The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has us wrapped around it's teen-horror finger; we LIVE and breathe witchcraft and drama.

Of course, the show-runner for the Netflix show, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, is also the creator of Riverdale, and both shows are based on the classic Archie comics.

How great would it be if the two magical shows aligned? We'd be 100% here for it, that's for sure.

According to Shipka, spicing up the lives of Greendale's inhabitants would be easy for Archie Andrews; “My idea, personally, is that I think we need to get one of the Riverdale characters over on our show,"

A mash-up would make absolutely perfect sense since Greendale is actually Riverdale's neighbouring town, and both series' were adapted by the same person.

Just imagine the interactions, Ambrose and Jughead would be moody yet sassy BFF's, Sabrina and Betty would probably braid each other's hair, and Salem would be taken good care of by Dark Betty.

Anything is possible lads.

Shipka spoke to Entertainment Tonight about her simple yet effective idea for a Riverdale crossover;

"I think Archie should just wander over to Greendale. Like, he goes on runs. He's athletic. He can run into Greendale one day….Right?"

"I honestly think that Archie hopping on over into our show would be awesome. My main pitch is always that… Forget the Gargoyle King! What is happening in the town over?," she continued.

What would Sabrina order at Pop's Diner?

Would Sabrina and Archie have a romance plot, similar to the comics? 

There are just SO MANY exciting things that could happen, fingers crossed that this actually happens.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has caused QUITE a stir since it exploded onto Netflix this year.

The series was ordered from Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa as part of a two-season agreement, which means we are guaranteed more magic, more unreal characters like Ambrose and Harvey Kindle, and more unbelievably chic hairstyles.

I mean, her icy blonde locks at the end of season one? Slay much? Goals?

News has just hit that as well as season two premiering on April 5 2019, Netflix has renewed the show for at least two more seasons; this means sixteen BEAUT more episodes to be divided over seasons three and four.

We honestly can't get enough. Just hook us up to an IV of Ambrose's honey-toned voice saying 'cousin' on repeat.

Since the finale of season one, fans have been speculating what exactly is in store for season two.

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD.

Sabrina has now signed her name in the book of the beast, her hair has gotten lighter and her lipstick darker, Aunt Hilda's new beau is definitely malicious in some way, Principal Hawthorne is dead thanks to Madam Satan (AKA Lilith, mother of demons).

The cast have already filmed season two, with production beginning in March of this year. The seasons were filmed back-to-back, so they know everything that happens up until season three… please TELL US.

Season two will also have 10 episodes. according to Deadline.

Kiernan Shipka has also revealed to Bloody Disgusting in October 2018 that;

“Sabrina definitely changes and shifts a lot. Her growth is very evident and the second season definitely has a different spin on it than the first season. They are very different from each other.”

Season two is set to pick up straight away from the endingof season one, and the mid-winter special has already aired.

Sabrina herself has claimed;

“I would just say that, without giving too much away, because it would be a bit of a spoiler, the way that Sabrina’s life takes certain turns and certain decisions she makes inform the second season."

"The finale of the first season sets up a lot. It goes in a different direction. We see more different characters. It deals with a different side of things.”

Filming, as per Shipka's Instagram and Ross Lynch's updates, wrapped in December 2018. There are also rumours that Salem might get his own special episode.

Speaking to IndieWire in October, the showrunner acknowledged Salem’s history, saying; “We’ve definitely talked about doing a Salem-centric episode where we learn more about his life,” RAS said.

Despite the fact that the kitty didn't have any dialogue in the first season, “That isn’t to say that Salem won’t talk in the future.” Our ears are pricked, fam.

Season two is set to have some brand new faces added to the mix.

According to Deadline, actor Alexis Denisof (Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel) will play Mary Wardwell’s boyfriend who returns to Greendale from abroad, but has no idea that his girlfriend is POSSESSED. Ooh, we are ready.

Jedidiah Goodacre (The OriginalsSupernatural and The 100) plays Dorian Gray, a warlock who owns a nightclub called Dorian Gray’s Room. Yep, it's a Oscar Wilde reference.

Get ready to binge season two when it's released on the first Friday in April, we CANNOT WAIT.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been one of the most successful Netflix shows of 2018, and for good reason.

The show is a darker take on one of our old 1990s faves, Sabrina the Teenage Witch; a coming of age story about a seemingly normal adolescent girl with a horror-themed secret.

Netflix' take on the series has expanded the layers of witchcraft, introducing the occult, bloodlust and evil forces inherent in the human world. Sounds like our kind of vibe, doesn't it?

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (@sabrinanetflix) on

Kiernan Shipka totally cast her spell on the audience as Sabrina Spellman, and our new internet boyfriend Chance Perdomo had quite an effect as her cousin, Ambrose.

When we left Sabrina at the end of part one, she was forced to make her decision regarding the border between the human world and the world of witchcraft, with powerful results.

We already knew that season two was in the works, as ordered the series as a two-part deal. Thank the Gods for that.

Luckily for us, we don't have to wait long for season two to hit our screens, the trailer has been released and our gal Sabrina is most-definitely dark witch material.

Sporting her new icy blonde hair and cheeky grin, she's undoubtedly up to mischief. 

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2 airs on April 5th on Netflix. Get ready, witches.

She's Netflix' latest It Girl.

The 19-year-old actor has been killing it as the teenage witch on Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

I have to admit, growing up with the 1990's version of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, I was a bit sceptical

But I needn't have been as the CAOS are a whole new show -apart from a few of the same character names, it's nothing like the one from my childhood.

It's darker, grittier, scarier, sexier and seriously brilliant. Mainly because of Kiernan herself, who effortlessly carries the show and makes Sabrina her own. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Being on the cover of @seventeen is rad and all but let’s just take a moment for PUPPIES

A post shared by Kiernan Shipka (@kiernanshipka) on

And now she speaking out about what drew her to the role and why it has a pro-female message she’s happy to get behind.

She says, “I’m unreasonably excited that young girls are going to get to have this character be an inspiration to them. I think she is so strong-willed, has such a good heart, speaks her mind, stands up for herself, and questions things that she feels aren’t right.”

Feminist-driven work is something that interests her, ''because that’s just who I am.''

While the show is not set in any definite time period, Kiernan does acknowledge that ''it’s related to what’s happening in many different ways and resonates on so many levels.''

We hear ya. 

Not only that but playing the strong-willed teen has pushed her to be a better person herself – because, after all Sabrina is not just a witch – she's a teenage girl as well. 

Kiernan says, ''She puts herself in situations that are very risky – on the life-threatening side of risky – but to play someone completely and utterly passionate, and who doesn’t back down, makes me want to be the best person I can possibly be.''

However, when it comes to calling Sabrina  role model, she hesitates.

However she says that , ''I remember when I was 13 or 14, how I would see a movie and I would want to be exactly like a character. So to grow up and have a character like Sabrina [influence] someone’s life, that’s so cool to me.''

For someone who is only nineteen, she sure seems to have a lot of her sh*t figured out – any advice Kiernan?

''Coming into your own sounds so elegant, but it doesn’t seem that smooth when it happens. It’s something I’ve been exploring for a while. I figured it out to an extent but…Growing up is definitely complicated, obviously.''

She continues, "Everyone has their own journey. I’m at a place where I feel more myself than I ever have, and I’m loving that, and I’m excited that Sabrina came my way. It feels like something I can handle in a way that probably would have been a different experience when I was 16.''

You just keep doing what you're doing – we LOVE CAOS – hurry up season two, yeah?

Welcome to Riverdale’s neighbouring Greendale, where “it always feels like Halloween.”

The new Netflix reboot based on the Archie Comics original has already received hugely positive reviews, and now it's our turn to investigate. 

From the opening theme with it's rich, horror-soaked animation paired with eerie music, Sabrina adopts the alluring fantasy of the supernatural and brings it into 2018.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (@sabrinanetflix) on

Kiernan Shipka of Mad Men fame steps into the role of a sweet-looking girl with a wicked secret. We’re hooked already, tbh.

The modern-day teen drama is perfect for the time. Sabrina Spellman is a seriously empowered, political gal who we can easily see protesting on the streets looking glam AF, with Harvey on her arm.

On her 16th birthday, Sabrina will have to choose “between two worlds: the witch world of her family and the human world of her friends.”

The main gal herself is ordered to choose between the mortal world and the world of Satan, but it is only a deceitful imposter of a choice, in reality she has no control over what is going on around her.

Forces around her are trying to pull her a million ways, and the secret is simmering throughout the opening episodes in regards to why exactly she is being lied to about her heritage.

Her ‘Dark Baptism’ (what even?) is the night where her life-changing decision must be made, and it’s quite a scene.

Sabrina, whose father was a powerful Satanic priest (the Salem equivalent of your dad being on the Supreme Court) and whose mother was a mortal, is expected to pledge allegiance to the Dark Lord, Lucifer himself, and renounce her human ties.

In return, she gets unfathomable power—but only in return for total and unquestionable loyalty.

Naturally, Sabrina doesn’t want to leave her friends and boyfriend behind, which is the consequence of choosing to serve the devil. So far, so relatable.

Harvey is adorbs to be fair; Disney Channel doesn’t seem suitable for child actor Ross Lynch in this context. He’s a slightly minor character in the initial few episodes, with the main draw obviously being Sabrina and her struggle surrounding her Sweet Sixteen.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Joanna Michele (@itsmejoanna_b) on

The show paints a far more macabre, historically accurate picture of witchcraft, which has long been associated with sexual deviance and the corruptible power of women.

First of all – I LOVE that she refuses to be bullied into making a choice – women are often cornered into sacrificing parts of who they are, but this gal is having NONE of it.

Her character is also more complex than her initial impression conveys- there are undoubtedly dark parts to her light aura. She is far too casual when discussing hexing her principal, for example. The spider scene which accompanies this hex is traumatic as a total arachnophobe, but I'll forgive them for it. Eventually.

I wasn't expecting to be genuinely spooked by some of the content, but it made it even more enjoyable. Think of it like a dramatic teenage female Harry Potter: an orphan with a colossal weight on her shoulders, an animal sidekick and some MAD sorcery skills.

Plenty of freaky stuff starts happening from the get go: she takes a bite of a malum malus—an evil apple, and has a vision of witches hanging from a tree.

She is told she must sign the Book of the Beast in the woods with her own blood. She gets a blood curse. The list goes on, really. The darkness and absurdity create a kind of gruesome and macabre humour, which grows as the episodes progress.

The audience becomes pretty desensitised to the weirdness, after all we have seen some pretty ridiculous stories from other YA series (Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Twilight etc).

I was part of the generation that watched the 1990's Sabrina until the BITTER END. The bitter end being, of course, her wedding to long-time on and off boyfriend, Harvey.

The show ran from 1996 until 2003, and was far more comedic and slapstick than the current endeavour. Screwball humour, a hilarious witty cat named Salem and a leading lady who was far more relatable than other female characters on TV.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Melissa Joan Hart Fan (@sabrinatheteenagewitchfan) on

Kiernan Shipka, who plays the protagonist, said, “It’s nothing like the ‘90s sassy, mean Salem at all. That’s its own thing that we’re not going to try to compete with or be in the slightest because you can’t live up to that in any way. This is more of a subtle sort of nod, I would say, to the old show.”

She's dead right, the new show is 100% not trying to imitate any of its predecessors, and this works in its favour. Loyalists of the Melissa Joan Hart edition will be fairly baffled at the lack of humour, and disappointed about Salem the wisecracking kitty being MUTE. 

I'll be honest, this devastated me. Salem was hilarious, the original was voiced by Nick Bakay and he's still iconic for his sassiness. The modern day Salem might well speak in future, the show's creator hasn't ruled it out.

The main positive of creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacaso's take on the show is the relevance to modern day and age of Me Too.

At Baxter High School, Sabrina stands up to bullies and founds a women’s intersectional cultural and creative association (WICCA) to provide students with support.

Her BFF Susie is gender non-conforming and suffers for it, and her STUH-NING cousin Ambrose (Chance Perdomo) is pansexual. He is such an aesthetically pleasing man, here's his Instagram for you all to creep on if you don't believe me.

He could win Most Beautiful Mortician of All Time any day, but who can say if this is a hotly contested competition.

As a witch participating in various ceremonies, Sabrina publicly objects to the controlling behaviour of Satan himself. She's braver than us…

She’s of the social media generation, woke AF would be the phrase that immediately comes to mind. She's super savvy, and sniffs out injustices in her own world and in the supernatural.

We love a gal who questions authority. Witches historically have been used to fit the zeitgeist of the time, and the current political climate is part of the reason why the show could be taking off.

The notion of what would happen if women had supernatural power has terrified communities around the world since the 13th century.

The show has already been confirmed for a season two, before season one had even aired.

One down-side of Sabrina for me is the over-the-top theatricality in some parts, but we can’t deny it’s entertainment value.

The orgy scenes, for example, were a bit much considering Sabrina Spellman is sixteen and has an adorable boyfriend, but we get what they were going for.

Maybe they’re trying to embody the wilderness and confusion of adolescence, or maybe they’re just in the mood for some seriously sinister teenage drama. Who can tell?

What no one can deny about the Archie Comics reboots is that teenage angst is taken totally seriously; the adolescent frustrations, anxieties, passions and friendships are all explored and given a platform.

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa of Riverdale fame has his roots showing in this context. Riverdale had a plot in season one and has now just completely gone off in bizarre tangents, hopefully Sabrina doesn't end up going down this route.

Melissa Joan Hart herself has given the Netflix effort her stamp of approval.

One thing's for sure: you won’t be bored, and you’ll definitely appreciate the fun she has with her wicked skills.

It's highly-enjoyable television that made me want to join a coven and curse the entire patriarchy. Well, even more so than I did before…

If you're anything like us, you grew up watching Sabrina Spellman in Sabrina the Teenage Witch navigating the murky waters of teenhood coupled with the pressures of casually being a half-witch. 

Netflix intends to bring back the legendary characters, but with an edgy twist, and now Netflix have found their leading actress.

Filling Melissa Joan Hart's shoes will be Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka.

With Sally Draper being only one of over 40 TV and film roles she has played, the 18-year-old actress is perfectly poised to take on the magical role.

The currently untitled series, based on the Archie comic The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been snapped up by the streaming service for an initial two seasons, according to Deadline

It's going to be a darker, edgier drama which sees Sabrina struggling against the forces of evil, all while maintaining a normal half-mortal life. 

 

A post shared by Kiernan Shipka (@kiernanshipka) on

'We’re all such huge fans of Kiernan’s work that when we started talking about who this new incarnation of Sabrina could be, her name was on everyone’s wish list,' executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told Variety.

'This is a darker, more macabre version of Sabrina, and we’re incredibly excited for people to see Kiernan make this iconic character her own.'

Now we're more excited than ever for the show to be released.
