Netflix Lands A New 'Dark' Reboot Of 'Sabrina The Teenage Witch'

It's official: Netflix is about to get its very own dose of witchcraft thanks to one Sabrina Spellman, the half-witch who the '90s kids among you will remember from hit sitcom Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

As the Hollywood Reporter has revealed, the platform has just ordered not one, but two seasons of the new "dark" adaptation of the original Sabrina comics. That adds up to around twenty episodes which we're hoping means plenty of screen time for Salem, Sabrina's sassy feline sidekick.

The Sabrina reboot was initially in the works at The CW and was envisaged as a "companion series" for Riverdale, with both series taking place in the same universe. As it goes, you may have caught Archie and the gang refer to Greendale, which Sabrina fans will remember is the fictional town where the Spellman family is based. 

Set to be quite unlike the original teen-show, the new horror-infused adaptation has been likened to the likes of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist.

For the moment, we're not sure how Netflix got its hands on the series nor whether crossover episodes between the shows are being planned out, but it is worth noting that taking the lead off-camera will be Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. 

Sabrina is also set to draw inspiration from recent comic The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which Sacasa penned. Filming of the series is set to kick in February 2018 but no release date has been hinted at yet.
