Fondly remembered by ’90s kids for “Clarissa Explains It All” and “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch,” Melissa Joan Hart may be ready for Clarissa Darling and Sabrina Spellman to be introduced to a new generation.
Appearing on the syndicated talk show “FABLife,” Hart was asked whether, considering the revival of “Full House,” she expected a reboot of “Clarissa.” “I am going to a meeting after this,” she replied, only to quickly wave off the squeals of the show’s hosts and the applause of the audience.
“It’s a meeting, hold on,” Hart clarified. “Take a step back. … They’re throwing around ‘Clarissa’ and ‘Sabrina’ ideas, but it depends on who’s going to give up rights, who’s going to do it, how’s it going to be done. It’s a lot of politics — we are nowhere near doing anything.”
Hart starred from 1991 to 1994 on the Nickelodeon sitcom “Clarissa Explains It All” as a teen girl who talked directly to the audience as she grappled with typical adolescent concerns. She followed that with the title role on “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch,” the comedy based on the Archie Comics character. That series aired from 1996 to 2000 on ABC before moving to The WB, where it ended its run in 2003.
A live-action movie that would recast Sabrina as a teen superhero was put into development in 2012 by Sony Pictures, but there’s been no public movement on the project since then.
