Back in September,
Tonally in the vein of
see Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family, and the daylight world humans inhabit.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina TV adaptation is now moving forward, not at The CW but at Netflix, with the streaming service having ordered two seasons - a total of twenty episodes - into production.
Aguirre-Sacasa also created the CW series Riverdale, which is "a subversive take" on Archie Comics characters. He will be writing Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and executive producing the show alongside Riverdale executive producers Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater. Lee Toland Krieger, who has directed multiple episodes of Riverdale, will also be directing Sabrina and serving as an executive producer.
I didn't watch the previous Sabrina the Teenage Witch show, nor have I read any of the comics, but they certainly have my attention with this one.
