One of pop culture’s favourite witches, Sabrina Spellman, is back in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, from Netflix and starring Kiernan Shipka.
The show has become a cult favourite in Australia since release, showing up on the Parrot Analytics Demand TV charts this week.
The first season launched globally on Netflix in the last week of October.
The series, featuring the teenage witch Sabrina from the Archie comics, was created and written by Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who is also the Archie Comics chief creative officer.
The series was developed for Netflix by Warner Bros. Television and Berlanti Productions. Aguirre-Sacasa, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Jon Goldwater and Lee Toland Krieger are executive producers on the series.
Starring as Sabrina is Kiernan Shipka, 18, who thrilled audiences as the troubled daughter of Don Draper, Sally Draper, in Mad Men.
Sabrina is a magical 16-year-old whose mixed heritage – half witch, half mortal – often leaves her feeling conflicted. The show takes viewers along on Sabrina’s personal journey of her discovering what she stands for and where she belongs.
Shipka is joined by the original characters from the comic book, who are brought to life by an international cast of actors:
Ross Lynch plays Sabrina’s human boyfriend Harvey, who just happens to come from a family of witch hunters.
Sabrina’s aunts are played by Britain’s Lucy Davis as Hilda Spellman and Australia’s Miranda Otto as Zelda Spellman.
English/American actor Chance Perdomo plays her bad boy cousin, Ambrose Spellman, a warlock.
Jaz Sinclair is her best friend, Rosalind. Scotland’s Michelle Gomez is Sabrina’s favourite teacher Mary Wardwell, who is also possessed by the Devil’s handmaiden, Madam Satan.
Gavin Leatherwood plays Nicholas Scratch, the young warlock who catches Sabrina’s eye.
