‘Sabrina’ reboot finally has a title, and now we’re even more excited about it
We've been getting bits and pieces about the Sabrina The Teenage Witch reboot series coming to Netflix, but were still anxiously waiting to learn the official title.
The wait is finally over, and we're already a little spooked!
Writer and director Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa shared the news on Twitter today, alongs with a picture of Kiernan Shipka who is playing Sabrina herself.
The series will be called Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the same as the original comics.
The reboot was originally intended to be a companion series to CW's mega-hit show Riverdale, but as we now know, the Sabrina remake found its home with Netflix. As reported by Variety, the show will be an hour long, 20-episode, two-season series on Netflix.
While it won't be a companion series to Riverdale, it will have the people behind the hit show working on it. The production team for Riverdale will be working on the reboot, along with Aguirre-Sacasa, who's Archie Comics' chief creative officer and Riverdale showrunner.
The series will be based off Archie Comics' Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina and will take on a much darker tone than the upbeat '90s show that we have come to know and love. According to Nerdist, the show will touch on more darker themes, giving a reimagined look into Sabrina's occult origins, by saying the series "finds Sabrina struggling to reconcile her dual nature (being half-witch and half-mortal) while protecting her family and the world from the forces of evil."
We're pretty excited about this new take on Melissa Joan Hart's beloved teenage witch. Let us know what you think about the new Chilling Adventures of Sabrina reboot in the comments below!
