She's Not Your Sugary, Scatterbrained Sabrina The Teenage Witch Anymore

June 05, 2014

Remember when we half-jokingly voted Sabrina Spellman for Supreme? We take back the laughs.

Archie Comics is readying a darker, more mature iteration of everyone's favorite adolescent magician in time for Halloween 2014. Titled Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the new series will track her rise to power in the 1960s, as she dodges the forces that seek to check it and the ever ominous threat of being outed. She will do battle with Madame Satan, among many other malevolent characters, and fend off the most potent hexes this side of Greendale. 

Chilling...Sabrina will be set in the 1960s, the era of Nancy Drew and Rosemary's Baby. See what they did there?

Chilling Adventures comes on the heels of Afterlife with Archie, which warps Riverdale and its famous occupants in a zombie apocalypse. The writer of that series, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, is on hand for ChillingDoctor Who's Robert Hack joins him for illustrating duties.

We've all grown up with Sabrina, Salem, and Aunt Hilda and Zelda, as well as Archie and the gang. Now it's time for them to grow up with us...and zap us those well-deserved scares.
