News Kiernan Shipka Joins Netflix Series ‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch’ as Lead Published 1 year ago on January 7, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Netflix just announced that our new Sabrina Spellman has been cast, who is none other than Kiernan Shipka (The Blackcoat’s Daughter). As we found out last month, Sabrina the Teenage Witch will run for 2 seasons. Here’s what Executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa had to say about casting Sabrina: “We’re all such huge fans of Kiernan’s work that when we started talking about who this new incarnation of Sabrina could be, her name was on everyone’s wish list. This is a darker, more macabre version of Sabrina, and we’re incredibly excited for people to see Kiernan make this iconic character her own.” Shipka is best known for playing Sally Draper on the AMC series “Mad Men.” She was most recently seen in FX’s “Feud.” BREAKING NEWS: @netflix has cast @kiernanshipka as Sabrina Spellman in the upcoming TV series based on THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA comics!

Tonally in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, this adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling 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.” Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is writing the series and Lee Toland Krieger is directing. Aguirre-Sacasa, Krieger, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater will executive produce. Stay tuned to Dark Universe for more on this as it happens!
