This upcoming TV season, ABC is doing something a little fun and different, a “Cast from the Past” week during the week of October 7th. The special week will feature reunions between a variety of actors and producers across various shows. One of the most exciting reunions is the Charmed reunion featured in Grey’s Anatomy on October 10th.
Yes, you read that right! Charmed actors Holly Marie Combs and Alyssa Milano are set to guest star on Grey’s reuniting with Krista Vernoff (current Grey’s showrunner) and Andy Reaser (current Grey’s producer), who were writers on Charmed. Combs and Milano are playing two sisters (because of course) who have to make a difficult decision about their brain dead sister. Not sure yet who’s playing the third sister, but it’s definitely not Rose McGowan or Shannen Doherty, who played two of the four Halliwell sisters in Charmed.
Full disclosure, I’m a full season behind on Grey’s. The last episode I watched was the season 14 finale when Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew left the show. I haven’t missed it much (sorry, Grey’s), and haven’t felt a strong desire to watch until now. It’s hard to resist checking out an episode featuring the Charmed Ones and I have a feeling I’m not alone.
Other reunions during the “Cast from the Past” week include Dan Aykroyd guest starring on The Conners to reunite with John Goodman, Drew Carey, Kathy Kinney, and Ryan Styles guest starring on American Housewife to reunite with Diedrich Bader, and Golden Brooks, Jill Marie Jones, and Persia White guest starring on Black-ish to reunite with Tracie Ellis Ross.
