<p><img alt="Wonder Woman Lucy Davis" src="/images_arrownews/daviswonder913.jpg" title="" /></p> <p>British actress Lucy Davis has almost 60 credits to her name, so there&#39;s a chance you could know her from several different projects, but the most popular ones are the original&nbsp;UK version of The Office, <a href="http://www.joblo.com/horror-movies/reviews/shaun-of-the-dead">SHAUN OF THE DEAD</a>, and last year&#39;s hit WONDER WOMAN (pictured). Davis has now secured a role in a genre project that&#39;s getting a good amount of attention these days, Netflix&#39;s dark, horrific reboot of the Sabrina the Teenage Witch property.</p> <p>Possibly titled <span style="color:#FF0000;">Chilling Adventures of Sabrina</span>, this new series was created by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and is said to be tonally in the vein of <a href="http://www.joblo.com/horror-movies/reviews/rosemarys-baby">ROSEMARY&#39;S BABY</a> and <a href="http://www.joblo.com/arrow/exorcist.htm">THE EXORCIST</a>. The show will find&nbsp;</p> <blockquote> <p>Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal, while fighting the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.&nbsp;</p> <p>Sabrina Spellman is described as an empowered young woman &mdash; half-human, half-witch &mdash; who is just beginning her dark education as a sorceress, even as she tries to maintain a normal life as a sophomore at Baxter High. Intelligent, compassionate and brave to the point of recklessness, Sabrina is all that stands between us and the forces of darkness that threaten our world.</p> </blockquote> <p>Kiernan Shipka is set to star as Sabrina, with Jaz Sinclair as her best friend Rosalind Walker, Chance Perdomo as Sabrina&#39;s warlock cousin Ambrose, and Michelle Gomez as Sabrina&#39;s favorite teacher Mary Wardell, who becomes possessed by the devil&#39;s handmaiden Madam Satan.</p> <p>Davis joins the cast as Hilda Spellman, one of Sabrina&#39;s two witch aunts. &quot;More nurturing than her other aunt Zelda, Hilda&#39;s motherly nature and warm sense of humor belie a wicked, ghoulish streak. She is as adept at brewing spite jars against her family&#39;s enemies as she is at concocting love potions for the students at Baxter High.&quot;</p> <p>The role of Hilda was filled by Caroline Rhea on the previous Sabrina the Teenage Witch series, which ran from 1996 to 2003.</p> <p>Netflix has given this reboot a two season, 20 episode order. The series is being executive produced by Aguirre-Sacasa, Lee Toland Krieger, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater.</p> <p><iframe allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="514" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/oIWUIHINn80" width="913"></iframe></p>
