Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Get ready for an intense look into the world of magic and witchcraft with THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA, a new one-hour dark drama/horror project based on the classic Archie Comics character. The new project is eyed to debut in The CWs 2018-19 television season as a companion to RIVERDALE.

The new show will be written by Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer and RIVERDALE Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, directed by Lee Toland Krieger, and produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Brothers Studios. Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schecter, Jon Goldwater, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Lee Toland Krieger serve as executive producers.

SABRINA will draw from the critically acclaimed CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA comic book series from Archie Comics written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Robert Hack, detailing the compelling and shocking re-imagining of Sabrina the Teenage Witchs occult origins. This dark coming-of-age story deals with horror, the occult, and witchcraft and will see Sabrina struggle to reconcile her dual nature of being half-witch and half-mortal while protecting her family and the world from the forces of evil.

Casting and additional news on the new series will be revealed in the months to come.

I guess whoever called Sabrina showing up is right. I imagine they're doing a backdoor pilot in Riverdale season 2 for this show.

They have to work in a Melissa Joan Hart cameo somehow. I wonder what she'll make of this? It sounds very different to her version, which was a sitcom.

Even if this show is going more dark/horror/dramatic, I still want Nick Bakay as the voice of Salem. And a side role for Melissa Joan Hart and Caroline Rhea.
The complete series boxset has been tempting me so hard for awhile.

I could see Melissa Joan Hart playing as one of Sabrina's aunts in this. She's old enough now.

Why am I not surprised after all the talk people stirred of Sabrina during Riverdale. It would be interesting if they did a backdoor pilot. But I could also just see them doing this as a new show and play the potential link between the two casually.

I'm excited for the potential of this. I'd imagine it'll be something along the lines of Supernatural meets Riverdale

Wait, REALLY? They're gonna adapt THIS into a series?

As one who's (uncomfortably) read some of Chilling Adventures, and who still has some good memories of the old Sabrina stuff, this is a little weird. But Riverdale managed to work out well, so perhaps this might too.

What about Chilling Adventures makes you think it'd be bad? And to be clear, never read a single Sabrina comic(or Archie for that matter) in my life. So I'm assuming Chilling is just a little more...serious or "darker" themed story?

Yeah, it's a part of Archie comics "Archie horror" where each story gets a horror twist

Afterlife with Archie is Archie with Zombies, for a zombie story it isn't bad, but they are all mainly predictable

Jughead the hunger (just found this out) it's another archie story, but with were wolves.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina goes to the max with the whole witch schtick, blood and everything, it's pretty fun. Even features Archie's old character "Madam Satan" from their days of "Pep comics"

and while they haven't announced an ongoing yet, more than likely Josie and the pussy cats be getting one, they appeared in Afterlife with Archie (As like Chilling Adventures Sabrina did) and they are vampires


the problem is with these series is that it takes forever for issues. Afterlife with Archie, since 2013, has 10 issues

Ah, no, I didn't say that Chilling Adventures was bad, I was just surprised that they'd be adapting it considering that, as was just said, Chilling Adventures is a lot, LOT more than just being serious or darker. Chilling Adventures can get downright disturbing and frightening at times. But it was marketed as a horror comic right from the get-go, so it's hard to be angry at a comic for just simply doing what it's been marketed as.

My concern is what the audience might think since Sabrina with the MJH show, the cartoon series, and the light-hearted goofy original comic may still have an impression.

Well people took to Riverdale pretty well as opposed to the comics? But I gotcha with Chilling. Maybe they're only taking from it the more serious nature, some darker themes, etc. Not necessarily the horror/gruesomeness of it, never know.

Another horror themed show! That's fantastic. Because I woke up today and I thought to myself, there just aren't enough gory homicides passed off as entertainment on TV already.
