The new Netflix series Chilling Adventures Sabrina is now streaming and the reviews are coming in. First of all, if you are expecting a G-rated TV series like the ABC and WB nineties classic, think again. This is not like its predecessor. The Chilling Adventure of Sabrina is a horror series and it includes a lot of dark humor.
The series is based on the Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa comic book and is along the lines of Riverdale, which he also created. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina tells the story of Sabrina Spellman (who appears in the Archie comics). Sabrina is half witch, half human and the new series takes place in the sixties.
It’s described as a dark, coming of age story.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina features more occult themes and fans of Sabrina the Teenage Witch will notice they are watching darker, more occult version than previous reimaginings.

Netflix described the premise as follows.
“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina 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.”
People will recognize some of the cast that includes Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina Spellman, Ross Lynch as Harvey Kinkle, Lucy Davis as Hilda Spellman, Miranda Otto as Zelda Spellman, Chance Perdomo as Ambrose Spellman, Jaz Sinclair as Rosalind Walker, Michelle Gomez as Madam Satan and Mary Wardell, and Tati Gabrielle as Prudence.
Many will find Chilling Adventures of Sabrina the perfect Halloween weekend binge. With 10 episodes released on Netflix, there’s plenty of time to get through the series for the holiday weekend.
The show is already trending on Netflix and across social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. Those who make it through Season 1 this weekend will be happy to know that Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 2 is currently filming.
