'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' Poster Teases the Upcoming Netflix Series
by Dylan Blight
Showrunner for Netflix's upcoming Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Roberto Aquirre-Sacasa has posted a teaser poster highlighting Salem and Sabrina via his Twitter account.
The Archie comic spin-off series will be based on the graphic novel of the same but will work to make the series darker than ever before. Which is in-line with the more serious tone of Netflix's Riverdale which tackles a darker more teen angst inspired take on that universe.
“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.”
If you get up in the 90's your intorduction to Sabrina (like myself) was probably through Sabrina, the Teenage Witch (1996-2003) which stared Melissa Joan Hart as Sabrina. That series focused on the family aspect and school life of Sabrina and was targeted at a family audince -- which this new series will not be.
We don't have a locked in date for when the series will premiere yet, but hopefully the 'soon' on the poster really means soon.
Check out the poster below:
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina stars Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina, Ross Lynch as Harvey Kingle, Michelle Gomez as Marry Wardell, Chance Perdomo as Ambrose Spellman, Lucy Davis as Hilda Spellman, Miranda Otto as Zelda Spellman, Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood and Tati Gabrielle as Prudence. With Roberto Aquiree-Sacasa, Lee Toland Krieger, Greg Berlanti, Jon Goldwater and Sarah Schechter serving as executive producers.
