The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Comes to Netflix

Though Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa had been developing a television version of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina to go alongside Riverdale, which he is the creator and showrunner for, it turns Sabrina is actually heading to Netflix, complete with a two season pick-up. According to Variety, “The one-hour drama is based on the comic “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” which reimagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult, and witchcraft. The series is described as being tonally in the vein of horror classics like “Rosemary’s Baby” and “The Exorcist,” and will see Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family, and the daylight world humans inhabit.”
