Horror-inspired Riverdale spinoff, Sabrina, is coming to Netflix

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

Under the new deal, Warner Bros.

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. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who serves as showrunner for Sabrina's predecessor, will write the pilot for the new show.

"Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" was spunoff into its own comic book series after the character played a significant role in the comic series "Afterlife with Archie". Now, that desire has become a reality, and Sabrina is coming to Netflix.

The series will be based on the Archie Comics graphic novel Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, written by Aguirre-Sacasa, which focuses on Sabrina Spellman as a teenager in the '60s dealing with the occult and the Hellish consequences of witchcraft.

The show was initially put into development at The CW in September.

It also makes sense to split Sabrina off into her own show, rather than introducing full on magic into "Riverdale" - the simple inclusion of supernatural elements could very easily derail the main show, even if it wouldn't be completely out of place in such a peculiar world. 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.

Ever since Riverdale reimagined the Archie comics as a dark, sexy Twin Peaks-esque teen drama, there's been a growing desire to bring original Archie Comics character Sabrina the Teenage Witch into the mix.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sabrina films the two, 10-episode seasons back to back starting this winter and through the fall. 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. This isn't the Melissa Joan Hart series that's for sure.

No firm date has been given for the show's premiere, but it is expected to drop sometime in 2018.
