New Images Introduce the Characters in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Is Netflix on a roll or what? It seems every other story we do lately is for a Netflix horror project! But we’re not complaining – there’s no such as too much horror, and next up is a set of images from “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” that introduce us to all the characters we’ll be meeting during Season 1.  Dig in!

“Riverdale” showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who also serves as chief creative officer of Archie Comics, penned the script for the series. Aguirre-Sacasa executive produces alongside “Riverdale” collaborators Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater, and Lee Toland Krieger. The drama hails from Warner Bros. Television-based Berlanti Productions.

SABRINA SPELLMAN (Kiernan Shipka) is an empowered young woman. Half-human, half-witch, Sabrina 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. Pictured with Lachlan Watson (as Susie Putnam), Jaz Sinclair (as Rosalind Walker) and Ross Lynch (as Harvey Kinkle).
HARVEY KINKLE (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.
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.
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.
MARY WARDWELL / 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.
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.
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 women. Witty, puckish, and pan-sexual, he is one of Sabrina’s partners in crime, always up for mischief
THE WEIRD SISTERS: AGATHA (Adeline Rudolph), PRUDENCE (Tati Gabrielle), and DORCAS (Abigail Cowen). The Weird Sisters—a trio of powerful, uncanny teenage witches at the Academy of Unseen Arts—look down their noses at Sabrina for being half-mortal.
SABRINA’S FRIENDS: ROSALIND WALKER (Jaz Sinclair) and SUSIE PUTNAM (Lachlan Watson). Rosalind is the brash, empowered, and outspoken daughter of Greendale’s minister and Sabrina’s best friend at Baxter High. Susie is also one of Sabrina’s friends 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.
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.

“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.

Look for “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” to hit Netflix on October 26th.
