Charmed ran for eight glorious seasons from 1998-2006 and while it’s unfortunate we no longer get to watch the Charmed Ones in action, it seems to be one of those shows that is better the second time around. Rewatching the series makes us appreciate it even more than we did when it was airing which also fuels further interest in the show about things that fans may have never known. Charmed was a great show and one of a kind for several reasons. It was based on witches, which was unheard of at the time and it was one of a very few shows lead by all females through the talents of Shannen Doherty (Prue Halliwell), Holly Marie Combs (Piper Halliwell), Alyssa Milano (Phoebe Halliwell) and Rose McGowan (Paige Matthews). If you loved the show as much as us, check out some things you probably didn’t know about Charmed.
10. Holly Marie Combs (Piper Halliwell) spent all eight seasons in an on-screen romance with Brian Krause’s character Leo Wyatt but she actually married David Donoho, a key-grip for the show, after the two met on set. They were married in 2004 and have three sons, with her second pregnancy being written into the show and changing the story. Combs filed for divorce in November 2011 citing irreconcilable differences.
