Netflix Renews Stranger Things, Orders Sabrina Adaptation


Stranger Things is getting a third season on Netflix, which has also revealed a new series based on the Archie Comics character Sabrina the Teenage Witch but with a dark twist.

The Netflix original Stranger Things has become a fan favorite on the streaming service. The show received 18 Emmy nominations this year (with five wins) and was honored with the 2017 SAG Award for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series. It was created by The Duffer Brothers, who also serve as executive producers and directors along with Shawn Levy (who also directs), Dan Cohen and Iain Patterson.

Also coming to Netflix is an untitled Sabrina series that imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that delves into horror, the occult and witchcraft. The adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature—half-witch, half-mortal—while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit. Berlanti Productions is producing in association with Warner Bros. Television. An initial 20×1-hour order has been given.
