  • Sabrina the Teenage Witch Is Heading to Netflix With 20-Episode Order

Due to the incredible success of Riverdale, CW has actively searched for Sabrina for some time now. And it's a big order, too: The streaming service has nabbed a two-season, 20-episode serving of the series. Instead, the untitled spinoff about the teenage witch, previously working under the title of THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA, is moving to Netflix. Television's Berlanti Productions, which is producing Sabrina for Netflix, has most of its scripted series airing over on The CW.

As Deadline points out, the shift from The CW to Netflix is likely a response to Riverdale's popularityon the streaming service. TV, with Aguirre-Sacasa, who penned the Riverdale pilot, and Lee Toland Krieger, who directed it, reprising their roles on the Sabrina pilot episode. The original plan was to have Sabrina show up during an episode of Riverdale before spinning-off into her own series.

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.

One thing is for sure: it seems, based on the description, this version of the classic character will be a total departure from the 1996 Sabrina, the Teenage Witch comedy series starring Melissa Joan Hart. Described as tonally being in the vein of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist, 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. The show is being developed by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the showrunner on the dark "Riverdale" series also based on Archie Comics' characters.

Now the hunt is on for the actress to play the lead witch. The release date has yet to be announced, but according to THR's sources, the two seasons of the Riverdale spinoff will reportedly "shoot back-to-back with the first batch filming from February to June and second from June to October".
