Melissa Joan Hart played Sabrina the Teenage Witch on the popular series in the 90s, a cross between Reese Witherspoon’s Elle Woods and Elizabeth Montgomery’s Bewitched star Samantha. The show was, well, bewitching. At its good but mischievous heart was Hart, whose charm and twinkle made her magic more than believable. So when Hart told FabLife this week she was headed to a meeting to discuss rebooting Sabrina, the actress stirred a cauldron of enthusiasm and turned the talk show crowd into a coven real quick.
Hart swiftly walked back the intrigue, saying the project was nowhere yet — lots of rights issues in the way. But you can’t take back a spell once you cast it. If anyone should know that it’s Melissa Joan Hart. The Internet was put under a spell too by the possibility of Sabrina’s return. Those producers who are being prickly with those rights issues surely heard the applause, studio and virtual. If anyone can make it happen, it’s Hart. And we already know, cats have nine lives.
