The series is based on the Archie comic of the same name, but is a much darker adaptation than the kid friendly original. Satanic worship, dark magic, and blood thirsty monsters are in healthy supply as the half-mortal, half-witch Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) navigates between the mortal world and witchcraft world.
The first season of Sabrina and the holiday Christmas special, which was recently released on December 14, are both available to stream on Netflix now. Fans will have to wait until next year to get more of the series, when the second season is released in its entirety on April 5, 2019.
And yes, while Shipka owns a black cat like Melissa Joan Hart before her, it isn’t an animatronic puppet cracking jokes.
