Netflix picks up new Sabrina the Teenage Witch series

Adjust Comment Print

The streaming platform has picked up a 20-episode season of the supernatural teen series, which had been in development at The CW since September. The series will be based on The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, a recent comic series that reimagines Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age series that delights in horror, the occult, and witchcraft. Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the chief creative officer of Archie Comics, wrote the script for the Sabrina spin-off. The Hollywood Reporter announced that Sabrina will be heading to Netflix and has already earned itself a two-season twenty-episode order. Both "Riverdale" and "Sabrina" are based on Archie Comics properties, and there presumably would have been opportunities for characters to cross over between the two shows had it landed at the network.

Similarly to how Riverdale plunged formerly wholesome milkshake-drinking teens into a storyline so dark it's practically Zodiac, Sabrina will take a more macabre approach to the subject material than has previously been seen on TV. Netflix's interest in Sabrina is not surprising.

After Netflix saw how people responded to Stranger Things' second season by making even more memes than the first, and presumably saw how much people talk about Riverdale weekly, why not shoot for the next big thing?

The character of Sabrina has yet to be introduced on "Riverdale", and an actress has yet to be cast. Inspired by the comic book series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the show will reimagine the the story of Sabrina the Teenage Witch with a darker, more horror-oriented storyline. Berlanti Productions will produce in association with Warner Bros. TV. Netflix recently partnered with Millarworld to publish comics, which, in turn, gives Netflix the rights to adapt those stories into shows and movies.

Fans of the 1996 Sabrina television series starring Melissa Joan Hart might find themselves thrown for a loop.

No firm date has been given for the show's premiere, but it is expected to drop sometime in 2018.
