If you like the show Riverdale, with its dark themes, then you will enjoy The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. This show has even darker themes and characters. While it isn’t the same tone as Sabrina the Teenage Witch you may have grown up watching in the late 90’s, it centers on the same character. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is based off of the Archie Comics character Sabrina the Teenage Witch. The show takes place in the town of Greendale and follows Sabrina who is half-human and half-witch.
Sabrina is forced to choose between her human life and her witch life. She cannot have both. She attends high school by day, but also leads a double life learning about her potential dark baptism. The storyline picks up with this event looming over Sabrina, as she must decide the fate of her life on her sixteenth birthday on Halloween, which adds to the creepy dark themes of the show. If Sabrina chooses her human life, she will be hated by the other witches and warlocks, but if she chooses a witch life, she would then have to sign away her freedom to the dark lord: the devil.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will keep you on the edge of your seat. The plot twists and turns, and you never know what will happen next. This is an addicting show that you could possibly binge in just a day or two, with the first season including ten episodes. Based on internet speculation, this show has been contracted for season two which is expected to air sometime next year. But before season two even premiers, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will be airing a Christmas episode on Dec. 14.
