Sabrina: Get Your First Look at Salem!

at .  Updated at . Comments

Well, this is excellent news!

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina TV series will include a character most will remember from the ABC/WB TV series which aired from 1996-2003. 

That character is of the four-legged kind, and we're freaking out about it. Yes, it's Salem, and we even have a picture to prove it. 

Salem on Sabrina

The new series hails from Riverdale showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who is attached as a writer, director, and executive producer. 

"The hourlong drama reimagines the story of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age tale that traffics in horror, the occult and witchcraft, naturally," reads the official logline.

"The new iteration 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."

Mad Men actress Kiernan Shipka landed the role of Sabrina earlier this year, but the casting process is still underway for the supporting players. 

Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina!

The town of Greendale has featured several times on The CW's Riverdale, but it's still unclear whether the two worlds will actually collide when the show hits the air. 

Given that The CW is no longer involved, it could make things difficult to have the shows crossover. Stranger things have happened, but we will have more details nearer the time. 

While The CW initially gave the series a development deal, Netflix swooped in and gave it a production deal with a two-season commitment.
