Sabrina Spellman will be getting a new show on Netflix, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, a spin-off of The CW’s Riverdale based on the Archie Horror comicbook of the same name by writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Robert Hack. Casting for the show, which will include Sabrina, her bewitching aunts Zelda and Hilda, and her cousin Ambrose, has already started, and production begins in February 2018.
Casting for Sabrina’s trusty feline companion, Salem Saberhagen, and the teenage witch’s love interest, Harvey Kinkle, haven’t been announced yet either. Here are the breakdowns for Sabrina and her aunts, courtesy of That Hashtag Show:
NEW: [SABRINA SPELLMAN] Female, Open ethnicity, legal 18 or 18+ to play 16. Sabrina is an empowered young woman, half-human, half-witch, struggling to reconcile her dual natures. She is just beginning her dark education as a sorceress, even as she tries to maintain some semblance of a normal life as a sophomore at Baxter High. Sabrina’s intelligent, compassionate, and brave to the point of recklessness. She challenges witch-doctrine at every turn. She is fiercely loyal to her family and friends; wickedly funny, and in the middle of a star-crossed romance with her classmate Harvey Kinkle. Sabrina is all that stands between us and the Forces of Darkness that threaten our world. SERIES LEAD.
[HILDA SPELLMAN] Female, late 30s to early 40s, All Ethnicities. Hilda is the kinder of the Spellman sisters who are raising Sabrina, though her nurturing nature belies a more ruthless side. She is a healer, a potion-maker, sweet-as-pie until you cross her or anyone she leaves. Operating the local funeral home, the sisters hide their witchery from the world while teaching Sabrina spells and incantations at home…ASP SERIES REGULAR
[ZELDA SPELLMAN] Female, late 30s to early 40s, All Ethnicities. Zelda is the harsher of the Spellman sisters who helped raise Sabrina, though her sternness and tough facade might be hiding a more…mothering soul. Unlike Hilda, Zelda claims that she has never known love—her devotion to the Dark Lord is all-consuming—which is why people looking for a love-potion go to Hilda; those looking to make a spite-jar go to Zelda…ASP SERIES REGULAR
