Sabrina's Secret Life (French: Le Secret de Sabrina) is a 2003 French-Canadian-American 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).
In this series, Sabrina Spellman is fourteen years old (two years older than she was Sabrina: The Animated Series and one year older since 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 Spooky 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.
