In just over a month, Netflix subscribers will soon be diving into the witchy world of Greendale (Riverdale’s neighbor) and the dark forces that reside there. Based on the Archie Comics of the same name, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will follow the iconic teenage witch Sabrina Spellman as she struggles to find her place as both a half-witch and half-mortal. Forced to choose between the two worlds on her sixteenth birthday, Sabrina will embark on a dark journey to stand against the evil forces that threaten her, her family, and the daylight world humans inhabit.
The series just released its first teaser last week and now Netflix wants to get us even more prepared by officially introducing some of the characters from the short clip. So, without further ado let’s meet a few of the good and evil residents of Greendale!
Played by: Kiernan Shipka
[row]Sabrina Spellman is 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.[/row]
Played by: Ross Lynch
[row]Harvey Kinkle is Sabrina’s boyfriend. The prince charming of this dark fairy tale, Harvey is the son of a coal miner, a dreamboat and a dreamer, completely unaware of the dark forces conspiring to keep him and Sabrina apart.[/row]
Played by: Lucy Davis
[row]Hilda Spellman is one of Sabrina’s two witch aunts. More nurturing than Zelda, Hilda’s motherly nature and warm sense of humor belie a wicked, ghoulish streak. She is as adept at brewing spite jars against her family’s enemies as she is at concocting love potions for the students at Baxter High.[/row]
Played by: Miranda Otto
[row]Zelda Spellman is Sabrina’s sterner witch aunt. Proud and devout, Zelda believes there is no greater honor than serving the Dark Lord as a member of the Church of Night. She is the family’s disciplinarian, fiercely protective of Sabrina, and very much Cain to Hilda’s Abel.[/row]
Played by: Chance Perdomo
[row]Ambrose is Sabrina’s warlock cousin from England. Placed under house arrest by the Witches Council, Ambrose is forbidden from leaving the funeral home where he lives with the Spellman woman. Witty, puckish, and pan-sexual, he is one of Sabrina’s partners in crime, always up for mischief.[/row]
Played by: Richard Coyle
[row]Father Blackwood is High Priest of the Church of Night and Dean of the Academy of the Unseen Arts. Ruthless and ambitious, Blackwood hides a terrifying dark agenda that will put him in direct conflict with Sabrina and other members of the cove.[/row]
The Weird Sisters
Played by: Adeline Rudolph, Tati Gabrielle, and Abigail Cowen
[row]Agatha (Rudolph), Prudence (Gabrielle), and Dorcas (Cowen) are the three Weird Sisters—a trio of powerful, uncanny teenage witches at the Academy of Unseen Arts who look down their noses at Sabrina for being half-mortal.[/row]
Rosalind Walker and Susie Putnam
Played by: Jaz Sinclair and Lachlan Watson
[row]Rosalind, the brash, empowered and outspoken daughter of Greendale’s minister and Sabrina’s best friend at Baxter High. Susie Putnam is one of Sabrina’s friends at Baxter High and a founding member of the school’s newly formed WICCA club. Brave and optimistic despite being bullied at school, Susie lives on a farm at the outskirts of town and deals with a terrifying supernatural threat at home.[/row]
Mary Wardwell / Madam Satan
Played by: Michelle Gomez
[row]Mrs. Wardwall is Sabrina’s favorite teacher and mentor at Baxter High. When she is possessed by the Devil’s handmaiden, Madam Satan, Ms. Wardwell turns into a sultry, cunning manipulator, always trying to lure Sabrina down the Path of Night.[/row]
Played by: Gavin Leatherwood
[row]Nicholas Scratch is a young, handsome warlock at the Academy of Unseen Arts who befriends new student Sabrina Spellman. An acolyte of Sabrina’s father’s teachings, Nicholas is drawn to Sabrina, as well, and there are immediate sparks between them.[/row]
Season 1 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will be dropping on Netflix on October 26th!

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
