Storyline

Sabrina Spellman (Melissa Joan Hart), a perfectly normal sixteen-year-old, is informed by her aunts, Hilda (Caroline Rhea) and Zelda (Beth Broderick), that she (and they, and her whole family on her father's side) are witches. She lives with them in Massachusetts while preparing to receive her witch's license. Along the way, she gets into many scrapes while figuring out how certain spells work. She also has to keep the secret from her boyfriend, Harvey (Nate Richert), friends Jenny (Michelle Beaudoin), and later Valerie (Lindsay Sloane), stuck-up nemesis Libby (Jenna Leigh Green), and the ever-suspicious Principal Willard Kraft (Martin Mull).

Trivia

Melissa Joan Hart didn't have to audition for the role of Sabrina Spellman and there were no other actresses considered, as her mother Paula was a producer of the show and owned the rights to Archie Comics adaptations. See more »

Goofs

Throughout out the series, it's clear that many of the actors/actresses portraying teenagers are actually in their 20s+. This is done as to not interfere with the schooling of real teenagers and to give the general viewing audience who are teenagers (or young people) themselves someone they can look up to. See more »

Quotes

Harvey Kinkle: A penny saved is a penny earned.
Salem: Don't eat the yellow snow.

Good high school teen show, but not so good college show
9 September 2013 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

When Sabrina Spellman (Melissa Joan Hart) turns 16, she is told by her aunts Hilda (Caroline Rhea) and Zelda (Beth Broderick) that she is a witch.

It's a fun teen series. The first year, I especially like her best friend Jenny (Michelle Beaudoin) and Mr Pool (Paul Feig). I don't know why they dropped Paul Feig, but it all worked out. He along with Judd Apatow created 'Freaks and Geeks'.

At least they got Lindsay Sloane and the wonderful Martin Mull. It's a fine high school series. But then they send her to college and it just doesn't work as well. Heck eventually she's not even a teenager anymore.
