We’ve finally got a date for Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina!
The announcement was made on the TCA stage. Nine Sabrina lookalikes came on stage, decked out in wigs and jackets, with red letters on the back of their backs that spelled out “October 26.” The lead role of Sabrina is played by Mad Men alum Kiernan Shipka and she is also sporting the signature blond bob and black headband.
Creator Robert Aguirre-Sacasa is the brain child behind the darker adaptation of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. The comic was part of the Archie Horror series and made in collaboration with Robert Hack, the man responsible for the dark and gritty art style that the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is known for. The 8 issues have been made into a 10-episode season on Netflix.
Like in the comic, this half-witch, half-mortal will be wrestling with the evil forces around her, inside of her, and that threaten the very people she loves. She’ll be joined by notable characters like Hilda Spellman (Lucy Davis), Zelda Spellamn (Miranda Otto), Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch), and Ambrose Spellman (Chance Perdomo).
