SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH Gets a 2-Season Order at Netflix



The one-hour drama is based on the comic "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina", which reimagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult, and witchcraft. The streaming service announced today that it has put in a two-season order for the spinoff of the CW's Riverdale. 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. The now untitled Sabrina series will be based on the Archie Comics' graphic novel The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

The new series about Sabrina the Teenage Witch is on the move. The CW, which also has another female witch drama in the works, a Charmed reboot with Jane the Virgin creator Jennie Snyder Urman, had only committed to development.

The new show will be based on "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" comic, featuring a dark drama/horror tone.

The PC version of the game, however, is horribly optimized and fails to maintain a consistent frame rate, regardless of hardware. If it does turn out to be true that large battleships and deadly helos are coming to the battle game, then. well, bonus.

It also makes sense to split Sabrina off into her own show, rather than introducing full on magic into "Riverdale" - the simple inclusion of supernatural elements could very easily derail the main show, even if it wouldn't be completely out of place in such a peculiar world.

Riverdale series creator/executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is executive producing and writing the Sabrina the Teenage Witch series for Netflix.

Sabrina's acquisition sheds light on Netflix's plan for the future: comic book adaptations. No word on when the show will arrive on Netflix, but filming is expected to begin in February 2018. If Sabrina follows its source material, fans should expect something spooky and dark, a departure from the classic Sabrina The Teenage Witch TV series from the '90s.

This new show will run for at least two seasons, and will be set in the same universe as "Riverdale", meaning that it's not impossible for characters from the hit show to turn up to get in Sabrina's way periodically.

And, as we've seen with its ever-expanded Marvel roster, Netflix has demonstrated an aggressive tendency to acquire and grow new stories told within the same universe.
