Sabrina: Get Your First Look at Sabrina and Harvey!

Netflix is bringing Sabrina Spellman back to the small screen, but the streaming giant's take on the story will be completely different to the comedy series that aired from 1996 to 2003.

Instead, the new series will be based on The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comics, and they are considerably darker than the ABC/WB series that aired back in the day.

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa‏, showrunner of the new series took to Twitter to share a picture of Kiernan Shipka and Ross Lynch as Sabrina and Harvey respectively.

"Well, it’s out there. A 1st look at Harvey and Sabrina from the “Chilling Adventures of #Sabrina.” Adorbs, right?" Roberto captioned the tweet.

The series was first announced back in September as a companion series to Riverdale on The CW, but Netflix later swooped in gave the series a two-season commitment.

Netflix's Sabrina Reboot Casts Harvey Kinkle!

Sabrina the Teenage Witch is coming to Netflix in the near future, and we now know who will be playing the love of Sabrina's life.

Ross Lynch has landed the coveted role, and we can't help but think he's going to be a perfect fit for the magical drama series which is based on the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comics.

Netflix’s Harvey is described as “the prince charming of this dark fairy tale, Harvey is the son of a coal miner, a dreamboat and a dreamer, completely unaware of the dark forces conspiring to keep him and Sabrina apart.”

Mad Men veteran, Kiernan Shipka landed the lead role of Sabrina Spellman back in January.

Have Questions About How Sabrina Is Connected to Riverdale? We Have Answers

Image Source: The CW Ever since it was announced that The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina would be coming to our TV screens, we've had a multitude of questions. Will it air on The CW? How scary will it be? Who will play the iconic teenage witch? And when, if at all, will she pop up on Riverdale? While we've gotten the answers to most of those queries (Fyi: mo, it's going to be on Netflix; it will be moderately horrifying; Kiernan Shipka is the new Sabrina)- the last issue is a little more vague. Although The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comics are rooted in the same universe as the rest of the classic Archie comics characters - Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead, etc. - it doesn't look like the TV versions of the comics will necessarily follow suit. Both Riverdale and the new Sabrina series are helmed by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa,

Sabrina Casts Miranda Otto as Aunt Zelda!

Well, this is some excellent casting news!

Australian actress Miranda Otto has landed the role of Zelda Spellman on Netflix's Sabrina the Teenage Witch reboot.

The character is described as follows: “Proud and devout, Zelda believes there is no greater honor than serving the Dark Lord as a member of the Church of Night."

"She is the family’s disciplinarian, fiercely protective of Sabrina and very much Cain to Hilda’s Abel.”

On the TV front, Otto most recently appeared in Fox's ill-fated 24: Legacy. That show was given the pink slip after one low-rated season.

The new series is said to be a darker take on the franchise, which will be a complete 180 to the ABC/WB series which aired from 1996 to 2003.

18 Oscar-winning Horror Movies That Shocked and Surprised

18 Oscar-winning Horror Movies That Shocked and Surprised
With Get Out and The Shape of Water recently garnering nominations for Best Picture, the refined world of The Academy Awards was turned upside down. Sure, co-nominee Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri takes a look at some pretty horrific things. And yes, The Shape of Water is more of a creature feature, but Get Out is a bonafide horror movie. Its nomination makes one wonder how many horror films have ever won an Oscar.

For starters, horror movies tend to be done on the quick. Due to this, their production values, performances, and screenplays tend be not as good as, say, The Post. In fact, they rarely approach anything like The Phantom Thread and they certainly don't look anything like Dunkirk. With Get Out, we have a movie that has the nuance of Call Me By Your Name and the comic sensibility of Lady Bird. All wrapped up in a

From 'Psycho' to 'Get Out': A History of Horror at the Oscars

On January 23rd, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this year's Oscar nominees – including Get Out, which earned nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay. The love for the Jordan Peele's across-the-board hit was a rarity for a slew of reasons, including the fact that the filmmaker became only the fifth black man to ever be nominated for Best Director. But perhaps most remarkable was the fact that it nabbed a Best Picture slot: Depending on how flexible you are in defining "horror,

Sundance Review: Hereditary is a Bone-Chilling Horror Thriller in the Vein of Rosemary's Baby

I didn't see a lot of horror movies at Sundance this year. Usually, there are a few horror films that I see, but this year there was only one true horror movie that I saw... Hereditary. It was the last movie that I saw at the festival and holy shit! It was so good and the perfect film to end the festival on.

I'm a big fan of the horror genre and usually, there's always one great horror film to come out of Sundance and Hereditary was that film. It's more of a psychological horror thriller that messes with your head and it goes into some creepy-ass bone-chilling territory.

There's not a lot of in-your-face horror thrills in this movie. This is a slow burn horror movie where the suspense just builds and builds until it explodes at the end. A lot of the scary aspects of the film lurks

‘The Happy Prince’ Review: Oscar Wilde Is a Depressed Loner in Rupert Everett’s Humorless Biopic — Sundance 2018

‘The Happy Prince’ Review: Oscar Wilde Is a Depressed Loner in Rupert Everett’s Humorless Biopic — Sundance 2018
Most people know Oscar Wilde as the preeminent source of British wit, a high-society raconteur whose plays and novels epitomize what it means to be the life of the party. That characterization recedes to the shadows in “The Happy Prince,” in which Rupert Everett directs and stars as the flamboyant literary giant at the end of his life. Anyone expecting Wildean banter will be sorely disappointed — think more of an autobiographical spin on “The Portrait of Dorian Gray” than “The Importance of Being Earnest” — but it’s Everett’s formidable investment in the role that rescues the movie from being a total letdown. Nevertheless, “The Happy Prince” largely amounts to a bland rumination on Wilde’s lesser-known decline.

Why 2017 was the year of Stephen King on screen

Ryan Lambie Dec 8, 2017

As The Dark Tower heads to disc, we take a look back at a screen year that's been big for Stephen King adaptations...

In the late 60s and early 1970s, a new generation of horror storytellers brought the genre out of the past and into the troubled, turbulent present. In cinemas, such directors as George A Romero, Tobe Hooper and David Cronenberg ushered in a new age of modern, fleshier horror, where the images were disturbing and the capes and castles of old Dracula and Frankenstein movies were entirely absent.

Over in the literary world, such writers as Ira Levin (Rosemary's Baby) and William Peter Batty (The Exorcist) were injecting creating a similarly seismic impact, sparking a pulp horror boom that would last until well into the 1980s. Few authors, however, have enjoyed the fame or the sheer longevity of Stephen King. Still in his 20s when his first novel,

5 Questions We All Have About Netflix's New Sabrina the Teenage Witch Series

  • BuzzSugar
Something wicked this way comes. After teasing the appearance of Sabrina Spellman on Riverdale for months now, it seems like the teenage witch is actually getting her own series. While Warner Bros. Television and The CW, the network behind the Archie Comics drama, were initially developing the new one-hour drama, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, for the 2018-2019 season, it now seems that the series will live on a different network: Netflix! That being said, this certainly won't be the lovable Sabrina (previously played by Melissa Joan Hart) we all remember - this one will be much more sinister. Fortunately, we know a few actresses who could pull it off. RelatedEverything We Know About Riverdale's Season 2 1. Who's Involved? Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who is also Archie Comics' chief creative officer, is writing the adaptation. He'll executive produce alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Jon Goldwater, and Lee Toland Krieger, who will direct the pilot.

The Riverdale Companion Series Sabrina Lands a 2 Season Order at Netflix

A couple months ago we learned that The CW was developing a Riverdale companion series based on the Sabrina the Teenage Witch graphic novel called The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

Netflix has just grabbed the series adaptation and they have already ordered two seasons that will consist of a total of 20-episodes. According to THR, the development team is now on the hunt to cast the series. 

I am slowly getting through Riverdale. A lot of people keep telling me how good it is, but I'm really having a hard time getting into it. Whenever I say I'm quitting they keep telling me to keep going. I keep wondering if they're just messing with me!

Anyway, this Sabrina series sounds much more like something I could be into.
