With Netflix’s upcoming new Sabrina series having fleshed out its core cast over the past several months, now comes a first look at the latest incarnation of the titular teenage witch.
Series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa took to social media to showcase Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina and Ross Lynch as her boyfriend, Harvey Kinkle.
In addition to the above pair, the series – loosely being referred to as The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina right now – will also star Jaz Sinclair as Sabrina’s bestest bud Rosalind, Chance Perdomo as warlock cousin Ambrose Spellman, Michelle Gomez as Madam Satan, Lucy Davis as Aunt Hilda, Miranda Otto as Aunt Zelda, Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood, Tati Gabrielle as Sabrina-hating witch Prudence, and Bronson Pinchot as Principal George Hawthorne.
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.
