Two months ago, Netflix green-lit a reboot of Sabrina the Teenage Witch for two seasons. And now the OG Sabrina Spellman, Melissa Joan Hart, is sharing her take on the “totally different” revival.
During a recent interview with E! News, Hart explained that fans of the original show may be surprised (in a good way) when they watch The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. She said, “I think what they’re doing is smart, doing the darker version. I think it’s going to be more like Buffy the Vampire Slayer than the Sabrina that most people know.”
The 41-year-old went on to reveal that she won’t be involved in the remake, like, at all, considering her entertainment company was completely removed from the Netflix reboot. She added, “It’s an Archie comic, so the rights reverted from my company, Hartbreak Films, back to them. It’s a totally different show.”
Nevertheless, Hart is looking forward to seeing Kiernan Shipka portray the beloved Sabrina Spellman…and so are we.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will hit Netflix sometime in 2019.
