Chronology
Preceded by Sabrina: Friends Forever

Sabrina's Secret Life is a Canadian-American animated television series based on the Archie Comics character Sabrina, the Teenage Witch produced by DIC Entertainment and Les Studios Tex. It originally aired in syndication in 2003 as a sequel series to Sabrina: The Animated Series (and Sabrina: Friends Forever). The plots for each episode feature educational elements to meet the FCC's federal E/I requirements.

In the series, Sabrina is a fourteen-year-old teenager (older than in Sabrina: The Animated Series, but still younger than usually portrayed in the comics[citation needed]) attending Greendale High School. Chloe has moved away, and Gem Stone attends a private school far away from Greendale. Sabrina's new best friend is a girl named Maritza; additionally, Sabrina still has a crush on her friend Harvey.

The show also aired on CBS as part of KOL Secret Slumber Party on CBS, from September 16, 2006 - September 8, 2007, then as part of KEWLopolis, from September 15, 2007, and sees through September 12, 2009. The show was returned to new block called Cookie Jar TV, from September 18, 2010 - January 29, 2011, when it was replaced by Trollz and Horseland. However, all DIC references in these broadcasts have been replaced by Cookie Jar references.

Reruns of Sabrina's Secret Life aired on Toon Disney and previously in syndication on the DIC Kids Network.

In Germany, Sabrina's Secret Life is simply a third season of Sabrina, the Animated Series, both under the title Simsalabim Sabrina.[1][2]

Continuity changes[edit]

Although Sabrina's Secret Life is set during her high school years, Sabrina's magic is portrayed as weaker than it was in Sabrina, the Animated Series. Unlike the previous series where Sabrina made magic with a wave of her hand and an incantation, here she uses a wand to cast spells. Most of the original voice cast did not return for this series.

Characters[edit]

Sabrina Spellman: She is now fourteen years, and had grown and matured since Sabrina: The Animated Series. She attends high school and, secretly, has her courses of magic and witchcraft with Cassandra. Her character and personality are still the same, and she still has her romantic crush on Harvey.

Salem Saberhagen: He didn't changed in this series, as he still helps Sabrina with her problems. Also he's taken over Uncle Quigley's role as the voice of reason for Sabrina.

Hilda Spellman and Zelda Spellman: Sabrina's paternal aunts who help their niece with her increasingly powerful magical abilities and proper uses of magic. Although their personalities are still the same, their physical appearance has changed radically.

Harvey Kinkle: He is portrayed as more grown up and attractive than the original series. He has the same romantic crush on Sabrina and still doesn't know her magical and mystical secret.

Cassandra: She's Enchantra's niece and Sabrina's best friend-turned-enemy. She goes with Sabrina at the same witchcraft courses. In the beginning, she served as Gem Stone's replacement, but she gets kinder progressively. In the end, she and Sabrina become best friends again.

Maritza: She's Sabrina's new best friend, and Chloe's replacement. She's very similar to Chloe physically and emotionally but, unlike her, she doesn't know that Sabrina is a witch.

Queen Enchantra: She is portrayed much warmer, friendlier, nicer and kinder than she was in Sabrina: The Animated Series, and Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch.
