If you've read the Lovecraftian, darkly humorous, and autumnally atmospheric comic book series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, then there's a good chance that you want to cast a spell on your clock to speed up the arrival of the Netflix series adaptation (starring Kiernan Shipka in the lead role). While we can't make October 26th get here any quicker, we do have a look at two new images from the new Sabrina series to help make the wait a little easier.
The new images from Chilling Adventures of Sabrina were shared on the show's official Facebook page, and you can view them below.
The new Sabrina TV series is based on Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's comic book series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which features chillingly atmospheric artwork by Robert Hack.
Aguirre-Sacasa, who developed The CW's Riverdale TV series, writes and executive produces the series, with Lee Toland Krieger (Riverdale) on board as a director and executive producer. Also executive producing the new series are Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater, all of whom executive produce Riverdale.
Below, we have the official details on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated as more information (including the first trailer) is revealed.
"Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, starring Kiernan Shipka, 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.
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. Cast includes: Kiernan Shipka, Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis, Ross Lynch, Michelle Gomez, Chance Perdomo, Jaz Sinclair, Richard Coyle, Tati Gabrielle, Adeline Rudolph, Abigail Cowen, Lachlan Watson and Bronson Pinchot."
