Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is taking Social Media by Storm

Netflix just recently released an original series last month, and it is currently blowing up on social media. Based on the classic sitcom, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, the new dark reboot Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is taking the internet by storm.

Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) is a Witch/Human hybrid, trying to find her place in the world. The show takes place in Greendale, and for all the Riverdale fans out there, Greendale’s only one town over, taking place in the same universe. She attends Baxter High as a regular student. Though, her Aunt Zelda (Miranda Otto), along with many other witches are pressuring her to go to the Witch School, The Academy of Unseen Arts, and become a full witch by having a Dark Baptism.

Meanwhile, Sabrina is a bit hesitant about completely crossing over into the “witch world.” She wants to keep living a normal life like any other teen, with her boyfriend, Harvey (Ross Lynch) and her two best friends Roz (Jaz Sinclair) and Susie (Lachlan Watson). Most importantly, Sabrina wants to stay away from the evils of that world and live a free life. Her cousin, Ambrose (Chase Perdomo) -who has already become everyone’s favorite character- and her Aunt Hilda (Lucy Davis) support her decision.

Complete with mind-controlling bullies, possessed teachers and a very loyal cat, this supernatural horror is quickly becoming a teen favorite. Sophomore Jesse Henrikson loves the Netflix Original, saying, “It’s a very interesting show. The way the writers and actors portray the roles of the characters from the comics are somehow similar yet different at the same time, and the intricate way they do it is outstanding. The show is taking a darker turn, but the creators beautifully wrote the characters to react to this in a really accurate way.”

Part 2 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is already in production, and you can watch Part 1 exclusively on Netflix.
