The first photo of Salem the cat from Netflix‘s new Sabrina The Teenage Witch reboot has been revealed. Scroll below to see.
Last year, the streaming service confirmed it was producing a new Sabrina-focused series to serve as a companion show to Riverdale.
The original 90s Sabrina the Teenage Witch TV show was based on an Archie Comics series of the same name, and the new show will be based on the more recent – and much darker – Archie Comics series, The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina.
Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has now shared a picture of the cat that is set to portray Salem. “Ladies and gentlemen, meet #Greendale’s latest resident. All hail, Salem!”, he wrote.

The as-yet-untitled Netflix series is expected to premiere later this year. It was reported last year that production would begin in Vancouver in February 2018.
Mad Men star Kiernan Shipka has been cast to play Sabrina Spellman in the show. Shipka portrayed Sally Draper in Mad Men from 2007 to 2015.
“We’re all such huge fans of Kiernan’s work that when we started talking about who this new incarnation of Sabrina could be, her names was on everyone’s wish list,” Aguirre-Sacasa said of Shipka’s casting.
Riverdale creator Aguirre-Sacasa has also teased the show, describing it as “fantastic and chilling”.
