The Netflix series is based on Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Robert Hack's horror comic, and will tell the story of Sabrina's occult origins. 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.

Netflix ordered two seasons (20 episodes, total) of Sabrina, according to the report.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was initially set to be a companion series to The CW's Riverdale. Immediately, Sabrina helps add content in the teen drama demographic, which is a popular area among Netflix fans.

It's not surprising that Netflix would be interested in the Sabrina project.

White House denies Trump made slur with 'Pocahontas' remark
President Trump used the name against Senator Elizabeth Warren during an event to recognise Native Americans as war heroes. This morning, Begaye appeared on cable news to discuss Trump's comments and how they were racially offensive.

"Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" was spunoff into its own comic book series after the character played a significant role in the comic series "Afterlife with Archie". So far, Netflix hasn't said when the new show would debut, but shooting on the first batch of episodes is reportedly slated to begin in February, with the second season's shoot wrapping in October. The CW, which also has another female witch drama in the works, a Charmed reboot with Jane the Virgin creator Jennie Snyder Urman, had only committed to development.

The character of Sabrina has been the focus of discussion since Riverdale's inception, when Aguirre-Sacasa indicated a strong desire to see the teenage witch show up in town and then ultimately lead her own series. Originally planned as the partner to Riverdale, The CW's hit series, The CW ordered a Sabrina series earlier this year.

No firm date has been given for the show's premiere, but it is expected to drop sometime in 2018. Tonally in the vein of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist, this adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature - half-witch, half-mortal - while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit. Netflix recently partnered with Millarworld to publish comics, which, in turn, gives Netflix the rights to adapt those stories into shows and movies.
