Sabrina the Teenage Witch Is Heading to Netflix With 20-Episode Order

Adjust Comment Print

According to Deadline, "Sabrina" will have a two-season order of 20 episodes, and its exact title is still to be determined. Many, including myself, found Riverdale streaming on Netflix and binged the entire series.

Apparently, Netflix wants to move fast on the series saying that the seasons would shoot back-to-back with the first filming from February to June and the second June to October.

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

Netflix has picked up a show based on the character of Sabrina the teenage witch - but don't expect it to bear much resemblance to "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch".

Ever since Riverdale reimagined the Archie comics as a dark, sexy Twin Peaks-esque teen drama, there's been a growing desire to bring original Archie Comics character Sabrina the Teenage Witch into the mix.

Aguirre-Sacasa, Archie Comics' chief creative officer, has written the script for Sabrina, and will executive produce alongside the folks behind Riverdale. Like Riverdale, this show's going to err on the side of spooky. The dark coming-of-age story deals with horror, the occult, and witchcraft, and sees Sabrina struggle to reconcile her dual nature of being half-witch and half-mortal while protecting her family and the world from the forces of evil. Even The Hollywood Reporter makes note of it after reporting that rather than going to The CW, as initially reported, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina - or something else, as THR calls it "untitled" - will now become a Netflix Original.

The show will be titled "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina", no doubt a decision that was made to really hammer home the idea that this ain't your mommy's Sabrina, but rather, an extension of the same weird universe that features Archie having statutory affairs with his teachers in between classes. Under The CW's umbrella, Riverdale has a decided head start on creating a well-established context for both tales. The Sabrina series is set up under Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros.

Fans of the 1996 Sabrina television series starring Melissa Joan Hart might find themselves thrown for a loop. Netflix recently partnered with Millarworld to publish comics, which, in turn, gives Netflix the rights to adapt those stories into shows and movies.

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