Sabrina Spellman is back, getting a new TV spin-off based on the comic book series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. As fans of the ‘90s sit-com with Melissa Joan Hart may or may not know, Sabrina actually originated in the Archie comics franchise.
With the popularity of Riverdale, which re-imagines Archie as a dark brooding teenager, it only makes sense that Sabrina would be next to come up in the ranks. Originally planned to air on the CW episodes of Sabrina have now been picked up by Netflix. The streaming service has committed to two seasons spanning a total of 20-episodes according to The Hollywood Reporter. Unlike the ‘90s sitcom series, this new version of Sabrina is being touted as dark and akin to horror classics like The Exoricist and Rosemary’s Baby. Sabrina is expected to begin filming in February of 2018.
