Witchcraft? Who said anything about witchcraft?
Well, our favorite former teen witch certainly did. Sabrina the Teenage Witch icon Melissa Joan Hart exclusively revealed her biggest confessions, behind-the-scenes memories and favorite celebrity guest stars in honor of the series' 25th anniversary this year.
Based on the Archie Comics series, Sabrina first premiered in 1996 on ABC, later moved to the WB and ran for a total of seven seasons before concluding in 2003. The ensemble cast featuring Nate Richert, Beth Broderick, Caroline Rhea and Nick Backay voicing sassy cat Salem, made for a true family both on and off-screen.
"Right before the pandemic hit, I was able to put together a quick reunion for the crew, where we took over a coffee shop, had some appetizers, had some drinks," Melissa reminisced of a Feb. 2020 party to celebrate 17 years since the show ended. "The cast, even though we're all in our 40s now, acted like we were still the kids on set and decided to go out all night as if we were still in our 20s. It was funny being back in that place, we all kind of reverted back to our old roles."
Despite wishing for more cast and crew parties in her future, Hart clarified why those reboot rumors are, unfortunately, false—despite a deceptively good fan-fiction art pitching a mother-daughter spin-off titled Sabrina's Teenage Witch.
"It looked so authentic that even my makeup artist called me and said, 'Is this true? Because if it is, I'll come back,'" Melissa joked. "Especially when some of the crew started reaching out, they were like, 'Can we do this?' And I was like, 'If we got to work together and be together for a few years, that would be awesome.'"
However, returning to the original series would be a "dangerous" decision. "As much as I had a blast on the show, I think [a reboot] would be over-critiqued," the upcoming Mistletoe in Montana star dished. "I've never really wanted to go back to Sabrina."
Now, as Halloween season approaches, we're looking to hop on our broomsticks and relive the top Sabrina moments—through Melissa's eyes. Which '90s heartthrob made the best guest star? How many episodes has Melissa seen of her own show? Did she even enjoy playing Sabrina?
