Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Shax's attack in All Hell Breaks Loose ended up differently? What if Leo had got there in time and healed both sisters? Well by reading Charmed: Reset Reality you can find out just that. At C:RR we go back to Season Four and start the season off completely differently. Guess what?

So watch us change history, watch us do all the wrongs right. Watch Charmed: Reset Reality!
With the Power of Four now in place, with the sisters powers at their strongest can the Charmed Ones finally vanquish the Source and can they stop others threats that come there way. Will the sisters finally find happiness? Can Prue find love after Andy? Will Piper and Leo get the family they want so much? Can Phoebe and Cole remove the obstacles in their relationship and can Paige fit in with her sisters? Find out by reading Charmed: Reset Reality.
Charmed: Reset Reality was created in the Summer of 2006 by Executive Producer, Daniel Taylor. Gathering a team of four others, they started work on the series and aired their premiere in October of 2006. Soon after the first four episodes, Producer and Beta Reader - Esmerelda dropped out of the series. This left, Taylor, producers Jackie Drama, Xenith and Head Writer Camillie Fourever.
The series is currently in it's fifth season and with it nearing it's end, we will hear conformation on whether the series will go ahead or not for a sixth season.
CRR orginially joined forces with the Online Virtual Network and the series came the networks first sydicated series. The following year the OVN shut it's doors and CRR then joined "from the ashes" network The Entertainment Network, where it has since began to re-air Season Four, and has been confirmed to run through to at least the end of Season Six.
Every Charmed fan knows how in September of 1998, in an old San Francisco Victorian manor, Phoebe Halliwell found the Book of Shadows in the attic and read out loud the incantation she released her and her older sisters, Prue and Piper's powers, and that from that moment on the Halliwell sisters became the Charmed Ones, the three most powerful witches to ever walk the face of the earth.
Every fan also knows how after discovering their destiny and true identity the sisters became known to every great evil in the world. Demons and warlocks everywhere were after them, but over the years the sisters have vanquished demons and warlocks, found love and lost it, learned life lessons, gained new powers, and bonded and became closer than ever.
They also know that many things happened throughout the first three years of the sisters Wiccan Lives. Prue was also with Andy throughout her first year as a witch but sadly he was killed in the middle of a demon attack. They also know about the trials and tribulations Leo and Piper went through in Season 2 before they were finally allowed to marry in Season 3.
These fans also know how Source of All Evil and the Triad sent demon after demon after the sisters including the great mercenary Belthazor and how his love for Phoebe finally turned his human side, lawyer Cole Turner, over to the good side. They also know how Cole betrayed his evil side by vanquishing the Triad and that after that the Source wanted revenge.
And as all Charmed fans know a little too clearly, in another attempt to kill the sisters The Source sent his right-hand man and deadly demonic assassin Shax after the sisters and to kill the sisters and everyone knows that at the end of Season Three, the Source got what he bargined for when he sent Piper and Prue flying through the Foyer wall, killing the oldest Charmed One.
All Charmed fans also know how the Power of Three was reconstituted in the premiere of Season Four when they found their half-sister, Paige Matthews, the hidden result of their mother's affair with her whitelighter.
Season Four is also when Charmed Reset Reality begins. Unlike during the series, Leo returns in time to save both Prue and Piper. The sisters have to find Shax and vanquish him to prevent him killing any other innocents, since Leo wasn't able to save Dr. Griffiths. The Source and Shax think Prue or Piper or both must be dead as there is no automatic backlash. But as the Underworld roar over their sucess, their hopes are shattered when the Source's Seer reveals Paige's presense.
Much like the show, the Source sends Shax after Paige, but when he comes to kill her he finds more than he has bargained for--Phoebe has had a premonition regarding Paige and now Shax finds all three Halliwell sisters alive. The sisters vanquish Shax and take Paige home after they saw her orb out the way of Shax' energy ball. But much like the show, when Paige is brought back to the Manor the sisters find that Paige is much more than an innocent ... she is their half-sister. Also much like the show, once all four sisters are standing under the chandelier, they became connected, so that rather than the Power of Three, they are now the Power of Four, with a new symbol, the quadretra. As on the show, as of that moment, Paige received her power to summon an object. Now with her help, the Charmed Ones are even more powerful then before and are ready to take the Underworld by storm!
Prudence "Prue" Halliwell played by Shannen Doherty: At first, Prue wasn't the happiest women in the world when she found out that younger sister Phoebe had released their powers. But over time she grew fond of it, to the extent that her life became all about saving innocents. Prue was with her childhood lover throughout her first year as a witch but before the two could get serious again, Andy's life was snatched from her, she was left broken. Since then Prue hasn't found love, however she has followed her dream of becoming a photographer and now works at 415 magazine after leaving her job at Bucklands Auction House. When Paige joined the family, Prue was not best pleased however she has come to accept her half breed sister. Now working along side her sisters to make San Francisco demon free, Prue has met up with Matt, a shifty character but the two get along well.
Piper Halliwell played by Holly Marie Combs: Middle sister Piper has always played meditor between her two sister Prue and Phoebe. And even though she was never as lucky in love or in work in her younger years, Piper now owns her own nightclub, P3 and is the first of the sisters to marry. She met husband Leo Wyatt when he became the sisters handyman at the Manor but after many months, Leo finally showed his true colors, he was a whitelighter. However even after a relationship with neighbor Dan Gordon, Piper and Leo married in front of family and friends. When Paige came along, Piper had to adjust to having another face around the house but like all family she loves Paige dearly, half sister or not. Piper and Paige have a very caring relationship but Piper, being the women she is wants to get to know Paige a little better.
Phoebe Halliwell played by Alyssa Milano: The third sister Phoebe is still as free spirited as ever but her sterdy relationship with her sisters and her boyfriend Cole Turner has lead her down the more straight and narrow. Mastering her power of levitation and advancing her premonitions into color, she is doing well on the Charmed front too. Now working for pysclogist Laura Brenton as receptionist she is going up the career ladder too. Escaping from the clutches of the Source, Phoebe returned in time to save half sister Paige from Shax. The two younger sisters get on very well and have a lot in common.
Paige Matthews played by Rose McGowan: Born to Patricia Halliwell and Sam Wilder, Paige is the youngest sister but because of circumstances the sisters was given up at birth to the local church. Paige's foster parents Holden and Madeline Matthews raised her like their own but died in a tragic car accident when Paige was around 18. After that Paige searched for her family, her sisters and came close on a number of occasions but when Paige was saved by the sisters the secrets were began to unfold. Now part of the Charmed circle, Paige has a long life ahead of her, hopefully anyway!
