Melissa Joan Hart gives us the truth about the Sabrina The Teenage Witch reboot!

scandal 08/10/2021

We were getting our wands ready to cast ourselves back to our childhood!

However, on Thursday, September 30, Melissa Joan Hart, who played the role of Sabrina Spellman herself, put the revival rumours to rest.

"Sorry witches," she wrote on Instagram. "Someone made some fantastic looking artwork and even some of our cast and crew believed the viral posts but NO, we have no reboot planned."

For those who may have missed it, the post is referring to some fan-fiction that rebranded the series as ‘Sabrina's Teenage Witch’. 

The rumoured reboot was said to follow Sabrina [Hart] and her teenage daughter, according to a clever slogan that read, "Like mother, like daughter." 

It seemed pretty legit so it's no surprise that many were ready to put on their witch hats and wands to prepare.

This viral stunt was very well timed, as it came about during the original show's 25th anniversary. 

Sabrina the Teenage Witch first aired on ABC on September 27, 1996, and went on to air for seven seasons.

Hart shared a tribute on Instagram to honour this milestone. "The little engine that could we called it since it was in the shadows of the largely anticipated show #Clueless," she wrote, "but it persevered and we got to steal @reddonovan to come over to our fun cast. Tons of talented guest stars, musical acts and magic tv tricks over the years. Full of friendships and crazy memories, it was an incredible ride to be sure!"

Although there is currently no reboot in the works, Hart did admit that the fake campaign got her excited about the idea of a revival saying, “sadly it's not up to me, it's up to whoever owns the rights which is probably #ArchieComics or @cbs network who owns Viacom @viacomcbs."

We still have our fingers and toes crossed for this one!

Come on Archie Comics, we are looking at you!
