Netflix gives two-season order to Sabrina adaptation

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

So, when will the Sabrina reboot be on Netflix? Aguirre-Sacasa will still be executive producing the show now that it's found a new home on Netflix. But how the specifics might play out over the course of a two-season, 20-episode run - all while The CW, for its part, continues to unfurl more of Riverdale - remains to be seen.

The Sabrina the Teenage Witch spin-off from the CW's hot Archie show Riverdale is coming to Netflix. The original plan was to have Sabrina show up during an episode of Riverdale before spinning-off into her own series.

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.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is being written by Aguirre-Sacasa, with Lee Toland Krieger directing and Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros.

So uh, maybe don't expect a laugh track à la beloved sitcom Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

Rescue mission for Argentine submarine crew ends, search for sub continues
The Argentine navy said it has abandoned attempts to rescue 44 crew members on board a submarine that disappeared two weeks ago. The search for 44 sailors on board a lost Argentine submarine has ended, leaving nearly no hope for their survival.

Word is, likely based on the success of Riverdale on Netflix, the streaming platform gave producing studio Warner Bros. So far, Netflix hasn't said when the new show would debut, but shooting on the first batch of episodes is reportedly slated to begin in February, with the second season's shoot wrapping in October.

A dark drama in the horror genre, the new Sabrina series is worlds away from the bubbly 1996 Sabrina, the Teenage Witch comedy series starring Melissa Joan Hart.

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.

While THR focuses on the popularity of Riverdale as a strong incentive for Netflix to take the show all by itself, it also works to capture an audience not always well-served by Netflix's current library: millennials and younger, primarily women, and a rabid fanbase.
