> Description 
Charmed is a U.S. television series about three fictional sisters who are witches; they use their powers to fight evil.

The original lineup of sisters was Prudence Halliwell, Piper Halliwell and Phoebe Halliwell, played by Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs and Lori Rom respectively. Lori Rom only played Phoebe Halliwell in the original series pilot, but left the show due to personal reasons. Alyssa Milano took on the role of Phoebe Halliwell and portions of the pilot were reshot to incorporate Milano into the episode. The original pilot was never aired, but can be found circulating around the Internet.

Due to disagreements between Doherty and Milano, Shannen left Charmed at the end of the third season. So Prue was killed and a previously unknown fourth half-sister called Paige Matthews was written in (played by Rose McGowan).

The series, which has been running since 1998, is shown on the WB television network in the United States and on CTV in Canada. The show has been licensed to other networks, such as the Turner Network Television channel, to show reruns. In addition, Charmed can also be seen on satellite and cable channel Living TV and Five (Ch 5) on normal British terrestrial television in the United Kingdom, and on TV3 (Ireland) in Ireland.

The theme song for the show is a cover version of "How Soon Is Now?", originally by The Smiths, but covered by Love Spit Love. Since its inception, Charmed has also featured musical guests on a regular basis, including Pat Benatar, Dave Navarro, Barenaked Ladies, The Corrs, The Cranberries, Dishwalla, The Goo Goo Dolls, Orgy, Steadman, and many more.

On May 17, 2005 the WB network announced Charmed will be renewed for an eighth--and final--season.
