One of the most talked-about series of the year is Riverdale, a unique retelling of Archie Comics. Unlike the friendly and wholesome comics we grew up with, Riverdale had a darker feel. Now, Sabrina the Teenage Witch (also from the Archie universe) is getting a reboot and it will look just like Riverdale. The best part? It already has a two-season order from Netflix!
Sabrina the Teenage Witch follows the adventures of Sabrina Spellman, a teenager who balances her secret life as a witch with school, homework, and her love life. The comic was adapted into a TV show starring Melissa Joan Hart as Sabrina and ran for seven seasons from 1996 to 2003.
The Sabrina reboot will be developed by CW and Netflix (also the same studio that developed Riverdale) and will be based on “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” story arc, set in the ’60s where the teenage witch has to grapple with the occult and the consequences of witchcraft.
There’s no word yet on the cast and the release date, but the two seasons will have 10 episodes each.
Could it be possible there will be a crossover episode between Riverdale and Sabrina?
