In addition to Shipka and Lynch, the cast includes Lucy Davis as Aunt Hilda, Miranda Otto as Aunt Zelda, Michelle Gomez as Sabrina’s favorite teacher Mary Wardell, Chance Perdomo as Sabrina’s cousin Ambrose, Jaz Sinclair as Sabrina’s BFF Rosalind, Bronson Pinchot as Principle George Hawthorne. Richard Coyle will play Father Blackwood, Tati Gabrielle will play Prudence, Adeline Rudolph will play Agatha, Abigail Cowen will play Dorcas, and Justin Dobies will play Harvey’s brother.
Based on the Archie Comics graphic novel “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” the project was first developed at The CW as a companion series to fellow Archie-verse show “Riverdale.” The series is said to be tonally similar to “Rosemary’s Baby” and “The Exorcist” and described as “a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft.”
Archie Comics chief creative Aguirre-Sacasa serves as writer and executive producer. Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter of Berlanti Productions also executive produce the Warner Bros. Television production, alongside Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater and director Lee Toland Krieger.
