Sabrina the Teenage Witch Cast Reunites To Give Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Stars Some Advice
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is officially streaming on Netflix! We’re beyond excited, and it turns out, so is the original cast of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. When it comes to TV reboots, sometimes OG cast members aren’t too thrilled about their shows coming back with new stars (just ask Charmed‘s Holly Marie Combs), so it’s nice to see Melissa Joan Hart, Nate Richert, Caroline Rhea, and Beth Broderick give the cast of the Netflix reboot their blessing!
The OG Sabrina Spellman (Melissa), Harvey Kinkle (Nate), Aunt Hilda (Caroline), and Aunt Zelda (Beth) reunited to offer their “best witches” to their CAOS counterparts with an adorable video. Though the new series is very different, it’s touching to see the actors endorse the reboot — proving there’s no bad blood between the shows — and personally welcome the new stars replacing them.
Melissa, who played Sabrina for seven seasons, was the first to send her best to her successor, Kiernan Shipka. Donning a “Witches be Crazy” t-shirt, the actress offered her a bit of advice. “I just wanted to send my best witches to Kiernan Shipka,” she said. “By the way, from one Sabrina to the other, if you’re ever given a choice between a broom and a vacuum, choose the vacuum.”
With the Netflix reboot imagined much darker than the sitcom, Nate jokingly expressed concern for the new Harvey Kinkle, played by Ross Lynch, and wished him good luck. “I hear the new Sabrina is scarier and pretty damn twisted. I’m rooting for you, buddy,” he warned. “Stay alive!”
Caroline and Beth, also sent their “best witches” to the new Hilda and Zelda, played by Lucy Davis and Miranda Otto. Caroline, who was donning a witch costume, called Lucy “Hilda 2:0” and even referenced the actress’s role in 2017’s Wonder Woman. “And now I get to be Etta Candy,” Caroline said, leaving fans wondering if she’s being serious about a role in the second WW or if she plans on dressing up as the character for Halloween this year. Who knows, but it was funny nonetheless.
The cast then ends the video by saying, “From our coven to yours, best witches!”
