Netflix has shared an extended glimpse at the character and the supernatural world she inhabits. Kiernan Shipka steps into the famous role.
Lee Toland Krieger takes up the same role on the pilot, after previously jumping behind the camera for “You” and the aforementioned “Riverdale.” The latter series also served as the first showrunning gig for Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who created this TV version of the Archie Comics classics. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is based off of Aguirre-Sacasa’s comic series of the same name.
Aside from Shipka and her furry friend, Jaz Sinclair, Bronson Pinchot, Chance Perdomo, Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis, and Richard Coyle also round out the main cast.
“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” premieres October 26 on Netflix.
