Netflix picks up new Sabrina the Teenage Witch series

“Riverdale” Sabrina the Teenage Witch Spinoff Moves From The CW to Netflix

It's not surprising that Netflix would be interested in the Sabrina project.

The series' move is somewhat reminiscent to The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, originally picked up by NBC for a midseason run before Netflix stepped in with a two-season order.

The new series about Sabrina the Teenage Witch is on the move.

The relationship between Riverdale and Netflix has already been mutually beneficial, with the viewership of the CW series quadrupling during season 2 after the first season of the teen noir became available to stream online.

The Sabrina the Teenage Witch spin-off from the CW's hot Archie show Riverdale is coming to Netflix. Lee Toland Krieger will direct and executive produce with Aguirre-Sacasa, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater. The original plan was to have Sabrina show up during an episode of Riverdale before spinning-off into her own series. 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.

After Netflix saw how people responded to Stranger Things' second season by making even more memes than the first, and presumably saw how much people talk about Riverdale weekly, why not shoot for the next big thing?

This won't be the first live-action take on Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Under the new deal, Warner Bros.

Netflix's Sabrina is described as "in the vein of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist and finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal while fighting the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit", according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Hart played the witch from 1996 to 2003. Written by Riverdale showrunner and Archie Comics CCO Roberto Aguirre-Sacas, the to-be-released Sabrina show isn't going to be a lighthearted romp about a high school student who happens to have magical powers. However, that list is likely to be reconsidered now that the show is moving to Netflix.
