TWH – Many of the most beloved American television and films about witches premier in October, and that is no different this year. A new version of the popular 1990s show Charmed is scheduled to begin airing on the WB October 14. And, Netflix will begin streaming The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina October 26. These shows are capitalizing on the popularity of witchcraft in pop culture as well increasing awareness and even notoriety of modern Witchcraft practice in the U.S.
Both shows are eagerly awaited as Charmed was one of the most popular witch-based shows in American entertainment history, and was created during a time when modern Witchcraft phraseology was being incorporated into the narrative in a more or less positive way, even if sensationalized. As for Sabrina, she is one of the most influential, long-lived and popular witch characters in American entertainment history, making her debut in the early 1960s.
