Friday, October 26 was the Netflix premiere of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, created by the same producers as Riverdale.

The show takes place in Greendale, the neighboring town of Riverdale, but unlike Riverdale the cast deals with things of the supernatural, more specifically witches and warlocks.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina deals with Sabrina Spellman, portrayed by Kiernan Shipka, age 16 who is a half-witch and lives with her aunts Hilda and Zelda Spellman, played by Lucy Davis and Miranda Otto, and cousin Ambrose Spellman, portrayed by Chance Perdomo.

The series includes characters such as Harvey Kinkle, Sabrina’s boyfriend, played by Ross Lynch and her friends Rosalind “Roz” Walker (Jaz Sinclair) and Susie Putnam (Lachlan Watson). The plotline follows Sabrina as she must choose between her mortal life or becoming a full witch and the consequences that follow.

Although most people believed the series to be a reboot of Sabrina the Teenage Witch it has it’s own canon, although both take inspiration from the comic Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

The new series takes a much grimmer tone than the sitcom. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina also has lots of diversity representation in the characters, such as People of Color (POC), LGBT characters, and a strong female lead.

The series is divided into parts, and Part 1 currently has 10 episodes and the duration of each episode lasting about one hour. Cast and crew are currently under production for Part 2, and it is rumored that it will come out sometime next year. Words of a crossover between the show and Riverdale are also spreading.
