The witching hour is upon us. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has arrived. One of the most-anticipated series debuts of the year has flown into our hearts on an eastward wind, but it’s not without its imperfections. On the heels of our review, here are some of the big things we loved about the first season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina - and a few things we wish had been better. Hail Satan!
As a 30-something woman who grew up with The Craft, Charmed, and (of course) Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina feels like being a teen witch again. Only this time, it’s not magical pancakes or superhero costumes, it’s a dark exploration of Satanic worship and the horrors of the patriarchy. The show isn’t perfect and has problems it may never outgrow, but it is a helluva ride. Hail Satan!
Video: Netflix has released a new look at Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, immediately addressing one of our biggest questions: What exactly is Salem’s deal here? As we see in this first clip, this is not the Salem Saberhagen that we’re used to.
Stepping onto the set of Netflix's The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is like accepting an apple from a serpent. Dark forces offer truth, hint at stories and Easter eggs beneath the red, ripened flesh. Secrets of the show's characters and mythos are built into every room, from the walls created with Sacred Geometry to a hall of hexed shoes. A world of knowledge beckons, and we're going to take a big, luscious bite.
Video: Welcome to the coven, my sistren and brethren. Let us light our candles, pray to the Dark Lord, and find a creepy wooded glen to sign a harmless blood pact with the forces of evil. Because the first devilishly charming trailer for Netflix’s The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is here, and it’s going to make a sacrifice out of the October 26 weekend.
Sabrina the Teenage Witch would be incomplete without her familiar, Salem, a human who was turned into a cat against his will. Unfortunately, the bond between witch and kitty may not be very magical in Netflix’s The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The lead actress has allergies.
Once you've played a female reincarnation of a villainous Time Lord, there's really nowhere to go but down... all the way down to Hell, that is. Michelle Gomez, who played Missy on Doctor Who, will be inhabiting a new creature of evil as Madam Satan on Netflix's The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina series.
Archie Comics has single-handedly pulled itself into the 21st century with multiple rebooted comics series reimagining its classic characters, and the wildly successful Lynchian drama Riverdale. At one point, the company's next big plan was to bring another character - Sabrina, the teenage witch - to the small screen as well.
Caroline Rhea spent the better part of the late '90s playing Hilda Spellman, eccentric aunt and witch looking after Sabrina, her teenaged niece. The role brought Rhea into millions of households every week and the actress defined the role for a generation. Turns out, though, that she took the job under less than ideal circumstances.
Excellent news! Sabrina the Teenage Witch is making her way to television again, in a new show from the creative team behind Archie Comics' other TV adaptation, Riverdale. Even better news: this is not your childhood Sabrina. It's the version from the outstanding horror comic Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, a book you should absolutely read.
The League goes all in for new Justice League posters. Josh Brolin is caught in some strange photos from the Deadpool 2 set.
