Netflix's Sabrina the Teenage Witch series gets official title

There has been a few back and forths going on when it comes to Netflix's gritty reboot of SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH (still can't believe I'm typing that out). One of the discussions is if we should be covering the series at all here at AITH. And the other is about what the hell the series is actually called!

Well, one of those discussions can be put to rest (for now) as it the reboot's showrunner just took to Twitter to announce that the new series is officially called CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA. Yeah, there's no "The" at the beginning. Take note, fellow writers.

Synopsis:

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. Tonally in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, this adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature — half-witch, half-mortal — while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.

The series stars Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina, Ross Lynch as Harvey Kinkle, Miranda Otto as Sabrina's disciplinarian aunt Zelda; Lucy Davis as her nurturing aunt Hilda; Jaz Sinclair as her best friend Rosalind Walker; Chance Perdomo as her warlock cousin Ambrose; Michelle Gomez as Sabrina's teacher Mary Wardell, who becomes possessed by the devil's handmaiden Madam Satan; Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood, High Priest of the Church of Night and Dean of the Academy of the Unseen Arts, a man with a "terrifying dark agenda"; Bronson Pinchot as Baxter High's villainous puritanical principal George Hawthorne; and Tati Gabrielle as Prudence, leader of a trio of witches called the Weird Sisters and a character who has a possibly life-threatening grudge against Sabrina.

Netflix has ordered two seasons of this new show, with each season consisting of ten episodes. The series is said to be tonally in the vein of ROSEMARY'S BABY and THE EXORCIST.
