The new show came to Netflix just days after it was announced that the popular series, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, has been cancelled. At the time, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told TVLine: "Working on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been an incredible honour from Day One. The cast, beginning with Kiernan as everyone's favourite teen witch, has been an absolute joy. I am beyond thankful to the crew, writers, editors, assistants, and everyone for pouring so much love into this dark dream of a show."
