Netflix gives two-season order to Sabrina adaptation

Netflix gives two-season order to Sabrina adaptation

The series' move is somewhat reminiscent to The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, originally picked up by NBC for a midseason run before Netflix stepped in with a two-season order.

Sabrina may not be coming to RIVERDALE after all.

Now that the two shows are on different networks, It remains to be seen if there will be any formal association between Riverdale and the Sabrina series. The streaming service made a straight-to-series order for a new Sabrina The Teenage Witch TV series, based on the Archie comics graphic novel The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. It aired on ABC for its first four, then moved to The WB (now The CW) for its final three.Season 1 of "Riverdale" is currently available on Netflix, which is credited with boosting the show's ratings in Season 2. As Deadline points out, it's likely the new series landed at Netflix because such a deal would allow Warner Bros. television to retain full ownership of the series, in contrast to Riverdale, which it co-produces with CBS TV. Inspired by the comic book series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the show will reimagine the the story of Sabrina the Teenage Witch with a darker, more horror-oriented storyline. Filming on the first batch of episodes is slated to begin in February. The show, which tells the dark origin story of Sabrina in Riverdale's neighboring town of Greendale, follows Sabrina as she tries to balance being half-witch and half-mortal while fighting against the evil forces threatening her, her family, and the world. According to the report, the show will be created by numerous same people who worked on Riverdale, with creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa writing the pilot and Lee Toland Krieger directing, just as the duo did for the previous show.
