The Sabrina the Teenage Witch reboot is coming to Netflix

Based on the original comics, Sabrina will dive deep into the darkest corners of witchcraft, supernatural evils and the Occult

It was previously reported that Sabrina, the 90s teenage witch with two immortal aunts and a sarcastic as fuck talking cat, was going to be coming back to our TV screens 21 years after it first aired. This time though, the show would draw directly from the original comics – a much darker, Occult-inspired story. Now Netflix has ordered the new 10-episode TV series.

The show has been in development as a potential companion show to Riverdale, the Twin Peaks-esque teen murder mystery based on the Archie Comics. The original story of Sabrina Spellman comes from the same universe as the Archie series, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and in the comics, they cross over.

“This adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature, half-witch, half-mortal, while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit,” The CW’s original logline for the show read.

The original TV show, of course, was adapted into something much lighter – starring Melissa Joan Hart, the series ran from 1996 to 2003 with seven seasons. 

According to Deadline, Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is writing the pilot, and Lee Toland Krieger will also direct.

There’s no news yet on a premiere date, but Netflix has ordered two seasons for production. We won’t have any new quips from Salem, but expect some creepy supernatural shit, similar vibes to Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist and a deeper dive into witchcraft.
