'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' is expected later this year
The first photos of Sabrina and Harvey from Netflix‘s new Sabrina The Teenage Witch reboot, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, have been revealed.
Last year, the streaming service confirmed it was producing a new Sabrina-focused series to serve as a companion show to Riverdale.
The original 90s Sabrina the Teenage Witch TV show was based on an Archie Comics series of the same name, and the new show will be based on the more recent – and much darker – Archie Comics series, The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina.
Mad Men star Kiernan Shipka has been cast to play Sabrina Spellman in the show. Shipka portrayed Sally Draper in Mad Men from 2007 to 2015.
Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has now shared a picture of Shipka on set with Ross Lynch, who will portray Harvey Kinkle in the series. Disney star Lynch is a member of the pop-rock band R5. See more photos here.
“We’re all such huge fans of Kiernan’s work that when we started talking about who this new incarnation of Sabrina could be, her names was on everyone’s wish list,” Aguirre-Sacasa previously said of Shipka’s casting.
Lynch recently told ET about appearing in the series: “I really believe in this project and I’m happy to say that all my expectations have been exceeded.”
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is expected to premiere later this year. It was reported last year that production would begin in Vancouver in February 2018. The show will also star Lucy Davis and Michelle Gomez.
