Salem Was Almost A Dog In The ‘Sabrina’ Reboot & It Would Have Been Pawful

What a cat-astrophe!

Salem Was Almost A Dog In The ‘Sabrina’ Reboot & It Would Have Been Pawful Netflix / ABC

The Sabrina reboot, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, is already looking seriously epic and we cannot wait for it to drop on Netflix in October.

But we almost had a massive part of what we loved from the original series changed and we’re so glad they decided not to go through with it!

Salem is the cat we all know and love, who likes to cause trouble and keep us on our toes. 

But Salem was almost a dog in the reboot!



Well, it turns out that Kiernan Shipka, our new Sabrina Spellman, is allergic to cats!

The series’ show runner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, revealed he “got a call that says, ‘Kiernan is allergic to the cat.”

So, he then started thinking, “Could Salem be a dog?”

Thankfully, the answer was no and Kieran battled through her allergy while filming so we could all have a series true to the original. 

Kiernan told EW, “We keep at a safe distance.

“It’s like, ‘Actors That Didn’t Get Along in Shows: Kieran and the cat Hate Each Other.”

If you haven’t seen the dark new trailer for the show yet, then feast your eyes below!
