The ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ series, originally developed for the CW, has received a straight-to-series order at Netflix. The series has already been green-lighted for two-seasons and 20-episodes to start off with, according to Deadline.
The show, based on the graphic novel ‘The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’, is from the team behind ‘Riverdale’, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Berlanti Productions, and Warner Bros. Television. Aquirre-Sacasa penned the script for the pilot which Lee Toland Krieger directed.
Unlike the ‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch’ that aired from ’96 to 2003, this series will be a dark drama mixed with horror and is an origin story in which Sabrina finds herself wrestling with her duel-nature, half witch, half human. While Sabrina is trying to find her way she will fight the evil force that threatens her and her family.
Aguirre-Sacasa, Krieger, and Berlanti Productions will executive produce the series along with Sarah Schechter and Jon Goldwater of Archie Comics.
