There are some similarities between Sabrina The Teenage Witch and Netflix’s new Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, but those similarities are few and far between. The cast of the original series might have caught on to that had they seen the frightening trailer, but hadn’t publicly shared their thoughts on the new series. Now, folks can see how Melissa Joan Hart and others from the original cast reacted to the series when Netflix reunited them and showed off some footage.
Caroline Rhea said it best: Kiernan Shipka is not the same Sabrina they knew on Sabrina The Teenage Witch. While she’s correct for the most part, Melissa Joan Hart somewhat disputed that claim when she revealed that she did do a scene as Sabrina naked at one point. Granted, these were likely two wildly different scenarios, as we don’t remember Sabrina Spellman disrobing and sensually making out with a guy on ABC or The WB.
Sabrina The Teenage Witch also didn’t have a killer scarecrow, which rattled Beth Broderick. It also led to her confession that Chilling Adventures of Sabrina may be too scary for her to watch alone, which is understandable. We’re guessing she wouldn’t be a fan of the new Zelda Spellman, then, who is one of the more unsettling characters.
While the classic cast all seemed uniform in their agreement that Sabrina The Teenage Witch and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina are two completely different shows, they all seemed to enjoy it. Of course, they probably weren’t trying to poke holes in the performances or anything like that considering they were all participating in a video being made by Netflix. If one of the stars was really harsh towards the show during this, it was probably cut from footage.
Their opinions on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina aside, the cast of Sabrina The Teenage Witch looks great. It certainly isn’t hard to see why rumors of a series revival were floating around a couple years ago, even if Nate Richert is suffering from a potential “Harvey curse.” Unfortunately, one would think the chances of that happening now are slim, although maybe this video is the beginning of talks towards some future guest-star appearance?
It’s hard to imagine how that would work out, although we’d assume each actor would have to guest-star as a character other than one they originally portrayed. Of course, we have no way of knowing if something like that could ever even happen, so for now, this video is the one crossover both shows share. Now can we have a video of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina cast watching Sabrina The Teenage Witch?
