If you were a Sabrina The Teenage Witch Fan growing up, you’re going to love this news! It’s been confirmed that she’s coming back courtesy Netflix! But, wait for it! It isn’t the same fun-loving and bubbly Sabrina that we’re getting. In fact, the new series is called The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina. So if you’re expecting a something a little tame, think again.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is getting a release date of Halloween on Netflix. Seems quite fitting. . Kiernan Shipka stars as a Sabrina who is wrestling to reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal, while fighting the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit. Sabrina Spellman is described as an empowered young woman — half-human, half-witch — who is just beginning her dark education as a sorceress, even as she tries to maintain a normal life as a sophomore at Baxter High. Intelligent, compassionate and brave to the point of recklessness, Sabrina is all that stands between us and the forces of darkness that threaten our world. . This is said to be a much darker version of Sabrina and I’m down to check it out. . . #followme for a great source of news/entertainment in the worlds of Horror, Pro Wrestling and Beer!!
This series starring Kiernan Shipka is a reimagination of the original. It takes a much darker route and is being called a dark, coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and of course, witchcraft. They’ve also been pretty clear in the kind of direction and tone that they plan to set for this series. It’s said that it’s going to be in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist. Additionally, this adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature, which is half-witch and half-mortal. All this while having to stand up
The show has been scripted by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who is also the Cheif Creative Officer of Archies Comics and is also responsible for the hugely successful Riverdale. You can be sure that there are going to be plenty of twists and turns along the way, as Sabrina stands against the evil forces that threaten everything she holds dear. If Riverdale is any indication of how this show is going to go, we’re all in for a treat!
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina premiere date set for October!!! Straight from their TCA presentation, Netflix has revealed the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina premiere date, confirming the series will debut its first season on October 26. 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. Kiernan Shipka stars as Sabrina in the new series and is joined by Lucy Davis, Miranda Otto, Chance Perdomo, Michelle Gomez, Jaz Sinclair, Richard Coyle, Ross Lynch, and Bronson Pinchot in the cast. #ChillingAdventuresOfSabrina #SabrinaTheTeenageWitch #KiernanShipka #LucyDavis #RossLynch #MirandaOtto #RichardCoyle #Netflix #RobertoAguirreSacasa #Riverdale #TopandKrieger
The cast they’ve got on board also seems pretty promising, with the likes of Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis, Ross Lynch, Michelle Gomez and a whole lot more joining the fray. That being said, the series has a lot to live up to especially for us, since we complete fans of the original one. Time will tell which way this series will head and all we can do now is wait for the release which is slated for October 26, 2018.
