The latest video from Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina finds the series’ star Kiernan Shipka discussing her character and season one. “Her life up until 16 was very mortal. And on her 16th birthday she’s faced with signing her name in the Book of the Beast,” explains Kiernan Shipka in the two and a half minute video.
The new video also features Miranda Otto who plays Zelda Spellman. Otto describes Sabrina’s journey as being torn between two worlds and needing to decide on what path she’ll take.
Lucy Davis plays Hilda Spellman and in the video she confirms this 2018 series is vastly different from the Sabrina series of the ’90s. Cast members describe this version as edgier, darker, and definitely in the horror vein.
The series also stars Ross Lynch as Harvey Kinkle, Michelle Gomez as Mary Wardell, Chance Perdomo as Ambrose Spellman, Jaz Sinclair as Rosalind Walker, and Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood. The cast also includes Tati Gabrielle as Prudence, Adeline Rudolph as Agatha, Abigail Cowen as Dorcas, Lachlan Watson as Susie Putnam, and Bronson Pinchot as George Hawthorne.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, showrunner of The CW’s Riverdale and the chief creative officer of Archie Comics, wrote the script and executive produces. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater, and Lee Toland Krieger also serve as executive producers.
Netflix is set to launch the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on October 26, 2018.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, starring Kiernan Shipka, imagines 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.
