After shifting from The CW to Netflix, the network has found its lead for its adaptation of Archie's The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina in Kiernan Shipka. She will portray Sabrina Spellman, an empowered young woman, half-human, half-witch, who is just beginning her dark education as a sorceress, even as she tries to maintain a normal life as a sophomore at Baxter High.

The untitled Sabrina project landed a 20-episode, two-season deal at Netflix, with Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Berlanti Productions, and Warner Bros. TV, the teams behind The CW's Riverdale. As with Riverdale, the project will be a darker adaptation of its source material.

Three character descriptions for the show also leaked for supporting characters. The first is for Sabrina's love interest Harvey Kinkle.

Male, Legal 18 or 18+ to play high school, All Ethnicities. Sabrina's boyfriend, the Prince Charming of this dark fairy tale. Harvey is a young man in a small town starting to figure out his place in the larger world. He is politically minded, idiosyncratic, attractive, charismatic, and fun. Handsome and romantic, Harvey's also smart, woke, and compassionate. In the present-day, he is part of Greendale's counter-culture youth. He has no idea that he is descendant from a long line of witchhunters...ASP SERIES REGULAR

The second is for the human best friend Rosalind.

Female, legal 18 or 18+ to play 16, African American. Rosalind is Sabrina's human best friend. Brash, empowered, and outspoken like her Black Panther parents, Rosalind is keeping a secret from Sabrina and the rest of her classmates—that she is not-so-slowly losing her eyesight, a fact that will put her immortal soul in jeopardy...10/13 SERIES REGULAR

The third is for Mary Wardwell, a teacher at Sabrina's school and potential big bad.

Female, 30s, Diverse. A mousy teacher at Baxter High, Ms. Wardwell is a smart, quirky mentor to Sabrina. However, her persona quickly gets taken over by Madam Satan at the start of the pilot, and she becomes a sultry, cunning manipulator. Essentially the Devil's Handmaiden, Wardwell's "lessons" are designed to corrupt Sabrina per the Devil's agenda...ASP SERIES REGULAR
