Melissa Joan Hart believes that rebooting Sabrina The Teenage Witch would be ‘hazardous.’ The 45-year-old actress had a blast working on the adolescent drama from 1996 to 2004, but she isn’t interested in reprising her role because she believes viewers would be dissatisfied regardless of what happened, and the show would be “over-criticized.”
Game Of Thrones Fear? LEGIT
She said: “I’ve never really wanted to go back to Sabrina. As much as I had a blast on the show, I think it would be over-critiqued, and I don’t think it would be successful. It’s kind of like the last ‘Game of Thrones’, right? Everybody has predicted for years how they think it should end, and by the time you do it, you’re disappointing so many people.”
“I do think we ended ‘Sabrina’ in just the right tone and just the right way, with enough of a closure but a little bit of a wink towards the future that I wouldn’t want to go back and revisit. We would never be able to get that kind of button on it again.”
Sabrina Returns? No
“It would always be out there to be critiqued, and I just think it’s dangerous with a project like this that’s become so loved over the years.” The actress also stated that she had “never” watched the show in its entirety.

According to E! News, she said: “You have to remember this about then, we didn’t have TiVo. The only way I could watch ‘Sabrina’ was if I was home on Friday nights, which I wasn’t because I was working, or they would hand me on the night it would air, I was allowed to get a copy of it on VHS.”
“So, unless I went home and popped it in the VHS player—which I wasn’t doing on my weekends off—I never watched it. So, I have a totally different perspective on the show than other people do.”
It Is Different For Me
Melissa doesn’t remember the storylines the same way fans do because the series was shot out of sequence.
She stated, ” I don’t remember it the way the audience does, which is kind of getting frustrating because I just don’t recall things the way other people do. I probably need to go back and watch 163 episodes, but every time I think about it, it’s weird ”
“Sorry witches,” Melissa posted on Instagram, the 45-year-old actress made the announcement, posting a snapshot of a plausible press release. “Someone made some fantastic artwork and even some of our cast and crew believed the viral posts but NO, we have no reboot planned. But I have to admit, they did a great job on the fake campaign and it got me excited to revisit.”

“Sabrina’s Teenage Witch,” the mentioned campaign, was supposed to follow Sabrina and her now-teenaged daughter on their adventures. Because the show recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, the bogus announcement gained popularity.
Even though she was fascinated by the premise, Hart stated that she does not have the authority to decide whether Sabrina Spellman’s narrative will be continued. “Sorry to disappoint. Best witches to all,” she posted.
