We got a good look at the upcoming Chilling Adventures of Sabrina a few days ago with the arrival for the first full trailer for the horror series, and now Netflix has released a new gallery of photos of the cast of the supernatural-themed Archie Comics adaptation.
The series, which premieres Oct. 26 on the streaming service, features Mad Men star Kiernan Shipka in the title role, a darker version than the previous lighthearted ABC sitcom Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. A much darker version.
As she turns 16, the precocious Sabrina is caught between her normal life as a high school student, complete with friends and a boyfriend, and her demonic destiny as a witch, all while a Satanic threat is looming. The story was inspired by the Archie Comics series of the same name, written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who is an executive producer of the show.
The cast also includes Ross Lynch as Sabrina's boyfriend Harvey Kinkle; Lucy Davis and Miranda Otto as her Aunts Hilda and Zelda, respectively; Gavin Leatherwood as Nicholas Scratch, a fellow student of Sabrina's at the Academy of Unseen Arts; Chance Perdomo as Ambrose Spellman, Sabrina's English cousin; Jaz Sinclair and Lachlan Watson as her "normal" friends at Baxter High School, Rosalind Walker and Susie Putnam, respectively.
There's also Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood, aka the High Priest of the Church of Night and Dean of the Academy of the Unseen Arts; Michelle Gomez as Mary Wardell/Madam Satan, Sabrina's favorite Baxter teacher; and Adeline Rudolph, Tati Gabrielle, and Abigail Cowen as the Weird Sisters, teenage witches Agatha, Prudence and Dorcas, respectively.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is being produced by the same team behind The CW's Riverdale (also inspired by Archie Comics characters) and they have not ruled out the idea of crossover at some point.
