Premise change

Sabrina Spellman, in this series, is a 12-year-old girl in middle school. She lives with her witch aunts, Hilda Spellman and Zelda Spellman and her black cat Salem Saberhagen. They all help Sabrina learn to use her magic. Most episodes are about the typical issues of middle school. They deal with Sabrina's not knowing how to use her magic or using magic wrong. Sabrina and her best friend Chloe often use magic for all types of things that they think are emergencies. These range from trying to fit into skinny new clothes to turning Sabrina's crush Harvey into a superhero. By the end of each episode, her magical abilities often backfire and Sabrina would learn that using magic is oftem not the solution to her everyday issues.
