What It's About

The series is being described as "a dark coming-of-age tale that traffics in horror, the occult, and witchcraft." So, basically, American Horror Story: Coven-lite? According to The Hollywood Reporter, it is supposed to be a cross between Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist and will see Sabrina "wrestling to reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal while fighting the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit."


The Episode Count

Netflix granted a two-season, 20-episode, straight-to-series order for the Sabrina spinoff (aka two 10-episode seasons).
