'Riverdale' Spin-Off 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch' Coming to Netflix

'Riverdale' Spin-Off 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch' Coming to Netflix

The CW has revealed that the spinoff series focused on Sabrina, the Teenage Witch has been picked up for two seasons, but instead of being on The CW alongside Archie Andrews and his pals, her show will be a Netflix Original Series.

Aguirre-Sacasa, Archie Comics' chief creative officer, has written the script for Sabrina, and will executive produce alongside the folks behind Riverdale.

The Netflix series is based on Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Robert Hack's horror comic, and will tell the story of Sabrina's occult origins.

The streaming service has given a two-season, 20-episode commitment to the series, which was originally developed at The CW as a companion to "Riverdale". The Sabrina series could be the first of many Riverdale spin-offs, with Aguirre-Sacasa saying before the show debuted that he wanted to "expand" the world of the series.

But now that Netflix has snapped up what The CW began with Sabrina, there'll be a waiting game until fans find out how much crossover, if any, Netflix has in store. In September, Archie Comics announced the series would be arriving on Riverdale's network The CW in 2018, but now the untitled series has found a new home on Netflix.

In the TV realm, a lot has been made about how big Riverdale got not during its first season, but in between its first and the currently-airing second. The character had her own live-action sitcom starting in 1996, with Melissa Joan Hart in the role. No word on if that plan has changed now that the show has jumped from The CW to Netflix.

"This dark coming-of-age story deals with horror, the occult, and witchcraft and will see Sabrina struggle to reconcile her dual nature of being half-witch and half-mortal while protecting her family and the world from the forces of evil", Archie Comics said in their announcement.

With Marvel series moving away from streaming services in the future due to the Disney streaming service ambitions, Netflix would be wise to capitalize on the Archie universe.
