First Chilling Adventures of Sabrina photos with Kiernan Shipka
Netflix has released first look photos from their upcoming Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, featuring star Kiernan Shipka as the titular character. Make sure you check out the photos in the gallery below and let us know what you think!
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is based on the comic book of the same name, which reimagines 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.
Now that the two shows are on different networks, It remains to be seen if there will be any formal association between Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The comic book series features brief appearances by Archie characters like Betty and Veronica, but it is primarily a self-contained narrative.
Aguirre-Sacasa is writing the adaptation (the comic book basis for which he also wrote) and will executive produce. Lee Toland Krieger will direct and executive produce with Aguirre-Sacasa, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater. The series will premiere on Netflix on October 26.
