In 1997, Volume 2 was introduced. This series ran for 32 issues, between 1997 and December 1999. The new series incorporated elements from Sabrina the Teenage Witch (1996 TV series), including modernized fashions and appearances for the aunts, Sabrina's last name and Salem's personality and backstory.
Starting in January 2000, Archie rebooted the Sabrina the Teenage Witch comics series from #1, this time based upon the animated series (the final issue of the 1997-1999 series had acted as a transition between the two adaptations). This new title was simply titled Sabrina and lasted for 37 issues; issue #38, published in late 2002, again acted as a transition issue, as the series was re-titled Sabrina The Teenage Witch and resumed the conventional high school setting. However, elements of the live-action sitcom (Salem's backstory, the modernized appearances of Hilda and Zelda) were retained, along with the name of Sabrina's hometown (Greendale) from Sabrina: The Animated Series being incorporated into the comics. The conventional setting lasted until issue #57, published in 2004, when the comic underwent a manga makeover.
