Seems like Marvel is not the only comic universe knocking it out of the park!— and we all know we’re not talking about DC.
Netflix is bringing “Sabrina The Teenage Witch” back to our screens! Only that this time, the show will have a “chilling” twist.
The new series, based on the original graphic novel titled “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” has been picked up for two seasons of 10 episodes each. The dark horror/drama show will be developed by the team of the hit series “Riverdale”—also based on the characters of Archi—, with Robert Aguirre-Sacasa and Lee Tonland Kriege reprising their respective roles as writer and director of the pilot.
A statement released by Archie Comics on Friday details that the series will have a new take on the character’s origin, which makes us think that this time, Sabrina will be far from being that innocent witch played by Melissa Joan Hart from 1996 to 2003.
“This dark coming-of-age story deals with horror, the occult and witchcraft and will see 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,” Archie Comics said in its announcement.
Netflix also confirmed the news on Friday. “Sabrina is coming to Netflix and she might just out-brood Jughead,” the streaming giant tweeted. “Don’t @ me about talking cats (yet).”
We still know very little about the chilling series—there’s no release date confirmed and there isn’t even a tentative cast either—but we suspect that this remake of Sabrina will quickly become a new favorite… as if by magic!
