There is certainly no premiere date still.
Because creation has not started out on the display, there’s no premiere day to mark in your calendars just yet, regrettably.
The Riverdale showrunner is penning the new collection.
Let’s hope for a Sabrina/Riverdale crossover episode—Riverdale showrunner and chief govt officer of Archie Comics Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has signed on to pen the approaching Sabrina series. In addition to crafting it, Aguirre-Sacasa will direct and produce the sequence, and he will be joined by fellow Riverdale collaborators Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Jon Goldwater, and Lee Toland Krieger.
Sabrina will characteristic new faces.
Melissa Joan Hart, who played the titular heroine in the initial says she feels “indifferent” about the new direction of the present but might even now be fascinated in acquiring her “fit” in the new collection in the foreseeable future.

We understood that Sabrina’s enjoy desire, Harvey Kinkle, would be building a comeback. Aguirre-Sacas tweeted a web site of the Sabrina script final October, which verified our hopes. This time around, he will be performed by former Disney star Ross Lynch, who not long ago showed us his dim facet in My Good friend Dahmer. In this edition of the display, Harvey is the son of a coal miner, Deadline stories, and he is blissfully unaware of Sabrina’s powers (just like in the authentic clearly show). It seems like he’ll continue to be the all-American high college boy we loved in the authentic Harvey was performed by Nate Richert in the ’90s comedy.
Other solid customers include Prospect Perdomo, who will introduce the new character of Sabrina’s cousin Ambrose to the globe, and Michelle Gomez as Sabrina’s trainer Mary Wardell. Just one more clue about the show’s dark facet arrives with the casting of Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood. According to Deadline, Blackwood is a substantial priest in the Church of Night, and has dark secrets that may well set him up as a villain.
Salem, the family’s smart-talking cat, was played by a puppet in the authentic sequence. It appears like he is heading to be a genuine kitty this time, though:

The reboot will be nothing like the primary relatives comedy.
The beloved ’90s sitcom was a mild-hearted spouse and children comedy but the new reboot departs from its comedy roots and veers toward darkish thriller territory, much like its companion sequence Riverdale. Aguirre-Sacasa said the new model “is a darker, extra macabre version of Sabrina.”
Melissa Joan Hart gave the new sequence her stamp of approval.
Sequels and reboots are generally frowned on but Melissa Joan Hart supports Netflix’s Sabrina reboot and gave it her stamp of acceptance though talking to Leisure Weekly previously in February. “I think they are executing it in a intelligent way—change it up, really do not make it the same,” she made available. “If you are likely to do the exact present, it in all probability would fall on its confront, but I feel what they are carrying out is likely the smartest way to reboot anything.”
And Twitter approves as perfectly.
