The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina TV series heading to Netflix

Adjust Comment Print

Multiple outlets report Netflix has struck a deal for two seasons of the live-action series, with each season clocking in at 10 episodes apiece.

The Sabrina the Teenage Witch spin-off from the CW's hot Archie show Riverdale is coming to Netflix.

But now that Netflix has snapped up what The CW began with Sabrina, there'll be a waiting game until fans find out how much crossover, if any, Netflix has in store.

News of a Sabrina reboot first surfaced back in September, and the details were spellbinding, to say the least.

“Riverdale” Sabrina the Teenage Witch Spinoff Moves From The CW to Netflix

Just as Riverdale is a darker take on the classic comics series, Sabrina will do the same for everyone's favorite witch.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch is returning to TV, but this time as a drama on Netflix. The new show will be written by Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer and Riverdale Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, directed by Lee Toland Krieger, and produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Studios. Like Riverdale, this show's going to err on the side of spooky. Afterlife with Archie was a gore-filled story about what happened after Jughead begged Sabrina to raise his dog from the dead: a zombie plague unleashed on Riverdale. 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. 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. No word on whether we'll see the comic's villain, Madam Satan, in the show, but we wouldn't bet against it.

Hart played the witch from 1996 to 2003. According to Variety, Warner Bros. Television already had a list of actresses in consideration for the role, and now that list is being revisited with the commitment from Netflix.

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