Netflix's 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' gets cool new poster and this time Salem has spot
The latest picture tease didn't feature Shipka or any other lead, instead fueling the buzz with a silhouetted version of the witch along with her favorite cat, Salem
It's time to prepare for the wicked and the wild. Work on the TV reboot of the teenage witch Sabrina has begun in full swing at Netflix with actress Kiernan Shipka filling in the shoes of this fan-favorite role. And in order to keep this buzz alive, the streaming giant most recently released the official poster for the adaptation titled, 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina!'
"Something wicked this way comes," read the caption shared alongside the first glimpse of the poster shared online by Archie Comics, which also happens to be the inspiration behind the wildly popular Netflix adaptation 'Riverdale' — the KJ Apa, Camila Mendes, and Cole Sprouse starring — series.
While 'Riverdale's' popularity helped with the groundwork for the gradually-brewing Archie universe on the small screen, Netflix has been furthering the progress with the upcoming Sabrina reboot. Interestingly, the latest picture tease didn't feature Shipka or any other lead from the show — instead fueling the buzz with a silhouetted version of the witch along with her favorite cat, Salem — an appearance that is sure to fuel anticipation.
After all, for the longest time fans have been concerned about the possible appearance of the cat who has a significant role in the comics iteration. With the latest promo release though, one thing is certain Netflix is not wasting any time when it comes to hyping up the upcoming series. It might have been less than a year since the announcement of the project, but in the following months the streamer has been more than proactive in ensuring that the word is spread about 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina'.
“After I read the script, I became immediately obsessed with the role, with how Sabrina is portrayed and how badass the whole thing is,” Shipka, teasing the plot, told Comic Book earlier. “It's going to be really dark and really cool, and have this very like macabre take on everything. I'm really pumped to be a witch. Who wouldn't be?”
She added, "I mean, I love The Crucible, and I love kind of the like dark Rosemary's Baby vibe of things. And this is the direction that it's going to go, which is really fun.”
Joining Shipka in the Netflix reboot will be other cast members like Lucy Davis, Miranda Otto, Richard Coyle, Ross Lynch, Tati Gabrielle, Michelle Gomez, and Chance Perdomo. 'Riverdale' showrunner Aguirre-Sacasa executive produces the Sabrina series alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater.
