Sabrina the Teenage Witch is getting a reboot thanks to Netflix

You know the saying "old is gold"? Looks like production houses are taking that saying to heart. Netflix has been blessing us with a stable stream of rebooted shows like Fuller House and Gilmore Girls: A Year in The Life.

Now the streaming service has taken up a new project under its wings, and it's a reboot of Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

Originally, the show was supposed to be developed by CW. However, Netflix has its claws sunk deep into the show and has given the green light for two seasons of the reboot.

The show will be based on the Archie Comics' The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina as well as the classic 90s show starring Melissa Joan Hart.

The show is being conceptualized by Riverdale creator and showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Sabrina the Teenage Witch won't have your Melissa Joan Hart-level feel-good factor.

In fact, the show is slated to be a lot darker. Roberto, who is also the chief executive officer of Archie Comics, is also going to write as well as direct the series. He will be joined by his fellow Riverdale creatives Sarah Schechter, Jon Goldwater, Greg Berlanti and Lee Toland Krieger.

Replacing Melissa Joan Hart in the reboot is Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka. Miranda Otto and Lucy Davis play Aunts Hilda and Zelda Spellman.

Joining them will be Chance Perdomo Richard Coyle and Michelle Gomez. However, it looks like Salem, the family's sharp-tongued black cat, will be played by a regular cat and not a puppet.

The show doesn't have a premiere date as yet, so keep checking in with us and we'll keep you in the loop!
