ABC has renewed Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. They've ordered 22 episodes for the 1997-98 season. A recent article stated:

For the season to date, the series is ABC's highest rated T.G.I.F. comedy; wins its time period among total viewers, women 18-49, teens and kids; and builds on its lead-in among these same categories.
