Watch out Sabrina the Teenage Witch fans for this surprising turn of events.
The show’s reboot is officially happening, which means that everyone’s favorite teenage witch is finally coming back to TV, but at Netflix instead of CW.
When the reboot was in its initial stages of development, the only network that was involved was CW. However, it was the streaming giant that announced that it will be the home for a small-screen adaptation of the graphic novel The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
Netflix confirmed that they handed out a two season, 20-episode straight-to-series order to a still untitled reboot. The network took to Twitter to announce the news writing, “Sabrina is coming to Netflix and she might just out-brood Jughead. Don’t @ me about talking cats (yet).”
Penning the script is chief creative officer Archie Comics Aguirre-Sacasa. It was said that this adaptation reimagine Sabrina “as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. Tonally in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, 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.”
No word yet on who will play Sabrina, but an announcement is to be expected in the near future.
