  • “Riverdale” Sabrina the Teenage Witch Spinoff Moves From The CW to Netflix

The Sabrina the Teenage Witch comics have found a new home at Netflix. The streaming service has rights to "Riverdale" and offered the first season when it concluded on The CW. 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.

Due to the incredible success of Riverdale, CW has actively searched for Sabrina for some time now. Sabrina's two ten-episode seasons will be shot back to back.

Aguirre-Sacasa wrote the pilot script and Arrowverse mastermind Greg Berlanti will be executive producing. The original plan was to have Sabrina show up during an episode of Riverdale before spinning-off into her own series. Netflix hasn't issued any information about how the series would be rolled out, but assuming we could see the two seasons in one calendar year looks like a good bet.

So uh, maybe don't expect a laugh track à la beloved sitcom Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

The horror drama series re-imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. But while that Sabrina was a light comedy, this new version is being described as much darker, akin to something like Rosemary's Baby or The Exorcist. Written by Riverdale showrunner and Archie Comics CCO Roberto Aguirre-Sacas, the to-be-released Sabrina show isn't going to be a lighthearted romp about a high school student who happens to have magical powers.

Now the hunt is on for the actress to play the lead witch. So far, Netflix hasn't said when the new show would debut, but shooting on the first batch of episodes is reportedly slated to begin in February, with the second season's shoot wrapping in October. According to Variety, Warner Bros. However, that list is likely to be reconsidered now that the show is moving to Netflix.
