The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina premieres today on Netflix. If the characters seem familiar, perhaps you met them before in the beloved ’90s sitcom Sabrina The Teenage Witch starring Melissa Joan Hart. Many do not know that the original comics both shows are based on come from the Archie universe. And, in keeping with the modern era, this version of Sabrina is getting the decidedly darker Riverdale treatment.
In honor of the premiere of the new adaptation, the old cast of Sabrina The Teenage Witch wished the new cast their best.

We can’t get enough of Melissa Joan Hart, Nate Richert, Caroline Rhea, and Beth Broderick (aka Sabrina), Harvey Kinkle, Aunt Hilda, and Aunt Zelda, wishing their 2018 counterpoints, Kiernan Shipka, Ross Lynch, Lucy Davis, Miranda Otto their best.
Fans couldn’t get enough either.
I am getting the nostalgia feels

Aww, so sweet (and professional) of them!
I have really fond memories of 90s Sabrina and who I watched it with. I'll be checking out the reboot, but I'll always, ALWAYS, hold the biggest spot for the OG Sabrina cast in my heart 🔮🌟💖
