Netflix is currently producing a dark reboot of 1996-2003 network television series, Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Instead of comedy, the reboot titled: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will embody just what the title says: chilling adventures. The show is currently filming and it set to stream on Netflix sometime this year. A second season has already been confirmed to satisfy anyone who wishes to binge the show.
The show was reportedly initially developed for a Riverdale spinoff. As of now, the reboot will take place in the Riverdale universe, however, the subject matter will be the original coming of age story. Instead of a lighthearted, snarky, comedy, like the 1996 television series, it will be based on the Archie Comics series, "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina".
The subject matter on each medium, comedy or horror, are all the same: a coming of age story of a teenage witch. Sabrina struggles to find a balance between her life as a mortal that includes standard highschool life and her mortal boyfriend, Harvey, and her life as a witch with her Aunt Hilda and Zelda.
