What do we know about the 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina'?

More than two decades after 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch' first aired, she's returning to our screens in a brand new original Netflix series entitled 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina'. Be warned though, Sabrina fans, the new show is certainly not for the faint-hearted.

If you didn't already know, the 90s series was based on the Archie Comics series of the same name; the same universe in which the new series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's 'Riverdale' exists. 'Chilling Adventures' is therefore more true to the comics, with the setting being in nearby Greendale as opposed to Westbridge.

Netflix's Vice President of Original Content, Cindy Holland says scheduling was a huge issue on the show's first season.

'Lost In Space' hasn't been renewed for a second season, but the co-creators have plenty of ideas if it does get the green light.

The reviews are in for Netflix's remake of classic 60s series 'Lost In Space', and it would seem the majority of those who have sat down to binge the debut season of the new show are enjoying what co-creators Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless have offered up. So where does the series go from here? No official order has yet been given for a second season, but we wouldn't be surprised to hear in the near future that it'll be returning - especially after that shock season 1 ending!

Even the series' co-creators are in the same boat.
