Who knew the first look at Netflix’s horror-tinged Sabrina reboot would be so adorable? See for yourself, as the character’s Chilling Adventures don’t look nearly so chilling in set photos of Kiernan Shipka and our new Harvey.
Where once it seemed all our supernatural Riverdale dreams might come true, Netflix’s Sabrina has broken that spell. Despite the latter being designed as a spinoff, showrunners confirm the two series will be sticking to their own separate universes.
You won’t have to work very hard to conjure excitement for this one. Our new Netflix Sabrina has been found, as Mad Men alum Kiernan Shipka has landed the title role of the Riverdale spinoff-turned Netflix drama.
Excited though we were to see Sabrina join the Riverdale-verse, Netflix likely offered a bit more leeway with its darker tone. That darkness is pretty literal in our first official concept art from the series, which brings a bit of school spirit to some creepy woods.
We knew Sabrina the Teenage Witch was likely to conjure her very own Riverdale spinoff, but magic can be a might unpredictable. As such, the new series has charmed its way to a two-season order, surprisingly not on The CW.
The success of sexy CW Archie reboot Riverdale all-but-guaranteed spinoffs, and Sabrina the Teenage Witch had to be at the top of that list. Well, get ready for The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, as a horror-themed spinoff is officially in development.
Proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that every pop-culture crumb from our fading childhoods can and will be mined for blockbuster features, Sony announced plans for an edgier ‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch’ reboot.
