Sabrina, the Teenage Witch: Then and Now
In September 1997, viewers first met a teenage witch named Sabrina. Starring Melissa Joan Hart, Caroline Rhea, Beth Broderick, Nate Richert, and more, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch ran for four seasons on ABC and three more seasons on The WB and picked up two Emmy nominations during its run. Decades later, the ’90s show’s legacy lives on.
Now, over 14 years after the show’s final episode, the beloved cast will be together again at Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con this weekend. EW has partnered with the con this year and will be bringing non-stop coverage all weekend long, with events such as Women Who Kick Ass: Sci-Fi Edition, featuring Katee Sackhoff, and a special tribute to ’90s favorite Quantum Leap. (Tickets to the three-day event are available at stanleeslacomiccon.com.)
