Netflix has decided to title its new series, which features actress Kiernan Shipka in the leading role, as ‘’Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’’.
Something wicked is coming from Netflix in the coming weeks and months, and now that ‘’something’’ has a name which will surely pique the interest of the comic book fans.
Previously named as ‘’Sabrina the Teenage Witch’’ series, Netflix has decided to title the horror drama series as ‘’Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’’, after the graphic novel of Archie Comics on which the series is based.
The news was announced in an uncharacteristic fashion on Wednesday as it wasn’t the Netflix’s official account which made the announcement. Instead, it was the series creator Roberto Aguirre Sacasa who made the announcement on his Twitter account.

Starring Man Men alum Kiernan Shipka, ‘’Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’’ introduces the audience to half-with half-mortal Sabrina who stands against evil forces that not only threaten her but also her family as well as the daylight.
It was in September 2017 that Netflix broke the news that it will be airing ‘’Sabrina the Teenage Witch’’. While the title of the show has only recently been confirmed, it was known right from the time of the announcement that the series will be based on Archie Comics.
For, before launching ‘’Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’’, Netflix has enjoyed widespread success with another story from Archie Comics; Riverdale. Hence Netflix knew that if it went back to borrow another story from Archie Comics, there’s already a market for such dramas.

In addition to Kiernan Shipka who will play the role of Sabrina, Ross Lynch is also selected for the show. He will play the role of Sabrina’s caring boyfriend Harvey Kinkle. Michelle Gomez from ‘’Doctor Who’’ and ‘’Green Wing’’ will be playing the role of the villain.
