We spent an embarrassing amount of our childhood fantasizing about waking up one morning with magical powers and finding a portal to the other realm through our laundry room. But this was mainly due to our obsession with Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
The show ended way back in 2003, and since then, we’ve caught an odd re-run here and there on Nickelodeon. But now, it looks like Sabrina is coming back with a brand new series. And it’s all thanks to the success of Riverdale.
But, fans of kooky Sabrina Spellman — played by Melissa Joan Hart — and Salem the talking black cat will be disappointed to hear that this remake is going to be vastly different from the original... aka it’s gonna be dark AF. And here’s where the Riverdale connection comes in. Both TV shows are based on original Archie Comics series, and thanks to Riverdale’s huge following, bosses at The CW are looking to create spin-off shows for other characters in the Archie universe.

The new series is apparently called The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (creepy, right?) and is based on the story of Madam Satan — Sabrina’s dad’s ex (you got that?) — who’s returned from hell to reap revenge on the Spellman family. A far cry from Sabrina’s teenage dramas at Westbridge High and her on/off romance with the adorable Harvey Kinkle!
