The first image has been released of Salem, the leading cat from Netflix’s upcoming series based on The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. He looks almost identical to the Salem from the teen series from the ‘90s, but that’s black cats for you!
An empowered young woman, half-human, half-witch, Sabrina is just beginning her dark education as a sorceress, even as she tries to maintain a normal life as a sophomore at Baxter High. Intelligent, compassionate and brave to the point of recklessness, Sabrina is all that stands between us and the forces of darkness that threaten our world.
The series has been greenlit for 2 seasons; each with 10 episodes and has been tonally compared to The Exorcist and Rosemary’s Baby. Riverdale director Lee Aguirre-Sacasa will direct and executive produce the series, with Robert Aguirre-Sacasa serving as a writer and executive producer.
The series stars The Blackcoat’s Daughter’s Kiernan Shipka in the role of Sabrina and Paper Towns’ Jaz Sinclair as her “brash, empowered and outspoken” best friend at High School.
