It’s been 15 years since Sabrina the Teenage Witch went off the air, but now fans are getting to see a whole new side of the character thanks to the release of Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The new series is remarkably different from the classic ’90s sitcom — and we’re not just talking about the fact that Salem doesn’t talk. After reuniting the original Sabrina (Melissa Joan Hart), Harvey (Nate Richert), Hilda (Caroline Rhea), and Zelda (Beth Broderick) to give the Chilling Adventures cast a message sending them “best witches,” Netflix had the actors watch a bit of the new series to gauge their reactions.
The cast seems very into how empowered “Little Sabrina” is, though they do point out it’s a lot spookier and has less glitter (though they said it with a lot more screaming). It’s definitely a lot more sexed-up than they were used to. Most notably, Rhea points out that the new Salem is an upgrade from “the alcoholic rabbit wearing a hairpiece” he was on the original show.
