Charmed was a fantasy drama series that ran from 1998 until 2006. For a total of 8 seasons, the "Halliwell" sisters dazzled audiences with their magical adventures, endless drama, and wonderful personalities. But that doesn't mean that fans know everything about the show and the actors involved. Here are some of interesting facts about the drama maybe even some of the hardcore fans don't even know.
The special effects used as well as the stunts performed during the show were cutting edge at the time the show was aired. Using these filming tools was very expensive back then current, and each episode ended costing roughly up to 2 million dollars to produce. "Phoebe", played by Alyssa Milano, was actually supposed to gain the ability to levitate at some point in the series, but this was taken out of the script due to budget cuts.
The only person to appear in every episode of the TV show Charmed was Holly Marie Combs. She was the oldest sister of the group after Doherty's daring exit from the show, but in reality she was actually the youngest.
Did you guys know that there were numerous guest appearances during the show's lifespan? Stars like Kaley Cuoco , Eric Dane, Jon Hamm, Billy Zane and many more have all made appearances on the hit series Charmed at some point.
Shannen Doherty didn't really have much to complain about during her run on the show due to the fact that she was getting paid around $75,000 dollars an episode. Too bad she couldn't get along with the rest of people on set.
After Shannen Doherty got scandalously kicked of the hit series Charmed, producers had to quickly find a new actress to bring the trio back together. Many actresses, such as Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Brown, Tiffani Thiessen and many others auditioned for the role. In the end, the beautiful Rose McGowan got the part!
Constance M. Burge, the same writer who wrote Ally McBeal, created the show Charmed. The show was produced by Aaron Spelling who was also responsible for the hit TV show Beverly Hills 902010, which was - of course - also Shannen Doherty's breakthrough.
The actress who played the sisters' mother "Patty", Finola Hughes, got more fan mail than any other cast member on the show! She's not even a main character on the show!
When Holly Marie Combs became pregnant with her first son, the producers did try to hide it at first but it just didn’t really work. It was obvious that there was a baby bump. So, the writers just wrote her pregnancy into the show - funny, how this real-life event ended up influencing the ark of the show!
"The Book of Shadows" was one of the most detailed constructed props in the series. Alyssa Milano liked the designs seen in the book so much that she had them painted on the walls of her home!
The final season of the hit TV show Charmed was season 8, but the story doesn't end there. The storyline continued in comic book form, taking place 18 months after the final episode. The graphic novels were produced by Zenoscope Entertainment. Season 9 and 10 were both released in 2010 and in 2014.
