This time round, Sabrina’s sidesick will be played by a real cat

Salem - New Netflix TV show announced

Salem Saberhagen is in the house.

Earlier this week Riverdale creator and Archie Comics cheif creative officer, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, revealed the first behind-the-scenes pic of the Netflix series Meet Salem!

Sabrina: The Teenage Witch show announced

Unlike the ’90s version, Sabrina’s grumpy feline BFF will be played by a real cat — not a puppet. Fans of the original might have mixed feelings about this, but Aguirre-Sacasa’s darker, deeper take on Sabrina may be tough to pull off with a furry little muffin on set.

“Ladies and gentlemen, meet #Greendale’s latest resident,” Aguirre-Sacasa wrote on Twitter. “All hail, Salem! #sabrina, #netflix”

Netflix’s Sabrina Spellman will be played by Mad Men star, Kiernan Shipka, while her BFF, Rosalind Walker, will be played by Paper Towns’ Jaz Sinclair. In Aguirre-Sacasa’s version of the Archie Comics staple, the young witch will channel The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina much more than the sweet, simple Sabrina that Melissa Joan Hart played on ABC’s ’90s iteration.
