A comeback of a 90s favorite: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina takes you inside the world of Sabrina Spellman, a half-witch, a half-mortal girl torn to choose between the two worlds she loves. Follow her chilling adventures as she figures out what to do in both worlds on October 26 exclusively on Netflix.
If you haven’t seen the latest trailer, watch it here:
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is based on the popular comic book of the same name by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. People who grew up in the 90s know Sabrina the Teenage Witch and the snarky scene-stealer cat, Salem Saberhagen. This new adaptation is the re-imagined origin and adventures of the favorite comic and animated series as a dark coming-of-age story that involves horror, the occult, and witchcraft.
The trailer show some glimpse of what Sabrina and other key characters celebrate her 16th birthday with the eerie rendition of “Happy Birthday” in the background. The dark turn of the series may have been attributed to the influence of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, where Sabrina attempts to reconcile her dual nature while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family, and the daylight world the human inhabit.
Meet the Coven
Kiernan Shipka starred as Sabrina Spellman. She’s the empowered young woman who just started her dark education as a sorceress while maintaining her normal life as a sophomore at Baxter High. Sabrina is all that stands between us and the forces that threaten our world.
Sabrina’s boyfriend is a coal miner’s son Harvey Kinkle, played by Ross Lynch. The prince charming of this dark fairy tale Harvey is a dreamer, completely unaware of the dark forces conspiring to keep him and Sabrina apart.
Lucy Davis plays Hilda Spellman, the nurturing aunt of Sabrina. Hilda’s motherly nature and warm sense of humor belie a wicked ghoulish streak. She is adept at brewing spite jars against her family’s enemies as she is at concocting love potions for the students at Baxter High.
Meanwhile, Zelda Spellman, Sabrina’s sterner aunt is played by Miranda Otto. She’s a proud and devout believer of the Dark Lord as a member of the Church of the Night. She’s the family’s disciplinarian, fiercely protective of Sabrina, and very much Cain to Hilda’s Abel.
Mary Wardwell/ Madam Satan is portrayed by Michelle Gomez, Sabrina’s favorite teacher and mentor at Baxter High. When she was possessed by the Devil’s handmaiden, Madam Satan, Ms. Wardwell became a sultry, cunning manipulator, always trying to lure Sabrina down the Path of the Night.
Ambrose Spellman is Sabrina’s warlock cousin from England played by Chance Perdomo. Placed under house arrest by the Witches Council, Ambrose is forbidden from leaving the funeral home where he lives with the Spellman women. Witty, puckish, and pansexual, he’s one of Sabrina’s partners in crime, always up for mischief.
