[Streaming] Netflix Orders 20 Episodes of Series Based Off Archie Comics’ Sabrina the Teenage Witch

NETFLIX ANNOUNCES UNTITLED SABRINA SERIES

BASED ON THE ARCHIE COMICS GRAPHIC NOVEL “THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA

The UNTITLED SABRINA SERIES imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. Tonally 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.

Based on the Archie Comics characters and coming on the heels of the success of Riverdale, which is also based on characters from Archie Comics.
