Scholastic conjuring up a summer prequel novel to Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Scholastic is getting in on the magical action of Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. A listing has gone up on Amazon for an exclusive prequel novel to the series, Season of the Witch, by Sara Rees Brennan (Tell the Wind and Fire), which hits shelves this summer.

The subtitle of "Book 1" seems to indicate that this will be the first in a series of books based on the hit show.

Set in the summer before Sabrina Spellman set to sign the Book of the Beast on her 16th birthday, the novel finds the eponymous teenage witch coming to terms with leaving the mortal world behind forever. It also takes place before she's officially dating Harvey Kinkle, which means she's not sure if he likes her or not. On a suggestion from her cousin, Ambrose, Sabrina casts a spell on Harvey to find out, but the enchantment backfires when a wood spirit becomes involved.

Season of The Witch goes on sale July 9. Season 2 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina premieres on Netflix April 5. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa serves as showrunner for the series (which has been renewed through Season 4), just as he does on The CW's Riverdale.
