The search for the next Sabrina Spellman is underway! According to That Hashtag Show, the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is currently casting the titular role who is described as followed:
“Female, Open Ethnicity, to play 16.
Sabrina is an half-human, half-witch,empowered young woman just beginning her dark education as a sorceress, even as she tries to maintain a normal life as a sophomore at Baxter High. Sabrina’s intelligent, compassionate, and brave to the point of recklessness.
She is fiercely loyal to her family and friends; wickedly funny and in the middle of a star-crossed romance with her classmate Harvey Kinkle. She challenges witch-doctrine at every turn. She is all that stands between us an the Forces of Darkness that threaten our world.”
Per the breakdown, we now know that Sabrina’s iconic love Harvey Kinkle will appear in the series. But no breakdown for his character has been revealed, yet. The Sabrina reboot was announced last month as a potential companion series to the Archie Comics drama Riverdale.
Roberto Acquire-Sacasa, the showrunner of Riverdale, is writing the pilot and will executive produce the series. Fellow Riverdale producers Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Jon Goldwater, and Lee Toland Krieger are attached to executive produce the new Sabrina show.
Krieger, a Riverdale alum director, will helm the pilot should CW go forward with it. While the series is most likely going to happen, it should be noted that it’s only in development stages and hasn’t been given a formal pilot order yet.
