"TGIF" show creators and stars discuss what made ABC's Friday night programming so iconic
“There’s a sweetness to these shows,” said Sabrina the Teenage Witch creator Nell Scovell at an ATX TV Festival panel. Boy Meets World's Ben Savage added: "We didn't have social media so we were in a bit of a cocoon and we were just creating the show and having fun and exploring. I think there's a lot more pressure on kids today because everything they're doing is being scrutinized. We got to have a little more fun a little more flexibility. We didn't get as much interaction with fans but we got more freedom."

Melissa Joan Hart is “indifferent” to Netflix’s Sabrina remake, but she thinks “they’re doing it in a smart way”
“People kept asking for it, and they were already doing Riverdale, so I guess it made sense,” says the former Sabrina the Teenage Witch star. “I think they’re doing it in a smart way — change it up, don’t make it the same. 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.”

CW boss explains why the new Sabrina series ended up on Netflix
The untitled adaptation based on The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was supposed to serve as a companion to Riverdale, penned by Riverdale boss Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. But CW president Mark Pedowitz says: “There was opportunity that Warners had that Netflix made them a two-season offer. We understood that, and I wish Roberto and everybody really well as far as that goes. We have great development in Charmed and a number of other shows, so we’ll muddle through it.”

Sabrina the Teenage Witch cast reunites, discuss CW’s plans for a “darker” Sabrina spinoff
Melissa Joan Hart, Nick Bakay and Caroline Rhea were among the former cast members who reunited at L.A. Comic Con over the weekend. And one of the hot topics was The CW's planned revival of the Sabrina character. “I think our show was about magic and family,” Hart said of the potential spinoff, “and I think the new one — it sounds like, I have no idea — but the new one is going to be more about witchcraft, dark stuff. I think it sounds more Buffy the Vampire Slayer than it does Sabrina, so I think it will appeal to a different kind of audience and be a totally different show.”
