Netflix and executive producer Aguirre-Sacasa shared the image on social media in preparation of the forthcoming series based on the popular Archie Comics character. The poster displays a playful occult vibe with Sabrina’s signature hairstyle, red lips and a silhouette of her cat, named Salem Saberhagen in the comic series.
The new storyline re-imagines the origin of Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka of Mad Men) as a dark coming-of-age story with adventures of horror, the occult and witchcraft.
Following the tone of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, this adaptation finds the central character struggling to balance her dual nature, being half-witch and half-mortal, while standing against forces of evil that threaten herself, her family and the daylight world that humans live in.
The talent enriched cast also includes Lucy Davis and Miranda Otto as Sabrina’s Aunts Hilda and Zelda respectively, Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood, Ross Lynch as Harvey Kinkle, Tati Gabrielle as Prudence, Michelle Gomez as teacher Mary Wardell and Chance Perdomo as Ambrose Spellman, Sabrina’s warlock cousin. Bronson Pinchot will guest star as George Hawthorne, Baxter High’s villainous principal.
Aguirre-Sacasa acts as executive producer with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Jon Goldwater and director Lee Toland Krieger for Warner Bros. TV.
The series makes its debut in 2018.
