This Original 'Charmed' Star Wants You To Stop Hating on 'Charmed' Reboot Series

Shannen Doherty, who starred as Prue Halliwell on the original Charmed series, is over hearing hate towards the new show.

During a Q&A at Comic-Con Paris, the actress opened up about giving the series – now starring Melonie Diaz, Madeleine Mantock and Sarah Jeffery – a chance.

“I have seen a lot of people be very mean and very negative and cruel to the new show and the new cast,” Shannen shared, where the mention of the show drew boos from the crowd.

“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.”

She added that the new show was a “positive, good influence,” and that “this 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.”

Shannen continued: “You have to think about what Charmed did for you when it was on and think about what that’s going to do for a new generation. Embrace it, you guys. It’s doing well, ratings-wise, and it’s employing over 200 people.”

Charmed airs Sundays @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.
