'Sabrina the Teenage Witch' stars wish 'Chilling Adventures' cast well

-Harvey explains to Sabrina that the reason he's so afraid of the mines is because he got lost down there when he was a kid and saw "The Goat Guy" (aka the Dark Lord).

While "Sabrina The Teenage Witch" was based on the Archie Comics series of the same name, Netflix's new show was inspired by the 2004 comic reimagining, also titled "Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina".

At the beginning of the show, Sabrina (half-human, half-witch) is asked to make a decision whether she wants to gain all the powers of a witch and renounce her connections with the mortal world by signing the "Book of the Beast", or remain in the mortal world with her freedom and keep her friends, but forget about her witch heritage.

Here is what the critics thought of the Netflix reboot.

Collider gave the show a glowing review, awarding it five stars and praising its pacing, world-building and "genuinely spooky moments and decent jump-scares".

Sabrina Spellman is back on our screens but this isn't the same teenage witch we've seen before.

In both versions, the main characters are the same. When Sabrina confronts Mr Webster, he says he signed a different book for the Dark Lord and began winning cases, which were the most depraved.

Variety points out the show's many varied strands and "vibes" with only a couple that are "much more successful than others".

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is now available on Netflix. Loved the original, and yeah it's a shame Salem doesn't talk, but this remake retains enough elements and does it's own rather brill thing with them.

Ms Wardwell (Michelle Gomez) casts a spell which freezes the school and lets Sabrina see the bloody girl who haunted Mr Webster.

Originally, I was going to do Sabrina's nightmare as she's trapped in a sitcom as an homage to the television show.

All 10 episodes of "Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina" will begin streaming on Netflix on Friday 26 October. "I hear the new Sabrina is scarier and pretty damn twisted", he says. I'm rooting for you, buddy!

Half witch. Half mortal. During the episode, Sabrina and her entire family are attacked by a nightmare demon who puts them all to sleep and sends them into a terrible nightmare from which they must escape. The Dark Lord seemingly subscribes to the ideology of "where there's blame, there's a claim" and demands Sabrina and her aunts Hilda (Lucy Davis) and Zelda (Miranda Otto) be judged and tried in front of the entire coven.

"New Sabrina is like Riverdale meets Buffy".
