Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the writer and Executive Producer of Netflix’s adaptation of Archie Comics’ The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, took to twitter today to share the first image from the upcoming series featuring Sabrina and her boyfriend Harvey.

The image features Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) and Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch) “strolling down the avenue” into teenage romance and possible trouble, albeit of a more demonic nature. The Netflix series is based on the 2014 comic book mini series (also written by Aguirre-Sacasa) and if the source material is any indication, this series will more closely resemble classic horror films, rather than the light-hearted Melissa Joan Hart sit-com which aired from 1996 to 2003.
Additional cast members include: Jaz Sinclair (Easy), Michelle Gomez (Doctor Who) Lucy Davis (Wonder Woman), Miranda Otto (Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers), Richard Coyle (Covert Affairs), Chance Perdomo, and Tati Gabrielle (The 100) among others.
No debut date has been confirmed by Netflix at this time, but the network has promised a 2018 release. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for further updates on The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina as they are announced!
