We're gonna see a 'Li’l Sabrina' in the festive instalment
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina have released information on what to expect from the show’s special Christmas episode – along with further insight into season 2.
Netflix teased the upcoming festive story, A Midwinter’s Tale, earlier this month. The episode will be available to stream on December 14.
Now, Entertainment Weekly reports that the hit reboot has cast a young Sabrina for the one-off special. 12-year-old actor McKenna Grace will portray the titular character.
A new statement from Netflix also offers details on the Christmas tale’s plot.
“During our holiday special, we’ll get to see what Sabrina was like as a precocious tot,” it reads. “And while The Church of Night celebrates the Solstice, that doesn’t stop Li’l Sabrina from asking Santa for something special.”
It has also been confirmed that actors Alexis Denisof and Jedidiah Goodacre have been snapped up as recurring guest stars for season 2.
Denisof is set to portray Adam Masters – the partner of Mary Wardwell. Described as “handsome and charming”, the character “returns to Greendale after a stint overseas working with Physicians Without Frontiers — unaware that his fiancé has been taken over by the demoness Madam Satan”.
Elsewhere, Goodacre will appear as Dorian Grey – who owns a swanky nightclub called Dorian’s Grey Room. The seemingly mysterious character is described as “very good at keeping secrets, especially his own — a cursed portrait he hides from prying eyes”.
Meanwhile, The Satanic Temple has settled a copyright row with Netflix and Warner Bros, after they sued for $50million (£38 million) over the Sabrina reboot.
