20 Shows That Paved The Way For Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina
Sabrina: The Teenage Witch
It’s about to get cyclical up in here. Chilling Adventures is based on the 2014 Archie Horror comic of the same name, which was itself based on Archie Comics’ original Sabrina the Teenage Witch series from 1962. Less than a decade after Sabrina Spellman was first introduced in the comics, CBS created a 31-episode animated series called The Sabrina the Teenage Witch Show, which really has nothing to do with the beloved ’90s sitcom other than sharing source material. The live-action Sabrina the Teenage Witch supernatural TV show we know and love was, however, developed from a 1996 made-for-TV movie of the same name starring Melissa Joan Hart that shared little else with the eventual TV series, which itself was compared heavily to Bewitched. It all comes full circle! Chilling Adventures doesn’t share much with the Sabrina we grew up watching, but Sabrina the Teenage Witch popularized the character for our generation, and at least in part led to Chilling Adventures becoming the hit it is today.
