Sabrina Spellman has cast her first spell – and it’s getting everyone excited!
The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina just dropped its first teaser poster, thanks to showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and star Kiernan Shipka. A black cat, a pentagram, scary font, plus Sabrina’s iconic platinum bob – it’s totally giving us the chills!
Netflix’s 10-episode original series, based on the comic book of the same name, promises “a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. Tonally in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, this adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature — half-witch, half-mortal — while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.”
Kiernan Shipka, will be playing titular character Sabrina on the show. She will be joined by Lucy Davis, Miranda Otto, Chance Perdomo, Michelle Gomez, Jaz Sinclair, Richard Coyle, Ross Lynch, and Bronson Pinchot in the cast.
Although in the comics, Archie and pals sometimes appear in Sabrina’s stories, it’s not yet sure whether we’ll get to see our favorite Riverdale characters crossing over – the shows are on two different network, after all – but we certainly hope so!
Unfortunately, there’s no release date for the series yet. But it’s already got a two-season order from Netflix. And, if Riverdale is any indication, this could be a new favorite for binge-watching!
