“I just wanted to send my ‘best witches’ to Kiernan Shipka — aka the new Sabrina Spellman. By the way, from one Sabrina to the other, if you’re ever given a choice between a broom and a vacuum, choose the vacuum.”
Nate Richert, 40, also wished Ross Lynch, good luck for his role as Harvey Kinkle:
“I hear the new Sabrina is scarier and pretty damn twisted, I’m rooting for you, buddy. Stay alive!”
Next up is Caroline Rhea, 54, who played Sabrina's, Aunt Hilda. In the clip, the actress is seen wearing an adorable witch costume to wish actress Lucy Davis, the best of luck.
She jokes that she now gets to be Etta Candy, referring to Davis' role as Steve Trevor's secretary in 2017's "Wonder Woman." The last one to send her wishes is Beth Broderick, 59.
Broderick wishes Miranda Otto well in playing Aunt Zelda in the reboot. The group ends their recording by saying:
"From our coven to yours, Best witches!"
Earlier this month, Netflix released a full-length trailer for the new 10-episode series. The new show retells the story of Sabrina Spellman, a half-mortal/half-witch teenager.
Spellman is forced to choose between a life of witchcraft with her family or life as a normal human as her 16th birthday approaches. The series was written by "Riverdale" creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
He also acts as an executive producer. The new show has been described as a "dark, coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft."
“Sabrina the Teenage Witch” is an American sitcom based on the “Archie Comics” series of the same name. The show premiered on September 27, 1996, on ABC.
It had over 17 million viewers.
