And it's a big order, too: The streaming service has nabbed a two-season, 20-episode serving of the series. So, when will the Sabrina reboot be on Netflix?
While most other popular Archie Comics characters are in Riverdale, Sabrina the Teenage Witch had been conspicuously missing from the CW's Archie-themed drama series, so it made sense when the network announced in September that it was developing a separate series about the young witch.
The new show, written by Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer and RIVERDALE Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, will be directed by Lee Toland Krieger, and produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Studios. Like Riverdale, this show's going to err on the side of spooky.

Hearthstone's Kobolds and Catacombs Expansion Out Next Week
Blizzard announced today that Hearthstone's next expansion " Kobolds and Catacombs " would be released early December. There will also be new card mechanics including Spellstones , Unidentified Items and the first Legendary weapons.
Netflix's Sabrina is described as "in the vein of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist and finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal while fighting the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit", according to the Hollywood Reporter. Under The CW's umbrella, Riverdale has a decided head start on creating a well-established context for both tales. The original plan was to have Sabrina show up during an episode of Riverdale before spinning-off into her own series.
Sabrina was originally planned for a 2018-2019 schedule for the CW as a companion piece to Riverdale. THR says the CW and Warner Bros. 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.
And, as we've seen with its ever-expanded Marvel roster, Netflix has demonstrated an aggressive tendency to acquire and grow new stories told within the same universe.
The new series will be far from the light-hearted Sabrina the Teenage Witch that aired on ABC and The WB starting in the late 1990s.
