Sporting her signature black headband as well as the red-and-black ensemble first revealed by Aguirre-Sacasa in set photos, Shipka certainly looks the part of the teenage which, who's beginning her dark education as a sorceress while navigating the trials and tribulations of high school.
The series is based on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the comic by Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Robert Hack that takes a horror-inspired approach to the well-known character, in the vein of the celebrated Afterlife with Archie.
Initially developed as a spinoff to the popular CW series Riverdale, plans for the two series to cross over were abandoned when Sabrina was picked up by Netflix.
The first season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will be in production through June, with a premiere expected later this year. The series already has a two-season commitment from Netflix.
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.
