The poster of the new Netflix series, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, debuted on Twitter with caption, “Something wicked this way comes.”
Archie Comics, the publisher behind the Riverdale and Sabrina comic book characters, tweeted on Tuesday, showing Sabrina’s iconic banged bob and headband with the silhouette of Salem the cat, against a bloody red backdrop.
The upcoming series recreates the adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch into a dark coming-of-age story that features thrilling scenes, occult, and witchcraft. The adaptation finds Sabrina Spellman (played by Kiernan Shipka) struggling to reconcile her dual character – half witch and half mortal – while fighting the evil forces that threaten her, her loved ones and the world.
Jaz Sinclair will portray the role of Rosalind Walker, Sabrina’s best friend, while Ross Lynch will take on Sabrina’s boyfriend, Harvey Kinkle. Miranda Otto and Lucy Davis will play Sabrina’s witch aunts, Zelda and Hilda Spellman.
Lynch told ET in March how the new Sabrina will be different from the beloved ‘90s sitcom, played by Melissa Joan Hart, saying that the Netflix series is “based off the newer [comic],” which is darker than the previous one.
“There were certain reservations that I had to say yes to this project obviously, because there was a lot of music going and ‘Preacher Man’ is very exciting and a lot of people are reacting to it,” he explained at the time, while he was promoting the release of “Preacher Man,” his debut song with his band, The Driver Era. “But I really believe in this project. I just had a good feeling about it.”
“I’m happy to say that so far my expectations have been exceeded,” Lynch continued. “Just the aesthetic of everything and the actors that were cast and [Sabrina creator] Roberto [Aguirre-Sacasa] … all the visions are coming together and they’re effective.”
Something wicked this way comes.
