Time might fly, but some things never change. This is made very apparent with some new photos taken at a recent cast reunion of the stars of the '90s TV series Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. The titular star of the cult classic series, Melissa Joan Hart just might be a witch in reality as she doesn't appear to have aged a day. In a small collection of photographs posted on Hart's personal Instagram account, the actress poses with many of her familiar Sabrina colleagues, and if you're a big fan of the show, the pictures will give you the feels. You can take a look at them below.
"My life for 7 years was wrapped up in [these] people who hold a very special place in my heart," Melissa Hart says of her colleagues from the cast and crew of Sabrina. Clearly elated to be with her second family, Hart also adds: "People remember high school years and college [roommates] forever in most cases and this was 7 years so this is my other family!! So much love for these peeps!" In another post, Hart also says the reunion included 100 members of the cast and crew with everyone hanging out and reminiscing about "all things '90s, Magic and filling the gaps in the last 17 years."
Created by Nell Scovell and based on the original Archie Comics series, Sabrina the Teenage Witch first premiered on ABC in 1996. The series starred Hart as Sabrina Spellman, an appropriately-named teenager who discovers she has magical powers on her 16th birthday. Caroline Rhea and Beth Broderick co-starred as Sabrina's aunts, Hilda and Zelda, with Nick Bakay providing the voice of their talking cat Salem. Nate Richert and Jenna Leigh Green also starred as Sabrina's boyfriend and worst enemy at high school, respectively. The series ran for seven seasons with over 160 episodes by the time it concluded in 2003.
Sabrina has since been rebooted with a much darker take on the story with the Netflix Original series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. In the reboot, Kiernan Shipka takes over the role of Sabrina Spellman, and she has done well for herself with the part in her own way. Premiering on the streamer in 2017, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina proved to be a big hit for Netflix, prompting the production of a second season which premiered its first half just last month. The second half of the season is expected to arrive on Netflix sometime later this year.
Surely, these reunion photos will have some fans of the old-school Sabrina the Teenage Witch wondering if a potential revival could be on the horizon. Might we one day see the sequel series Sabrina the Middle-Aged Witch? It's a natural thought, given the current trend in movies and television to resurrect or reboot nearly everything that was popular in the past. Given the success of the Netflix reimagining, however, I wouldn't imagine there's a rush to revisit the original Sabrina. Still, the reunion photos are a lot of fun to look at.
