We have our official first look poster of the upcoming Netflix reboot The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The poster was released courtesy of series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa — and it finds the show’s titular spell caster (played by Mad Men‘s Kiernan Shipka) cozying up to her familiar Salem (whose voice actor has not yet been announced).
The new series is based on the comic book series of the same name, this 10-episode Netflix drama “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.” Described as being in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, the series finds Sabrina making peace with her dual nature — half-witch, half-mortal — while “standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.” You know, regular teen stuff.
It looks like this reboot version will be less kid-friendly than the Melissa Joan Hart series. In fact, it looks like it is shaping up to be this generation’s Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina also stars Lucy Davis as Aunt Hilda, Miranda Otto as Aunt Zelda, Ross Lynch as Harvey Kinkle, Jaz Sinclair as Sabrina’s BFF Rosalind Walker, Tati Gabrielle as her rival Prudence, Chance Perdomo as her cousin Ambrose, Bronson Pinchot as her villainous school principal George Hawthorne and Michelle Gomez as her possessed teacher Mary Wardell.
