Now that Netflix has announced that ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ will debut on October 26, expect more news and teases to build interest. The latest is a photo of stars Kiernan Shipka and Ross Lynch as Sabrina and boyfriend Harvey Kinkle from the set. It appears that Sabrina is getting a lift in Harvey’s truck for a scene.

Earlier this year, Shipka spoke to ComicBook.com about the series, stating:
“After I read the script, I became immediately obsessed with the role, with how Sabrina is portrayed and how badass the whole thing is. 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?
“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.”
‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ is based on the famous Archie Comics character and as such was originally planned as a spin-off from existing hit ‘Riverdale’. But now that it will instead be distributed by Netflix, it appears any plans to connect the two have been dropped, at least according to ‘Riverdale’ star Lili Reinhart who plays Betty Cooper:
“The decision was ultimately made to move to Netflix to make these Riverdale and Sabrina shows completely separate universes. I don’t really know what [showrunner] Roberto [Aguire-Sacasa]’s plan is for Sabrina or what aspect of the supernatural or magic will be used. I know that doesn’t exist in Riverdale. At least right now. So it wouldn’t make sense for those two worlds to collide.”
Joining Shipka and Lynch on ‘Sabrina’ are Miranda Otto (Aunt Zelda), Lucy Davis (Aunt Hilda), Chance Perdomo (Ambrose Spellman), Bronson Pinchot (principal George Hawthorne), Richard Coyle (Father Blackwood), Jaz Sinclair (Rosalind Walker), Lachlan Watson (Susie Putnam), Tati Gabrielle (Prudence), Abigail F. Cowen (Dorcas), Adeline Rudolph (Agatha), Gavin Leatherwood (Nicholas Scratch), and Michelle Gomez ( teacher Mary Wardell).
