Ever since a new Sabrina the Teenage Witch series was first announced, many have presumed that the show will pull its title from the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comic book series. And now, it’s been confirmed that that is indeed the case.
Series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa took to social media to reveal the title, complete with star Kiernan Shipka:
The official blurb on this upcoming show reads:
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is based on the comic book of the same name, 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.
Making up quite the impressive ensemble, Shipka is joined on the series by Lucy Davis, Miranda Otto, Michelle Gomez, Ross Lynch, Richard Coyle, Chance Perdomo, and Bronson Pinchot.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has yet to be given a premiere date, although Netflix has already put in an order for two seasons of the show.
