Based on the Archie Comics series by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Sabrina is a dark coming-of-age tale centered on Sabrina Spellman as she has to balance a life studying the occult with the trials and tribulations that come with being a teenager. Initially intended to air on The CW with its companion series Riverdale, Warner Brothers ultimately decided to move the show to Netflix believing it would be a better option to avoid directly competing with the planned reboot of Charmed.
The pilot will be written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and directed by Lee Toland Krieger with the series being co-produced by Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television. The show will be executive produced by Aguirre-Sacasa, Krieger, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is currently in development and is expected to be released in either 2018 or 2019.
