As Netflix’s upcoming Sabrina series continues to flesh out its core cast, the series has moved to bring in Bronson Pinchot.
Courtesy of Deadline, the Perfect Strangers, Beverly Hills Cop, True Romance, and Ray Donovan star will be playing George Hawthorne in the show. That character is the Principal of Baxter High and will be seen butting heads with Sabrina and her pals.
Already on board for this new take on an old favourite are Kiernan Shipka as the titular teenage witch, Jaz Sinclair as her bestest bud Rosalind, Chance Perdomo as warlock cousin Ambrose Spellman, Michelle Gomez as Madam Satan, and Lucy Davis as Aunt Hilda.
To be based on the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comic book, the current blurb on the upcoming series reads:
Sabrina is based on the comic book Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which reimagines 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.
Expect more on this new show as we get it.
