The witch Sabrina returns with a dark version to Netflix

Nostalgia is on rise, also to content young grown up in Nineties. Sabrina, witch Stuff, teenage series that triumphed around world in mid-decade, will return to television in 2018, though it will do so with a dark turn to attract a new audience. The modern version of Archie comics character will be broadcast on Netflix — which has commissioned two seasons of 10 episodes each — and will be, as described by its creators, closer to The Exorcist and Devil's seed than to teenage and white drama of Novice Witch Which Melissa Joan Hart played.

As in original adaptation, Sabrina has as protagonist to this young, half human and half witch, who struggles to understand supernatural world that opens as she passes through world of maturity in her aunts ' house. Esotericism, occult and forces of evil will have, however, much more prominence in this version that takes as reference comic chilling adventures of Sabrina, a review of classical history as a horror drama. The comic strip, not published in Spain and only with six copies published since 2014, is located in Sixties, although it is not known if this will be respected also in television adaptation.

The screenwriter of comic, Roberto Aguirre-Alcasa (Glee, Carrie), will also be one who adapts blonde teenage Witch and now emo to small screen, with help of same team that launched Riverdale, producer Greg Berlanti and director Toland Krieger. Not in vain, at first this updated version of iconic character was to be relapsed into CW channel, in charge of modernized version of Archie Comics, an entire cultural institution in United States. Sabrina, teenage Witch was born as an Archie spin-off In 1962, to present fantasy and magic in adolescent universe after Second World War of Riverdale. In 1971 he achieved his own animated series, which followed up to four more adaptations ( last one in 2012), although his global fame came in 1996 with Real action series.

As original, this review is also born from pages of Archie, more specifically comic book Beyond Archie, a collection in which ideal American village is slid in a zombie invasion. The success of his approach was such between criticism and public that brand decided to create its own stamp of terror. Now, with Netflix as main banner of Riverdale television series (which updates myth with mysteries to Twin peaks for a young audience, with sex, murders and full of drama) in world, it's time to continue to take advantage of this universe plagued by Icons over 75 years.

Aguirre-Alcasa took months talking about possibility of joining both series: "It is a possibility, but it is difficult to mix both worlds: to introduce, in this world of mysteries, a supernatural element." I think re's a way to introduce Sabrina without that element, but she's a witch ... and Sabrina will always be darker. Riverdale is on side of river, and Greendale, where she lives, in or. There is this almost mythical idea that on each side re is a reality, explained this writer of Nicaraguan origin who is also creative head of Archie universe on all platforms. There are characters who never go out of fashion.
