This will be nothing like the Melissa Joan Hart series, that’s for sure.
Thanks to the success of “Riverdale,” THR announces today that The CW is now developing a companion series centered on another Archie comics character, Sabrina.
It’s titled “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” set to be an hourlong drama that reimagines the story of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age tale that traffics in horror, the occult and witchcraft.
“The new iteration 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.”
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (“Riverdale”) is penning the adaptation of the 2014 comic series, with the show potentially set to debut in the 2018-19 TV season.
Aguirre-Sacasa will exec produce with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Jon Goldwater and Lee Toland Krieger, who will direct the pilot. Berlanti Productions will produce in association with Warner Bros. TV.
