Netflix Releases First Teaser Trailer For ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’
Netflix has released the first look at their upcoming new drama, the ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina‘, which comes to the streaming service on Friday, 26th October 2018.
The show tells the story of Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka), a half-witch half-mortal teenage girl. She’s been waiting her whole life for her 16th birthday, but something wicked this way comes, forcing her to choose between the path of light and the path of night.
Kiernan Shipka (‘Feud: Bette and Joan’, ‘Mad Men’) takes the titular role of Sabrina, with Ross Lynch (‘My Friend Dahmer’, Austin & Ally’) playing boyfriend Harvey Kinkle. Miranda Otto (‘Homeland’, ’24: Legacy’) takes the role of the authoritarian Aunt Zelda, whilst Lucy Davies (‘The Office’, ‘Wonder Woman’), plays Sabrina’s gentler Aunt Hilda. Jaz Sinclair (‘The Vampire Diaries’) stars as Sabrina’s best friend Rosalind Walker, with Chance Perdomo playing Sabrina’s warlock cousin from England. Richard Coyle (‘Hard Sun’, ‘The Fall’, ‘Coupling’) stars as Father Blackwood, High Priest of the Church of Night and Dean of the Academy of the Unseen Arts. Finally, Michelle Gomez (‘Doctor Who’) is set to play Mary Wardell, Sabrina’s favourite teacher… who unfortunately becomes possessed by the devil’s handmaiden, Madam Satan!
The show was originally planned as a companion to ‘Riverdale’ for The CW, but ended up landing at Netflix instead, meaning there are unlikely to be crossovers (although it’s not entirely impossible.) The series is being written by Archie Comics CCO, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who also wrote the ‘Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina’ comic book on which the show is based.
Aguirre-Sacasa will exec produce along with director Lee Toland Krieger (‘Riverdale’, ‘Deadly Class’, ‘Life Sentence’), Riverdale/Arrowverse’s Greg Berlanti & Sarah Schechter for Berlanti Productions, and Jon Goldwater for Archie Comics.
‘Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina‘ comes to Netflix UK and worldwide on Friday, 26th October 2018.
