will be watching a show she disagrees with on principle.
The original cast of the witchy drama aired from the years 1998 to 2006 and was later rebooted in the year 2018 with a fresh set of stars.
