    Q: How did Prue die?

    A:If you watched the last episode of sesaon 3 All Hell Breaks Loose, you'll know about the demon named Shax. At the end It shows Prue and Piper being thrown against a wall by Shax. But that's the end and we don't know if they live or die. They were suppose to live and Prue was suppose to be in the 4th season. But Shannen left the show and they had to make it like she died. If you saw the season premeire for season 4 Charmed Again, it will say that Prue died because of blood loss. She was dead before Leo could heal her. But he was able to heal Piper.

    Q:Is Prue coming back for this season?

    A:"I keep hearing that Shannen Doherty is coming back to Charmed this season. Is it true?" Ausiello: I ask exec producer Brad Kern this question every time we talk — and his response usually goes something like this: "Um, are you nuts?!?!?" But considering this will likely be the show's last season, it stands to reason that Prue would pay a visit in the final episode, right? Wrong. "I can't imagine she would," Kern admits, adding, "I can't imagine she'd want to. I'm not averse to picking up the phone and asking, but it's hard for me to imagine that she would want to."

    Q.Is this the last season for Charmed Season 8? Will there be a season 9? Who signed on for the next 3 seasons? Whos coming back?

    A. At the time of this entry (1/7/06) No one knows for sure yet. There are lots of rumors and speculation on the show and the actors/actresses, but nothing is know from Brad Kern, the Cast or the WB. Don't believe anything until you see it on the WB Official site. Look for a definite answer in Late Feb - Sometime in March.

    That is kindda true because as the pages for this increases, people would just go to the last page and post the already asked question.

    But at the same time, if you post all the question, the post would be too long that some ppl would just ignore it.

    Some things are just inevitable my friend.

    These are the questions and answers we have asked and answered so far.

    I made a similar FAQ for the IMDb Charmed board and here it is, hopefully it can get some use here...

    Rose McGowan
    www.rosemcgowanonline.com
    Shannen Doherty
    www.justshannen.com

    What's the situation with DVD's?
    (This only covers Region 1)
    The DVD for the first season is out now
    The DVD for the second season is out now
    The DVD for the third season is out now
    The DVD for the fourth season is released on February 28

    What were the reasons behind Shannen Doherty’s departure?
    Shannen left amongst rumors of on-set arguments and fights between herself and Alyssa Milano. Shannen has been quoted as saying that she disliked Charmed and believed "it's made for 8-year-olds". In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Shannen stated that "there was too much drama on the set and not enough passion for the work", she continued, "I'm 30 years-old and I haven't got time for drama in my life... I want to work with actors who really care and that want to be there every day, not people who b*tch about their job and complain about it" She said that "Holly remains one of my best friends... and that there were never any problems between us and we will always be pals". Shannen revealed that she "found the work un-fulfilling" and planned for her departure as early as December 2000. There are also rumors of pay disputes and arguments with Brad Kern. Shannen disliked the direction the show was going in and hated that Kern and Aaron Spelling teamed up to ignore Constance Burge, the creator of Charmed, and her ideas for the show. Connie departed at the end of season two, something Shannen credits was another reason behind her departure.

    What were the reasons behind Julian McMahon's departure?
    He was only signed up till episode 100. He is currently seen on the FX series Nip/Tuck. Cole dies in "Centennial Charmed", the 100th episode. Cole was vanquished by The Charmed Ones in an alternate reality where he was Balthazar again. He returned in season seven "The Seven Year Witch" but is unlikely to come back, since he only agreed for one-more "return appearance" after he left in season five.

    What happened to the boyfriend characters on the series?
    Dan Gordon (Greg Vaughan) left San Francisco after being involved in a love triangle between himself, Piper and Leo and discovering Piper's secret
    Jason Dean (Eric Dane) left the series after discovering Phoebe's secret.
    Richard Montana (Balthazar Getty) was dumped by Paige after she discovered his over-dependancy on magic.
    Leslie St. Claire (Nick Lachey) left the series to pursue a job offer in Los Angeles.
    Kyle Brody (Kerr Smith) was killed by Avatar Beta and later became a Whitelighter.

    Who plays baby Wyatt on the show?
    Wyatt is played by twins Kristopher and Jason Simmons.

    What are the sisters powers?
    Piper
    - Can freeze time by slowing down molecules in the air
    - Can blow things up by speeding up molecules in the air

    Phoebe*
    - Recieves premonitions of the future
    - Can levitate in the air
    - Can channel empathy and senses people's inner feelings
    - Can occasionally go into the future during her premonitions
    *All of Phoebe's powers were taken away in the season six episode Crimes and Witch Demeanors by the Witch's Council as punishment for exposing magic, but they sometimes pop up when they are neccessary for storylines.

    Paige
    - Can orb herself from one location to another
    - Can move things by orbing them with a wave of her hand and calling for them
    - Can sense evil (due to being half-Whitelighter)
    - Can sense her charges (due to being half-Whitelighter)
    - Can shapeshift into others

    Prue
    - Can move things with her mind, she channels this power through her eyes (early season one) and then her hands (end of season one)
    - Can astral project into different locations

    What's with the cast changes in season eight?
    Due to budget cuts, Charmed producers had to fire Dorian Gregory (Darryl) and cut back Leo's appearances. He will only appear in 10 episodes of season eight although Brad Kern has stated that they are trying to keep him on the show for longer. There are rumors that they have got him back for the season finale.

    Where can I find pictures/screencaps for Charmed
    Season promos and promotional shots can be found here...
    http://fan-sites.org/charmed/gallery/
    Screencaps can be found at
    http://www.thedemonsjumble.com/pictures-episodes.htm

    What's with the unaired pilot and where can I download it?
    Before Charmed first aired on 7 October 1998, an unaired pilot was made to encourage the WB to pick up the series. It is almost identical to the aired pilot Something Wicca This Way Goes but featured a different actress playing Phoebe (Lori Rom) and a different actor playing Andy (Chris Boyd). Lori Rom left the series due to personal reasons and Andy was just recast as Boyd supposedly didn't fit in well with the regulars.
    The unaired pilot is available for download at
    http://charmed.fan-sites.org/pilot.php

    Where can I find spoilers for Charmed?

    1326 Carroll Avenue
    Los Angeles
    CA 90026

    Is Rose McGowan leaving at the end of season eight?
    Yes, she has confirmed that it is her last season but that doesn't necessarily mean Charmed itself is ending.

    Who performs the Charmed theme song?
    It is called "How Soon is Now?" and is performed by the band Love Spit Love. It is available on the first Charmed soundtrack.

    Where can I download the Charmed theme song?
    The version which is in the opening credits (only 50 seconds) is avaliable here... http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=de&u=http://timstvshowcase.com/charmed.html&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dcharmed%2Btheme%2Bsong%2Bdownload%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26rls%3DRNWE,RNWE:2005-10,RNWE:en
    Scroll down and click the link. You can probably download the song using various download material, for example Limewire etc. It is avaliable on the first Charmed soundtrack.

    Where can I buy the Charmed soundtracks?
    They should be available at most good stores which have music in them (pretty simple really) but you can buy them online here...

    We could do two ways, read only the questions before reading the answer this way we don't see the spoillers. Or we could write in White all the spoillers that is on this board, this way the only way to see the spoillers would be by hyelight the words.
