The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is arriving just in time for Halloween. And for horror lovers, there hasn't been a more anticipated Netflix series since Stranger Things. This offshoot of Riverdale is taking things to a delightfully dark and unexpected place. This isn't your Aunt's Sabrina. Seriously, Baphomet is one of the main characters. Though, the dank demon isn't profiled in a new character breakdown.
Instead, we get a look at the Weird Sisters, favorites from the Archie comics. We also get a deep dive into the Spellman family, their friends and their foes. Sabrina is having her killer sweet sixteen very soon. And she must make a choice. The Path of Night or the Path of Light. How will Sabrina decide? Her family, friends and foes could help her choose a side.
Netflix is laying it all on the table in glorious fashion with a series of new character photos. The series is coming October 26, giving you one big weekend of thrills and chills if you're into binging on evil. Before we get to The Weird Sisters and Sabrina's boyfriend Harvey, let us take a look at the witch we love the most.
Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) is an empowered young woman, half-human, half-witch, who is just beginning her dark education as a sorceress, even as she tries to maintain a normal life as a sophomore at Baxter High. Intelligent, compassionate and brave to the point of recklessness, Sabrina is all that stands between us and the forces of darkness that threaten our world.
Harvey Krinkle (Ross Lynch) is Sabrina's boyfriend. The prince charming of this dark fairy tale, Harvey is the son of a coal miner, a dreamboat and a dreamer, completely unaware of the dark forces conspiring to keep him and Sabrina apart.
The Weird Sisters
The Weird Sisters; Agatha (Adeline Rudolph), Prudence (Tati Gabrielle), Dorcas (Abigail Cowen) are a trio of powerful, uncanny teenage witches at the Academy of Unseen Arts who look down their noses at Sabrina for being half-mortal.
Hilda Spellman (Lucy Davis) is one of Sabrina's two witch aunts. More nurturing than Zelda, Hilda's motherly nature and warm sense of humor belie a wicked, ghoulish streak. She is as adept at brewing spite jars against her family's enemies as she is at concocting love potions for the students at Baxter High.
Father Blackwood (Richard Coyle) is High Priest of the Church of Night and Dean of the Academy of the Unseen Arts. Ruthless and ambitious, Blackwood hides a terrifying dark agenda that will put him in direct conflict with Sabrina and other members of the coven.
Zelda Spellman (Miranda Otto) is Sabrina's sterner witch aunt. Proud and devout, Zelda believes there is no greater honor than serving the Dark Lord as a member of the Church of Night. She is the family's disciplinarian, fiercely protective of Sabrina, and very much Cain to Hilda's Abel.
Nicholas Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood) is a young, handsome warlock at the Academy of Unseen Arts who befriends new student Sabrina Spellman. An acolyte of Sabrina's father's teachings, Nicholas is drawn to Sabrina, as well, and there are immediate sparks between them.
Rosalind Walker and Susie Putnam
Sabrina's friends, Rosalind Walker (Jaz Sinclair), & Susie Putnam (Lachlan Watson). Rosalind, the brash, empowered and outspoken daughter of Greendale's minister and Sabrina's best friend at Baxter High. Susie Putnam is one of Sabrina's friends at Baxter High and a founding member of the school's newly formed WICCA club. Brave and optimistic despite being bullied at school, Susie lives on a farm at the outskirts of town and deals with a terrifying supernatural threat at home.
Mary Wardwell, otherwise known as Madam Satan, (Michelle Gomez) is Sabrina's favorite teacher and mentor at Baxter High. When she is possessed by the Devil's handmaiden, MADAM SATAN, Ms. Wardwell turns into a sultry, cunning manipulator, always trying to lure Sabrina down the Path of Night.
Ambrose Spellman (Chance Perdomo) is Sabrina's warlock cousin from England. Placed under house-arrest by the Witches Council, Ambrose is forbidden from leaving the funeral home where he lives with the Spellman woman. Witty, puckish, and pan-sexual, he is one of Sabrina's partners in crime, always up for mischief.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina 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.
