Cole would be defeated for the final time at the actor’s request.

Good-demon-gone-bad-again Cole Turner saw a lot of twisted plotlines over the show’s history, including his divorce from Charmed One Phoebe and his time possessed as The Source of All Evil. By episode 100, actor Julian McMahon felt that the character had told his story, and it was time to move on to other projects personally. Production agreed, and Cole was permanently killed off during “Centennial Charmed.” However, it technically wasn’t the last time fans would see the character. His soul returned in season seven, where the power of the Ancient Athame destroyed it. Julian McMahon would go on to star in many movie projects, as well as the 35th Anniversary Rocky Horror Picture Show in Los Angeles.
