Sabrina The Teenage Witch is making its way back to TV and this time it won’t be a kids comedy series! It will be a full-on horror show in the same vein as Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist.
The CW has put in development The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina, eyed as a companion series to Riverdale for the 2018-19 season. It comes from the same team as Riverdale: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. TV, with Aguirre-Sacasa, who penned the Riverdale pilot, and Lee Toland Krieger, who directed it, reprising their roles on the Sabrina pilot.A dark drama in the horror genre,
The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina is worlds away from the bubbly 1996 Sabrina, the Teenage Witch comedy series starring Melissa Joan Hart. The new project reimagines 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. This adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature — half-witch, half-mortal — while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.
This could be interesting, imagine a Buffy The Vampire Slayer series only with a witch. Could it work? I think so. We’ll be following this one closely as well and will bring you guys any developments that happen.
