Summer may not be over yet, but Halloween season is fast approaching... and you know what that means: flying witches and black cats. That’s right, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina television series is coming soon to Netflix, and the teenage witch will not be coming alone. Along with heartthrob Harvey Kinkle and her aunts Zelma and Hilda, miss Spellman will once again share the screen with an adorable black cat named Salem.
While Netflix has yet to debut any official footage from the Riverdale spin-off series, the Instagram account of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been having fun teasing the darkness ahead, as well as the type of black magic we will see on the show. But it’s not all serious. Various posts on the account have showcased the cast of the series having fun together. Plus, today, the series made its funniest post yet, by recreating a fan-favorite moment from the 90s’ series, Sabrina The Teenage Witch to celebrate International Cat Day.
The image features the series’ adorable feline star ‘holding’ a nail file, which is meant as an homage to the classic Salem scenes from the ‘90s sitcom that saw the grumpy, human-turned-cat filing his nails. Sabrina Spellman’s cat was a fan-favorite character in the original series, with his dry sense of humor and sarcastic comments earning him some of the best and funniest lines on the show.
Based on the comic book series of the same name, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is not a reboot of the 90s’ sitcom Sabrina The Teenage Witch. Instead, much like Riverdale, it is meant to be a much darker, cinematic and twisted take on the Archie Comics mythos. For this series, the world of Sabrina is one filled with monsters and demons, prophecies, sacrifices, frightening covens and black magic.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has received a two-season order from Netflix with 10 episodes each, for a total of 20 episodes. Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is also serving as showrunner of the series.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina stars Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina Spellman, Michelle Gomez as Mary Wardwell/Madam Satan, Jaz Sinclair as Rosalind Walker, Chance Perdomo as Ambrose Spellman, Lucy Davis as Hilda Spellman, Miranda Otto as Zelda Spellman, Ross Lynch as Harvey Kinkle, and Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood. The series premieres on Netflix Oct. 26.
