We all remember the wonderfully crap animated sock puppet thing that played Salem Saberhagen in the original Sabrina the Teenage Witch TV show. We remember him with love, with fondness, with bemusement.

Well, thanks to producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, we’ve got our first look at Salem in the upcoming reboot of the Archie comics adaptation, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

An actual cat? Even though Salem was occasionally portrayed by a living, breathing feline in the original (only in scenes where he didn’t have any lines, of course) we never thought we’d see the day he looked this good! So sleek, so shiny, so… real.
Sorry, original Salem, I hope this wasn’t too much of a blow…
Netflix’s The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will be a darker take on the original, set in the same universe as Riverdale.
OG Sabrina Melissa Joan Hart’s thoughts on the reboot? Indifferent. Maybe this new Salem will entice her.
