Horror-inspired Riverdale spinoff, Sabrina, is coming to Netflix

New Sabrina Series Gets Two Season Order from Netflix

New Sabrina Series Gets Two Season Order from Netflix

A planned spinoff of The CW's "Riverdale" centered on Sabrina the teenage witch has received a 20-episode, two-season order from Netflix.

Sabrina tells the story of Sabrina the Teenage Witch with a wicked twist on the story from Archie Comics.

It's possible that some types of crossover boundaries won't present too much of a problem: Netflix already has streaming rights to last season's Riverdale, and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Archie Comics' chief creator (as well as Riverdale scribe and showrunner), wrote the pilot script for Sabrina. The original plan was to have Sabrina show up during an episode of Riverdale before spinning-off into her own series. So, when will the Sabrina reboot be on Netflix? Under the new deal, Warner Bros. 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.

A project that was originally going to be developed for The CW has found a new home.

The feature is available for English-speaking users in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, South Africa, Ireland, and New Zealand. Social navigation platform Waze announced new navigation mode for motorcyclists today, available for both Android and iOS users.

A lot of the same creatives that helped bring Riverdale to life will also be bringing Sabrina to the small screen as well. Inspired by the comic book series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the show will reimagine the the story of Sabrina the Teenage Witch with a darker, more horror-oriented storyline.

There's a good chance that "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" could even end up becoming a bigger his than "Riverdale" itself - after all, there's an awfully big fanbase out there who remember the Melissa Joan Hart show with fondness. Expect Netflix to formally announce the release date sometime after production wraps on the first season.

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. As we've seen, Netflix is also willing to spend plenty of money on shows - which could mean a noticeable bump up in quality for the show.
