The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
On October 26, 2018, Netflix released a spin-off of the Archie Comics called The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The director of the hit show on the CW Riverdale directed this show too. The show itself has no time period, they imply it was recent because of the technology, but the characters themselves wear 60s style clothes. The show at some points can be confusing due to the goblins, and witches, and the devil, but the story itself is amazing.
The storyline revolves around Sabrina and portrays a coming of age plot. Sabrina is about to turn 16, and she as a part witch is required to have a dark baptism to become a full witch. Having a hard time choosing between leaving her human friends and boyfriend Harvey in the mortal world, Sabrina needs to decide before October 31, the day of her birthday. She goes to the dark baptism and tells them no at the last second that she does not want to be a full witch she wants to still be a half witch, half mortal. After she decides, this there is a “witch” who is secretly making Sabrina fulfill the dark lord's plans for her, which make her sever her ties with the mortal world.
When everything starts going downhill, Sabrina is required to fight the dark evil trying to wipe out the entire mortal population, and possibly killing the Spellman family. All of the decisions Sabrina makes over the course of the first season leads up to the last final moment that shocks the audience. No spoilers though!
All of the characters have special places in Sabrina”s heart. And some not really. All of the characters on the show contribute to how Sabrina grows in the first season. Other than Sabrina being the most important character, her aunts Zelda and Hilda Spellman are opposites on what they want to happen to Sabrina. Zelda wants her to follow in her family legacy and become a witch. But Hilda just wants Sabrina to be happy, they often butt heads when it comes to Sabrina path.
Rezq Fatoh, 9th grade said, “I thought chilling adventures of Sabrina was a good show because of the ideas that were being put in while creating this show. My favorite character would have to be aunt Hilda, she was my favorite because I could relate to her on being the little sister, and being a kind person.”
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has all of us wanting so much more. The show has a rating of 7.8 on IMDB. And a winter special will be coming on December 14, 2018. But we can expect season two on April 5, 2019. For now, you can watch The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on Netflix streaming now.
