The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina 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 (Kiernan Shipka) 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.
Originally developed for The CW as a companion series to Riverdale, the show was eventually picked up and given an initial 2-season order by Netflix. Archie Comics’ Chief Creative Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is overseeing the series with executive producer Greg Berlanti.
The show will premiere on Netflix in 2018.
