‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ Season 2 Trailer: The Now-Wicked Witch Is Back (Video)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Welcome back, witches.

Netflix dropped the trailer for “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” Season 2 on Monday morning to give fans their first real taste of the delicious dark side Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) will be dealing in when the series returns with a new batch of episodes next month.

Here is the official description for the upcoming season: Part 2 finds Sabrina exploring her darker side, curious to learn more about her heritage, while struggling to maintain her friendships in the mortal world. Romantically, Sabrina is caught in an unholy love triangle with between sexy warlock Nicholas Scratch and salt-of-the-Earth mortal Harvey Kinkle. Meanwhile, the Dark Lord, Madame Satan, and Father Blackwood continue to conjure chaos in the Spellman household and the town of Greendale. And they aren’t the only ones trying to raise hell. Everything is in question … relationships, identity, true intentions … when the devil’s work is at hand.

“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.” Described as “tonally in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist,” the series follows Sabrina as she wrestles “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.”

Shipka stars alongside Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis, Ross Lynch, Michelle Gomez, Chance Perdomo, Jaz Sinclair, Richard Coyle, Tati Gabrielle, Adeline Rudolph, Abigail Cowen, Lachlan Watson and Gavin Leatherwood.

“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” Season 2 launches April 5 on Netflix.

Just when you thought you’d be in serious Wicca withdrawal all winter long, Netflix has some “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” renewal news that is sure to brighten your Winter Solstice.

Less than a week after dropping that surprise holiday special, the streamer has ordered 16 additional episodes of its Kiernan Shipka-led dark take on the Archie Comics teen witch, which will begin production in 2019 and launch in two batches, Parts 3 and 4. No word yet on when the new installments will drop or how the sixteen episodes will be divided among the two parts.

And yes, TheWrap has confirmed Netflix is going with “parts” instead of “seasons” when it comes to “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.” As all you witches know, Part 1 debuted back in October and Part 2 received an April 5, 2019 launch date last month.

“Praise Satan! I’m so grateful to my partners at Warner Brothers, Netflix, Berlanti Television, and Archie Productions for supporting this darker vision of the world’s most famous teen witch,” creator and executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said in a statement. “And I’m thrilled to be continuing to tell Sabrina’s chilling adventures with our incredible cast and crew, led by the unstoppable Kiernan Shipka.”

“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.” Described as “tonally in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist,” the series follows Sabrina as she wrestles “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.”

(Warning: This post contains spoilers for “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale”)

We have good news and bad news for all you “Riverdale” and “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” fans hoping for a crossover.

The good: The “Sabrina” holiday episode, “A Midwinter’s Tale,” does feature an Archie Comics reference. The bad: It’s not a direct shout-out to The CW series set in the same universe as Netflix’s dark take on the teen witch.

“The biggest reference isn’t really a ‘Riverdale’ reference, but it is an Archie Comics reference,” Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Chief Creative Officer at Archie Comics and the showrunner on both The CW’s “Riverdale” and Netflix’s “Sabrina,” told TheWrap in an interview ahead of the holiday episode’s launch on Friday.

“Susie [played by Lachlan Watson] is dressed up as a Christmas elf called Jingles,” Aguirre-Sacasa says. “And Jingles the Christmas Elf is an actual Archie Comics character who appears in Riverdale every Christmas to have mischief with the kids. So I’ve been wanting to tell a Jingles the Christmas Elf story for a long, long time. So it’s not from ‘Riverdale’ the TV show, but it is from the Archie comic books.”

And Sabrina’s (Kiernan Shipka) friend is pretty stoked about the gig they have working as an elf assistant to a mall Santa, played by the grumpy Mr. Bartell. Well, that is until Susie finds out he’s actually a demon who turns children into life-size figurines and is coming for them, too.

‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’: That Christmas Ghost Story Was Originally Planned for the Pilot

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

(Warning: This post contains spoilers for “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale”)

“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale” is filled with family drama — just as any good holiday story should be. And the central event that kicks off the special installment’s conflicts — a seance Kiernan Shipka’s Sabrina conducts to summon her dead mother, Diane — is actually a plot point they’ve been trying to do since before the first season launched in October.

“That’s another thing that I’ve wanted to do from the start,” “Sabrina” creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told TheWrap in an interview ahead of the holiday episode’s launch Friday. “In the original outline for the pilot, Sabrina was going to try to contact her mother to ask about going down the Path of Night versus the Path of Light. And then we kept putting it off and putting it off. And then, you know, there is a great tradition of ghosts obviously during the holidays and there is a very big tradition of seances happening during the holidays, so it felt like, ‘Oh, good, we can finally tell that story.’ So that’s where it came from!”

The primary reason our teen witch enlists Prudence and the Weird Sisters to help her summon her deceased mother in a ritual using her mom’s wedding dress is to find out why Diana is trapped in limbo — and to get some advice about her on-hold relationship with mortal Harvey.

And Roberto says that while “the Harvey-Sabrina relationship is something we’re still exploring very much” when “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” Part 2 arrives in April, “it’s very different from Season 1.”

Aguirre-Sacasa told TheWrap we will also dive into the mystery surrounding the deaths of Diana and Sabrina’s father Edward, a High Priest in the Church of Night, who were supposedly killed in a plane crash when she was a baby.

“You will definitely learn much more about Sabrina’s parents and Sabrina’s parents’ relationship with Aunt Hilda and Aunt Zelda in the second half of the season. Absolutely,” he says. “That will sort of be one of the mysteries we’re always dealing with.”

‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’: Here’s How They Turned the Holiday Episode Around So Quickly

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Merry Early Christmas, witches!

The “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale” will arrive next Friday. The special standalone installment was crafted specifically to bring you some cheer while you await the Kiernan Shipka-led series’ Part 2 launch in April. Actually, it was originally just created because “Sabrina” creator and showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa realized he hadn’t checked his Part 1 list twice in the holiday episode department.

“That was not always the plan,” Aguirre-Sacasa told TheWrap in a recent interview when we asked if he had this idea in mind from the start. “In fact, we were working on the first episode for Part 2 — which was not a Christmas episode — and I was having dinner with one of the writers and we sort of realized, ‘We’ve done a Halloween episode and a Thanksgiving episode [in Part 1] and we skipped over Christmas.’ And as soon as I realized that, I was like, ‘We’re doing a Christmas episode!’”

Also Read: Watch Creepy Santa in Trailer for the ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ Holiday Special (Video)

“And I frantically reached out to our unit producer and said, ‘Can we switch gears and do a Christmas episode?’ And he said, ‘Nope, we’re too far down the line on the one that was specifically written as the premiere for the second part,’” Aguirre-Sacasa said. “So what we did is we shot them out of order. So we shot what would be Episode 12 first and then we shot Episode 11, which was the Christmas episode.”

Then it all came down to Netflix — which launched “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” Season 1 on Oct. 26 — wanting to bring fans even more of the teen witch’s tale as soon as possible, even though Part 2 is still in production.

“And then no sooner had we decided to do a Christmas episode, very early on Netflix was saying, ‘Is there something we can drop as a standalone in between Seasons 1 and 2?’” he added. “And we said, yeah. Because we made an episode that was by and large self-contained, but that there are still elements that carry it through and the realizations and relationships and mythology — it sort of threads the needle. And so we figured out a story that could do both.”

In the holiday-themed one-off, the Church of Night, like all covens, celebrates the Winter Solstice — the longest night of the year — when families gather around the Yule Fire to sing Pagan carols and tell ghost stories. But the holidays are also a time for guests and visitors — both welcome and unwelcome — so you never know what might come down the chimney.

The streamer released a trailer for the holiday episode Tuesday and a teaser for “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” Part 2 a few days before that, revealing that installment will launch in April. Even though “Sabrina” got a two-season order from Netflix right off the bat, that spring premiere date is much earlier than most fans were expecting the next batch of episodes to be released. But it doesn’t seem like a crazy idea, given how popular the show is — and because the showrunner says they’ve almost finished shooting those upcoming stories.

“We’re pretty deep into the second half of the season,” Aguirre-Sacasa said. “I think we’re shooting the penultimate episode!”

Aguirre-Sacasa — who also created and showruns The CW’s “Riverdale” (another dark Archie Comics adaptation) — says he’s not concerned with the episode switch messing with the flow when “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” returns next spring.

“Yeah, the episode that will kick off Part 2, we had written that as a premiere episode for the second part, so that’s what it very much feels like,” Aguirre-Sacasa said. “And that’ll really launch us out in a really full-blooded, muscular way and is filled with revelations. Really big, big stories start in that episode.”

Check back with TheWrap after the holiday episode drops for more spoiler-heavy content from our interview with Roberto.

“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale” launches Dec. 14 on Netflix.

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” will return with a holiday special later this month — and Season 2 next spring.

Less than six weeks after Season 1 launched, Netflix has revealed its Kiernan Shipka-led take on the Archie Comics half-witch, half-mortal teen’s tale will return with its second installment on April 5, 2019.

In a new 44-second teaser released Saturday, the now platinum-haired, dressed-all-in-black Sabrina (Shipka) is taking a walk on the wild side and embracing her dark new life after signing the Book of the Beast.

The video (set to The Runaways’ “Cherry Bomb”) shows our 16-year-old heroine dancing sensually with Prudence, the other Weird Sisters and Nick Scratch (gasp!) at the Academy of Unseen Art, Sabrina’s ex Harvey and her best friend Roz looking cozy in the Baxter High hallways (more gasps!), and Sabrina and Harvey kissing again (extra gasps!).

Aside from the personal teen drama brewing ahead, the clip includes the young witch coming face to face with a wolf in the woods, setting up a dark ritual and pouring gasoline all around the halls of her old high school — and lighting a match with a demon’s encouragement.

Meanwhile, Aunt Hilda is getting all dolled up and Aunt Zelda seems more than a little concerned with Sabrina’s new attitude. And Ambrose is being his usual cool self.

The teaser concludes with the warning, “Get ready witches,” and a title card that reads, “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” Part 2 — April 5, 2019.

But don’t worry, you won’t actually have to wait that long for more “Sabrina,” as the holiday episode — “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale” — drops Dec. 14. And if you want some scoop on Season 2, you can read TheWrap’s recent interview with showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa about the next batch of episodes here.

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Are you an Ambrose Spellman fan? Great, then TheWrap’s here to help you eat your heart out with the story of how the “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” character’s catchphrase came to be.

If you’ve already binged the first season of Netflix’s new take on the half-witch teen, you totally know what we’re referring to here: Ambrose — played by British actor Chance Perdomo — refers to Kiernan Shipka’s Sabrina with a simple, but oh-so-powerful “cousin.” And he does it over and over and over again. (Not that we’re complaining.)

The love for Ambrose — and the way he calls out his ‘cuz — runs so deep, super-cuts have been created in his honor (see below):

And this obsession is not lost on “Sabrina” creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who tells TheWrap: “Yes, yes, I’m well aware of that. I’m well aware of that. (laughs) Yes, he uses cousin a lot.”

Aguirre-Sacasa, who is also the creator and showrunner on The CW’s “Riverdale” — another dark take on the Archie Comics universe — says this overuse of the term of endearment came about because of his own writing style, and Perdomo’s ownership of the word.

“All of the actors [on ‘Sabrina’ and ‘Riverdale’] are always making fun of me because they are always using the other characters’ names. And I always say that it’s because, you know, it never gets old if one of you says ‘Jug,’” he said, referring to Cole Sprouse’s “Riverdale” character, Archie Andrew’s best friend Jughead Jones.

“And I asked Chance, ‘What do you think about that?’ And he said, ‘Well people just love hearing the words Jughead Jones. And it never gets old.’ And I think with Ambrose, it never gets old hearing him call Sabrina ‘cousin,’ which is the fun of him doing it.”

Oh, if you haven’t already heard, Aguirre-Sacasa had originally considered Perdomo for the role of Jughead before he cast him on “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.”

“I think Chance is a star,” he said. “He auditioned for ‘Riverdale’ for Jughead. And I remembered his audition and when we were getting ready to do ‘Sabrina,’ I was like, ‘There’s this kid who read for Jughead and I think he’d be a great Ambrose.’”

Thank the Dark Lord he landed that part instead, since “cousin” would truly be wasted on Jughead.

“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” Season 1 is available for streaming now on Netflix.

(Warning: This post contains spoilers through the Season 1 finale of “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”)

“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” will serve fans a blast from the past on the Netflix series’ upcoming holiday episode, which will feature a flashback to Sabrina Spellman’s childhood. And “Haunting of Hill House” star Mckenna Grace — the actress cast as the younger version of the teen half witch, half mortal — was selected by Kiernan Shipka, the titular character, herself.

“When Kiernan heard we were doing Li’l Sabrina, she texted me a picture of her with McKenna and said, ‘You have to get Mckenna. She’s like me as a little girl and we’re dead ringers,’” series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told TheWrap in an interview Wednesday, after the casting news broke. “And then we reached out [to Mckenna] and said, ‘Do you want to be Li’l Sabrina for the Christmas special?’ And she said yeah. And it was as easy as that! It came from Kiernan though.”

(See photos of Grace above and Shipka below for confirmation of that whole “dead ringer” bit.)

Grace will guest star as “precocious tot” Li’l Sabrina on the show’s upcoming holiday episode, “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale.” Per Netflix, “While The Church of Night celebrates the Solstice, that doesn’t stop Li’l Sabrina from asking Santa for something special.”

Here’s the official description for the holiday installment: The Church of Night, like all covens, celebrates the Winter Solstice – the longest night of the year – when families gather around the Yule Fire to sing pagan carols and tell ghost stories. But the holidays are also a time for guests and visitors – both welcome and unwelcome – so you never know what might come down the chimney.

In other “Sabrina” casting news, it was also revealed this morning that “Buffy” and “Angel” alum Alexis Denisof (above left) and “The Originals” star Jedidiah Goodacre (above right) have both signed on for recurring guest roles on Season 2.

Denisof plays Mary Wardwell’s (Michelle Gomez) boyfriend, Adam Masters. Handsome and charming, Adam returns to Greendale after a stint overseas working with Physicians Without Frontiers — unaware that his fiancé has been taken over by the demoness Madam Satan.

“You know very early on we knew we knew we were going to tell a story after Madam Satan takes over Mary Wardwell — we thought there would be a really great story where Mary’s boyfriend, or someone from Mary’s life, would come and not know that Mary has been taken over by Madam Satan,” Aguirre-Sacasa told TheWrap. “And we thought that could be a very interesting story to have Madam Satan meet someone who didn’t know her as Madam Satan, and only knows her as Mary Wardwell. And we thought it would be interesting to see how he treated her, and if that affected how she thought of herself and how she thought of her relationship with the Dark Lord. So that was something that we have talked about since the start of Season 1.”

Goodacre will portray the Netflix series’ spin on iconic literary character Dorian Gray, who on “Sabrina” is a warlock. The owner of Dorian’s Gray Room, an exclusive nightclub, this enigmatic gentleman of an indeterminate age is very good at keeping secrets, especially his own — a cursed portrait he hides from prying eyes.

Aguirre-Sacasa told TheWrap, “Dorian Gray is one of my favorite characters from Gothic literature. And you know, his is one of the most famous deals with the Devil. And we thought, ‘What if Dorian Gray is a warlock?’ and then it kind of happened from there.”

“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale” will launch Dec. 14 on Netflix.

On Wednesday, Netflix tweeted a two-minute video featuring everyone’s favorite “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” bad boy, Gavin Leatherwood, titled “Basting a Turkey With Gavin Leatherwood.” And, yes, as the label indicates, Leatherwood does spend the better part of the clip just basting a turkey. But it’s the way he does it that will heat up your kitchen.

“Hey darling, I heard you were thirsty,” Leatherwood says to the camera while rocking a white T-shirt and apron in a sunny kitchen. Then he gets to work, basting that turkey, mashing potatoes, popping cranberries in his mouth, and pouring whip cream between his lips.

Pop culture fanatics can add one more pairing to the list of greatest TV couples of all time, thanks to “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.” And, no, we’re not talking about Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) and Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch).

Yeah, those two are cute and all, but if you’ve watched through the Season 1 finale, then you know the real dynamic duo is Harvey and Nicholas Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood) — the male witch vying for our heroine’s affections.

And Lynch told TheWrap he and Leatherwood were actually waiting for the moment when you’d all realize just how adorable they are together.

“You know what’s so funny? Just today I just texted Gavin, who plays Nick, and was like, ‘Dude they’re shipping us already,’” Lynch says in the interview above.

Lynch and Leatherwood didn’t get a ton of time together on screen during the first 10 episodes of the Netflix series, but the finale saw the witch boy and the mortal teen have to work together to stay safe, while Miss Spellman was signing the Dark Lord’s book and embracing her wicked side. And those handful of scenes were some of Lynch’s favorites to shoot.

“One, I wanna say that I love Gavin Leatherwood as a human being. We just got on so great, the whole cast,” Lynch says. “But I feel like we have a really good relationship, and that was one of the most fun days I’ve had on set. ‘Cause we shot all those scenes in one day. So basically just me and Gavin hanging out all day.”

The close of “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”s first season finds Sabrina single, after telling Harvey she thinks its for his own good if he stays away from her magic world. And the last shot we see is of the witch strolling up to Nick in the Academy of Unseen Arts, with Prudence and the other Weird Sisters. So what does that mean for Harvey and Sabrina in Season 2?

Sabrina Spellman will return to Netflix sooner than you think — and she’s bringing a little holiday cheer wither. Kiernan Shipka and the rest of the cast of the streamer’s haunting new take on the half-teen, half-witch will be back for a holiday episode, “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale,” set to drop Friday, Dec. 14.

Here’s the special installment’s official logline: In the upcoming episode, the Church of Night, like all covens, celebrates the Winter Solstice –the longest night of the year–when families gather around the Yule Fire to sing pagan carols and tell ghost stories. But the holidays are also a time for guests and visitors–both welcome and unwelcome– you never know what might come down the chimney…

Shipka, Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis, Ross Lynch, Michelle Gomez, Chance Perdomo, Jaz Sinclair, Tati Gabrielle, Adeline Rudolph, Abigail Cowen, and Lachlan Watson will all return in the holiday episode.

“Sabrina” creator and showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who also serves as chief creative officer of Archie Comics, will executive produce the special episode, alongside “Riverdale” collaborators Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater and Lee Toland Krieger. The project hails from Warner Bros. Television-based Berlanti Productions, the studio behind the series.

“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”s first season, consisting of 10 episodes, dropped on Netflix last month. This special holiday installment is a surprise treat for fans, as the show’s second season — which was included with the streamer’s initial series order — does not yet have a launch date.

Satanic Temple Sues Netflix, Warner Bros for $50 Million Over ‘Sabrina’s’ Use of Baphomet Statue

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

The Satanic Temple is suing Netflix and studio Warner Bros. over the “misappropriated” use of the statue of Baphomet featured on the streamer’s new series “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” starring Kiernan Shipka as the titular half mortal, half witch teenager.

TST is claiming copyright infringement, trademark violation and injury to business reputation, asking for a total of at least $50 million in damages, according to court documents filed in New York on Thursday, obtained by TheWrap.

“Defendants misappropriated the TST Baphomet Children in ways implying that the monument stands for evil. Among other morally repugnant actions, the Sabrina Series’ evil antagonists engage in cannibalism and forced-worship of a patriarchal deity,” the lawsuit states.

TST claims the Baphomet statue is featured in four of the show’s 10 Season 1 episodes, and a “key element” in the finale. In the filing, TST says they notified the streamer and studio of their copyright violation claim last month when the show launched on Netflix, but got no response.

The statue appears on the Netflix series while Sabrina attends the Academy of Unseen Arts, a magical school that teaches the way of the Dark Lord aka the show’s version of Satan.

Per the lawsuit, “TST seeks, among other things, a permanent injunction barring Defendants from reproducing and distributing the Sabrina Series utilizing images of the TST Baphomet with Children, and TST submits that absent the relief requested herein, Defendants will continue to willfully infringe TST’s copyright, trademark and common law rights.”

The filing comes one week after Satanic Temple co-founder Lucien Greaves took to Twitter to threaten “legal action” against Netflix for “appropriating our copyrighted monument design to promote their asinine Satanic Panic fiction.”

Greaves said in a statement to TheWrap last Tuesday that “we’ve sent [Netflix] a letter from our lawyers informing them of the copyright violation, asking them to take our imagery out of their show.”

In an interview with SFGate published last week, Greaves said, “It’s deeply problematic to us. [But] even if that wasn’t the case we’d be obligated to make a copyright claim because that’s how copyright works.”

Warner Bros declined TheWrap’s request for comment on the pending litigation, and Netflix forwarded our request to a Warner Bros representative.

Satanic Temple Threatens ‘Legal Action’ Against ‘Sabrina’ for ‘Appropriating’ Baphomet Statue Design

Sabrina Spellman spent the better part of the first season of “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” in trouble with the fictional Dark Lord — and now she’s getting heat from the real-life Satanic Temple.

Netflix’s TV adaptation of the Archie Comics character has caught the eye of the Temple’s co-founder, Lucien Greaves, for “appropriating” his organization’s copyrighted design of the monument to Baphomet. He is now threatening to take “legal action” against the streamer.

The statue is shown in multiple scenes while the teen witch (played by Kiernan Shipka) attends the Academy of Unseen Arts, a magical school that teaches the way of the Dark Lord aka the show’s version of Satan.

“Yes, we are taking legal action regarding #TheChillingAdventuresofSabrina appropriating our copyrighted monument design to promote their asinine Satanic Panic fiction,” Greaves tweeted Sunday.

Greaves said in a statement to TheWrap on Tuesday that “we’ve sent [Netflix] a letter from our lawyers informing them of the copyright violation, asking them to take our imagery out of their show.”

In an interview with SFGate published on Monday, Greaves said, “It’s deeply problematic to us. (But) even if that wasn’t the case we’d be obligated to make a copyright claim because that’s how copyright works.” Greaves also noted that if the group didn’t make the copyright claim now, it would have a weakened ability to do so in the future. In this instance, he said, “we would have had to send some message.”

“I want them to take it out,” he added. “It looks like it’s a CGI facsimile to begin with. I don’t know how much work that takes, but I simply refuse to have our monument used in this way in perpetuity. I don’t want our monument to be associated with this.”

Netflix did not immediately respond to TheWrap‘s request for comment.

I’m not sure why this was tweeted at me, but the writer/director for Sabrina apparently feels that the “struggle for justice” allows for their show to appropriate our intellectual property. https://t.co/4wNmdjlAaX

I’m amazed that anybody is confused as to why we would seek legal remedy over Sabrina using our monument. Would they be as understanding of a fictional show that used a real mosque as the HQ of a terrorist cell? A fictional Blood Libel tale implicating real world Jews?

Even though “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” is on Netflix and “Riverdale” is on network TV, there are now hints that a crossover is not entirely off the table.

On last week’s “Riverdale” episode, Ben Button (played by Moses Thiessen) was seemingly killed off when he awoke from a coma only to throw himself out of his hospital window. But this weekend, on the seventh episode of “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” “Riverdale” fans were shocked to see Ben delivering a pizza to Miss Wardell.

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who is the executive producer on both shows, was asked by “Entertainment Tonight” about the surprising appearance. And although Aguirre-Sacasa would not confirm whether or not Ben survived his deadly window jump, he did note that the two shows are now connected.

“It suggests a very deep, deep mythology where time and space bends. I love that kid. I’m sad that he keeps turning up and horrible things keep happening to him,” he told “ET.” “It seemed like it was pretty final, but yet there he is in Greendale. But in Greendale, everyone pops up — the dead don’t stay dead long in Greendale.”

Catch “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” on Netflix now, and watch “Riverdale” Wednesdays at 8 on The CW.

‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’: 7 ‘The Exorcist’ References in That Head-Spinning Tribute Episode

‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’: 7 ‘The Exorcist’ References in That Head-Spinning Tribute Episode

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

(Warning: This post contains spoilers for Episode 106 of “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.”)

When Netflix compared “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” to “The Exorcist” in the reboot’s logline, they were not messing around.

“An Exorcism in Greendale” — Episode 6 of the new take on the Archie Comics teen witch — is actually a tribute to the 1973 horror flick, with the 16-year-old Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) performing an (unauthorized) exorcism of her own to free a man’s soul.

Of course, if you’ve been eating up every piece of news about this show since before its Friday launch, then you already knew that, as creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa teased the “homage” episode in an interview with Entertainment Weekly in August.

But now that it’s arrived, TheWrap can finally call out all the references to one of the showrunner’s “favorite movies” that pop up in the sixth installment of Season 1.

And, yeah, there are enough to make your head spin.

1. No one is on board with this exorcism

When Sabrina tries to get the ball rolling on an exorcism to free her friend Susie’s uncle Jesse, she doesn’t really have any advocates. That’s not unlike actress Chris MacNeil’s (played by Ellen Burstyn) problem in “The Exorcist,” in which her 12-year-old daughter Regan is possessed by a demon, and she can’t seem to get anyone to agree to an exorcism until the very end. But because of how rarely the practice is actually invoked within the Catholic church, it’s not surprising that Father Merrin and Father Karras don’t wanna mess around unless it’s a last resort — or that Sabrina’s aunts and Father Blackwood don’t want a teen witch playing with that “false” church’s magic.

Also Read: ‘Sabrina’: Biggest Differences Between Netflix Series’ Premiere and Comics Issue #1

2. The demon’s look — and name

A rotting, contorted face on a bed-ridden demon with a foaming mouth? Yeah, Regan and Jesse definitely have that in common. Though the malevolence inside Regan is never named on screen in “The Exorcist,” it is canonically known as Pazuzu. The evil being in “Sabrina” is known as Maereci at first — until we find out that was a little trickier (“Ice cream” spelled backward. Sigh) — and then Apophis. Both Pazuzu and Apophis are references to actual demons in mythology.

3. Potty-mouth

Well, Jesse Putnam certainly gave Linda Blair a run for her money in expletive-laced insults. Though, you know, no F-bombs. So young Regan still wins.

4. Projectile vomiting and head spinning

Literally, how could you do a “The Exorcist” tribute without making sure that someone pukes across the room and heads roll? Right, you couldn’t. Only on “Sabrina,” it’s more a continuous jerking of the demon’s head and unnatural movements rather than a full 360 turn. But we’ll allow it.

5. Digging for ancient artifacts

Sabrina’s takes a little trip down into the mines — the place where Jesse used to work and supposedly saw something that made him go mad — with Harvey. There she finds a broken tablet that gives her a clue to the demon’s name (and thus how to defeat him). That moment is a clear shoutout to the beginning of “The Exorcist,” as in the opening scene for the horror flick, Father Merrin is on an archeological dig in Iraq and finds an amulet resembling Pazuzu, which sets the whole plot in motion.

6. That slow walk 

One of the most iconic moments from “The Exorcist” is the scene in which the priests roll up to the house late at night, with a bright white light shining from Regan’s bedroom. “Sabrina” doesn’t miss a bit, using a similar shot of Sabrina and her Aunt Hilda and Miss Wardwell (aka Madam Satan) walking toward the Putnams’ house to free Uncle Jesse. (See it pictured above.)

7. The actual exorcism

Apophis does his worst to mock Sabrina and her team while they try to expel the demon from Susie’s uncle’s body. But she hangs tough, letting the power of the witches who came before her cleanse the man’s soul. Oh, and Aunt Zelda comes in at the last minute to assist, possibly a nod to Father Karras’ return at the end of “The Exorcist” and the reason Regan is ultimately saved.

Now the biggest difference between Sabrina’s exorcism and Father Merrin and Father Karras’ act (other than the fact the teen witch’s was not a Catholic exorcism) is that Regan lived and Jesse died — but that’s only because Madam Satan came to kill the cleansed uncle after Sabrina saved him. (Still unclear on exactly why she did that, by the way.)

Oh, and Sabrina survived enacting the exorcism. Merrin and Karras? Not so much. RIP, padres.

“The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” Season 1 is now streaming on Netflix.

‘Sabrina’: Biggest Differences Between Netflix Series’ Premiere and Comics Issue #1

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

The “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” is finally here — but how does the Greendale of the comic books stack up against Netflix’s on-screen version?

The show remains pretty truthful to the comics — which makes sense, considering that the writer of the “Sabrina” graphic novels, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, is also the series’ showrunner — but there are a few notable differences between the Netflix series’ first episode and the first issue of the comics.

See below for the biggest differences.

Netflix

Madam Satan

In the first episode of “CAOS,” Miss Wardell, Sabrina’s favorite teacher, finds what appears to be a young girl on the side of the road, and graciously picks her up and takes her home. We find out that this definitely isn’t an innocent runaway, but a servant of the dark lord. She kills Miss Wardell and takes over her body, in order to get closer to Sabrina.

In the comic version, however, things are even darker.

Two cheerleaders from Riverdale (yes, that Riverdale!) are trying to summon Succubus, the demoness of desire, to help them settle a blood rivalry. Instead, they accidentally conjure up a spirit from the capital of hell. She eats a pregnant doe’s unborn calf, and then is blessed by the blood moon and then spends a year at the bottom of a river.

It’s not until the next issue when we find out that this woman — well, she used to be a woman — was actually Sabrina’s dad’s lover when he met her mortal mom. She was so upset that Edward (who, btw, now lives in a tree) was leaving her, she threw herself into the lion’s cage at the zoo and let herself be ripped apart and eaten by the lions.

She does eventually drag herself out of the river, and long story short, befriends Miss Wardell only to take over her body — similar to the show, though it takes a couple more issues to get there.

“I love you”

In the first episode, Harvey declares his love for Sabrina a few days before her sixteenth birthday, since they won’t be able to celebrate together (you know, cause of her whole Dark Baptism thing).

In the comics, however, Sabrina and Harvey don’t start out together. During Sabrina’s first day at Greendale High, she sees Harvey for the first time and is smitten right away. She’s determined to get the football player to like her, too, and so she and Ambrose conduct a honey jar spell to make him “sweeten” on her. It works, and they make plans to go to the movies.

And while Ambrose doesn’t help her with a charm to woo Harvey in the first episode, he does help her with a spell to frighten her school principle out of commission for a few days.

Sabrina’s cousin Ambrose

In the comics, Ambrose is a teenage Warlock who comes to live with the Spellman sisters and Sabrina after removing a fellow student’s hands at boarding school in England. In the show, Ambrose has been living with them for 75 years, under house arrest. He also has twin snake familiars in the comics, but the serpents are absent from the show.

Salem

In the Season 1 premiere, Sabrina spends a good chunk of the episode on the hunt for her Familiar. But in the first issue of the comics, she’s given her Familiar by her Aunts Zelda and Hilda when she’s still a young girl. In the comic books, Salem speaks and has a lot of the snark that viewers loved from Nick Bakay’s Salem in “Sabrina the Teenage Witch.” But in “Chilling,” Sabrina’s familiar only speaks once, when still in goblin form, and only says her name. The comic book Salem was turned into a cat as punishment for trying to enact the Book of Revelation.

“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” is now streaming on Netflix.

Netflix’s “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” was released at midnight — the witching hour, if you’re into that sort of thing — which means that fans have finally been exposed to the adorable relationship between Kiernan Shipka’s teen witch and her high school sweetheart, Harvey Kinkle (played by Ross Lynch.)

Of course you are about to fall madly in love with their young romance. And you’re in good company, as Shipka and Lynch say they are gaga for Harvey and Sabrina as well.

“Their relationship is one of my favorite aspects of the show, because it’s so sweet, so beautiful and so pure,” Shipka told Us Weekly in an interview published Thursday. “Their love for each other is really honest. It’s innocent, and it’s just quite beautiful. They really, really adore each other.”

“They’re so in love, it’s electric,” Lynch said, adding that Harvey and Sabrina’s teen status makes the “innocence” of their first love “very apparent.” “I really like how it comes across onscreen. Filming those scenes are so fun.”

But hold on to your broomsticks, Sabrina-Harvey shippers, because it’s rough skies ahead for your new favorite couple.

“The one thing that kind of kills Sabrina is that she is hiding part of herself from Harvey,” Shipka said. “It comes from a place of good, always trying to protect him and trying to protect herself. But at the same time, she feels that she is hiding a big part of herself from him so we see that unravel throughout the season.”

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

If you’re a little freaked out by what happens in Netflix’s new horror series “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” you’re not alone. Star Tati Gabrielle, who plays Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka)’s nemesis Prudence, says that some of those bewitching scenes were “genuinely terrifying” to shoot.

Gabrielle, although she plays a witch on “Sabrina,” is self-described as being “horrible when it comes to horror things.” Just how horrible? “Like, ‘Jurassic Park’s not even a horror film and I couldn’t even watch it until I was 16 just because I was so terrified,” she told TheWrap ahead of the show’s release on Netflix. 

Also Read: ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ Star Kiernan Shipka Teases Netflix’s ‘Next Level Dark’ Reboot (Video)

Of all the crazy scenes in “Sabrina” (we won’t go into much detail to avoid spoilers), Gabrielle said the craziest to film was a ritual scene with her fellow Weird Sister, Agatha (Adeline Rudolph). “It gave me literal chills,” “The 100” alum said, adding that “a lot of the spells and things that we do are actually real spells that they’ve pulled from, like, the Wiccan faith.”

It was kind of, like, wild to, yeah, be in like a literal ritual with real symbols everywhere and real spells happening,” she said. 

Luckily, however, using real-life spells didn’t cause any real-life problems for the cast and crew.

Also Read: ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ Reveals a Whole New Version of Salem (Video)

We’ve never had like ‘Exorcist’-type incidents or like weird things happening around the set, like thank God,” Gabrielle continued, though she did say that walking through the Spellman house by herself creeped her out. “If I have to cross through one [set] to get to another, and I’m by myself, I will literally, like, run, terrified, like through the set and to the next one.”

Thankfully, Gabrielle worked out a good palette cleanser for those super-scary scenes: “Some of those nights, I would go home and watch ‘Family Guy’ for a bit,” she said. “And just kind of decompress, get back on the lighter side of life. [I’d tell myself] ‘It’s not real, it’s not real, you’re gonna be fine!’” 

So who was the bravest on the spooky set? Fittingly, the series’ titular star.

Also Read: ‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch’ Cast Offers Words of Encouragement to New Coven: ‘Best Witches!’

Well Kiernan [Shipka] is like, the hardest person to scare,” Gabrielle said. Case in point: In Season 1’s opening scene, Sabrina and Harvey (Ross Lynch) are watching an old horror movie, and Sabrina is laughing and eating popcorn while everyone around her is visibly scared. “That is literally Kiernan.”
