Sabrina the Teenage Witch Series Coming to Netflix

Sabrina

The show is being developed by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the showrunner on the dark "Riverdale" series also based on Archie Comics' characters.

Word is, likely based on the success of Riverdale on Netflix, the streaming platform gave producing studio Warner Bros. The now untitled Sabrina series will be based on the Archie Comics' graphic novel The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

The relationship between Riverdale and Netflix has already been mutually beneficial, with the viewership of the CW series quadrupling during season 2 after the first season of the teen noir became available to stream online. According to the report, the show will be created by numerous same people who worked on Riverdale, with creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa writing the pilot and Lee Toland Krieger directing, just as the duo did for the previous show.

In the introduction to Chilling Adventures' original collected edition, Aguirre-Sacasa said this of the comics' tone: "If Afterlife with Archie was about Lovecraft and zombies and body horror, Sabrina would be more psychological, a bit more subtle (but only a bit), a bit more sexual (as stories about witches often are)".

Sabrina's acquisition sheds light on Netflix's plan for the future: comic book adaptations.

The project started as a pilot in development for The CW for next season.

The new series about Sabrina the Teenage Witch is on the move. Originally planned as the partner to Riverdale, The CW's hit series, The CW ordered a Sabrina series earlier this year.

"UNTITLED SABRINA SERIES imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft", Netflix revealed in a press release.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sabrina films the two, 10-episode seasons back to back starting this winter and through the fall. If Sabrina follows its source material, fans should expect something spooky and dark, a departure from the classic Sabrina The Teenage Witch TV series from the '90s. But producer Greg Berlanti loves a bit of stunt casting when called for (See: original movie Supergirl Helen Slater and former TV Superman Dean Cain as Kara Danvers' parents on Supergirl), so don't be surprised if Melissa Joan Hart gets some kind of role on this new series. A premiere date for the show has not been announced yet.
