Set ninety-seven years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, when a spaceship housing humanity's lone survivors sends one hundred juvenile delinquents back to Earth, in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet.
Reimagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina: the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. Tonally in the vein of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist, this adaptation finds Sabrina Spellman wrestling to reconcile her dual nature - half-witch, half-mortal - while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.Written by
Like Riverdale, the year in which the show takes place is intentionally never mentioned, so that the show can be simultaneously modern and retro. This is why elements of the town, schools, and much of the clothing in Greendale, is more reminiscent of the 1960s, when the source material is set, but there are also modern references, as well as cellphones and computers.

In several episodes, Mrs. Wardwell refers to her familiar as a raven, though the beak shape and call indicates that it is a crow. See more »
Fast forward (or skip) the highschool parts, and you got yourself a good show.
I came to this thinking it might be something like penny dreadful, but boy was i wrong.
The acting is above average, the cinematography is good, but i dont like the lens flares,and i like the dark side of this world.
Also like everyone has mentioned in the review, its filled with propaganda. which is the main reason that killed it for me.
i want to watch a show and be entertained, to forget the reality i live in, but this show shoves feminism, white supremacy, etc. into your face, political agendas are subplots in this show...
In short, i wanted more witches/devils/monsters but i got a soap opera with political undertone.
