Sabrina's Secret Life (French: Le Secret de Sabrina) is a 2003 animated television series based on the Archie Comics character Sabrina, the Teenage Witch co-produced by DIC Entertainment Corporation and Les Studios Tex SARL. It originally aired in syndication on the DIC Kids Network block in 2003 as a sequel series to Sabrina: The Animated Series (and Sabrina: Friends Forever). This was the final series to be produced by Les Studios Tex, as they ceased operations around the time the show ended.
In this series, Sabrina Spellman is 14 years old (two years older than she was in Sabrina: The Animated Series and one year older than she was in the Friends Forever movie, but still younger than usually portrayed in the comics) attending Greendale High School. Chloe and her family have moved away, Gem Stone attends a private school far away from Greendale and Uncle Quigley, Pi and the Spookie Jar have mysteriously vanished. Sabrina's new best friend is a girl named Maritza; additionally, Sabrina still has a crush on her friend Harvey. Although Sabrina's Secret Life is set during her high school years, Sabrina's magic is considerably less strong than it was in the original 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.
On October 7, 2002, DIC announced the series' production, which they revealed that the popularity of the live-action sitcom led the company to produce a new Sabrina cartoon to follow up on Sabrina: The Animated Series. DIC also confirmed that Sabrina's Secret Life would be shown off at MIPCOM 2002 for a fall 2003 release.
The series was first pre-sold internationally at Mipcom 2002. In November 2002, DIC announced pre-sale rights were sold to Super RTL in Germany, Televisa in Latin America, Fox Kids in Italy, Noga Communications in Israel and Saran in Turkey.
