What is Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (TV) About?
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is an American supernatural horror television series created by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for Netflix. It is based on the Archie comic book series of the same name and explores the story of Sabrina Spellman, portrayed by Kiernan Shipka, who is on the verge of her 16th birthday. At this pivotal age, she must reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal while standing against the evil forces that pose threats to her family and the human world. The series delves into darker and more horror-centric themes than previous adaptations of the character, drawing on elements of the occult. The cast includes Ross Lynch, Lucy Davis, Chance Perdomo, Michelle Gomez, and others, who form the ensemble around Sabrina in the town of Greendale. Launched with a straight-to-series order by Netflix, the show was initially conceived as a companion to Riverdale, another series based on characters from Archie Comics, but it eventually took its own path as a standalone series. Filming primarily occurred in Vancouver, Canada. The narrative distinguishes itself with its dark tone and stylish cinematography, blending supernatural elements with coming-of-age drama in this modern take on a classic comic book icon.
The first episode of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina aired on October 26, 2018 and the most recent episode to air was on December 31, 2020.
