Today Netflix released the first two official photos from Chilling Adventures of Sabrina starring Kiernan Shipka. [From L to R: Kiernan Shipka as “Sabrina Spellman”; A scene from the dark Baptism of Sabrina with Richard Coyle as “Father Blackwood,” Kiernan Shipka as “Sabrina Spellman,” Lucy Davis as Hilda Spellman, Mirando Otto as “Zelda Spellman” and Abigail Cowan, Adeline Rudolph and Tati Gabrielle as “The Weird Sisters” ]
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as 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.
Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who also serves as chief creative officer of Archie Comics, penned the script for the series. Aguirre-Sacasa executive produces alongside Riverdale collaborators Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater and Lee Toland Krieger. The drama hails from Warner Bros. Television-based Berlanti Productions.
Cast includes: Kiernan Shipka, Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis, Ross Lynch, Michelle Gomez, Chance Perdomo, Jaz Sinclair, Richard Coyle, Tati Gabrielle, Adeline Rudolph, Abigail Cowen, Lachlan Watson, Bronson Pinchot and Gavin Leatherwood.
