The reaction video features Melissa Joan Hart, Nate Richert, Caroline Rhea, and Beth Broderick watching the new show and commenting on their former characters’ new adventures. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina features Kiernan Shipka, Ross Lynch, Lucy Davis, and Miranda Otto in the original roles, respectively.
“So this is not going to be very funny,” Richert, who played Harvey in the original series, asserts. Comedian Rhea, who played Aunt Hilda, echoes the sentiment by exclaiming, “It’s terrifying, this show!”
While watching a sex scene, Hart comments, “I was never allowed to take my clothes—oh well, I did run through a scene naked.”
The new series premiered on Netflix on October 26. It is based on a series of comic books of the same name that have been distributed by Archie Comics since 2014. The original show, which ran from 1996 to 2003 on ABC, was a comedy based on the earlier version of the character introduced to the Archie universe in 1962. While the original show is a sitcom, the new series pulls heavily from the comic books as source material, which is far darker and scarier than other representations of the characters.
