In the continued trend of rebooting beloved classics, Sabrina the Teenage Witch is next in line.

And while yes, we would love more sassy comments from Salem, we do have to wonder what the original star of the ABC sitcom thinks of the new programme, which will be a darker retelling of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comics.

Entertainment Weekly asked Melissa Joan Hart, who played Sabrina on the iconic show, for her thoughts on the new adaptation.

'Indifferent, really,' the mum-of-three replied simply.

Her apathy doesn't mean she wouldn't make a cameo on the show, which is helmed by Riverdale executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Greg Berlanti.

'Never say never, but it would depend on the character they wrote,' the 41-year-old said of appearing on the Untitled Sabrina Project.

'I just don’t know where I would fit in,' she said honestly. 'I would definitely take a look at the material if they sent it along.'

And while the Drive Me Crazy actress has moved on to different projects (she's directing an episode of The Goldbergs this month), she commends the new show's different direction.

'People kept asking for it, and they were already doing Riverdale, so I guess it made sense,' Melissa said of the remake, which will star Mad Men actress Kiernan Shipka.

'I think they’re doing it in a smart way — change it up, don’t make it the same,' she noted.

The reboot will be more of a dark coming-of-age story focusing on Sabrina grappling with her identity as a half-witch, half-mortal.

'If you’re going to do the same show, it probably would fall on its face, but I think what they’re doing is probably the smartest way to reboot something.'



So the internet has pretty much decided that there will be a Sabrina the Teenage Witch reboot series that has not been confirmed by anyone at all. 

And still a suspicious (and probably photoshopped) 'poster' for the new series has been doing the rounds on social media and people are really excited about it. 

The poster shows Melissa Joan Hart standing with a younger blonde actress with a caption reading: "Sabrina's Teenage Witch" as well as the ABC logo. 

While there has been no confirmation from the actress herself or the TV network, Twitter believes it and who know what could happen if Twitter believes.

Another factor that may lead fans into believing there is going to be a reboot series is that Melissa has been sharing some throwback pictures from her days on the series. 

So yeah, dare to dream world! 

Still we'll just have to wait and see how this one plays out:



Melissa Joan Hart has admitted to using drugs in the past during an interview with Giulina Rancic for E!

When asked by Giuliana about her good girl image on Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Melissa explains: “It wasn’t that I wasn’t a bad girl. It’s that I never got caught.”

She also admitted to using a range of drugs from marijuana to ecstasy: “I experimented with weed, ecstasy, mushroom and mescaline for about a year and half.”

We are glad that her drug-use is behind her and that she came through her wild days intact!
