Please allow Sabrina the Teenage Witch (opens in new tab) to make all of your childhood dreams come true. ICYMI, the '90s sitcom is officially making its way back to our screens—this time as a Netflix reboot with an added bit of eeriness courtesy of Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who's responsible for CW's Riverdale. The new sitcom, originally on air from 1996-2003, doesn't have an official title yet, but it *does* have a main cast—including the role of Sabrina's aunts—which was officially announced today.

A few days after casting Wonder Woman comics star Lucy Davis as Aunt Hilda, on Wednesday Netflix confirmed (opens in new tab) Homeland star Miranda Otto will be playing Aunt Zelda. Mad Men star Kiernan Shipka (opens in new tab) will follow in Melissa Joan Heart's footsteps and play Sabrina, and it's sure to be epic.
