Magic, the Supernatural, Witches, Warlocks, Mystery and Horror – expect all of this and more..
With Halloween on the way as the show launched on 26th October, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina couldn’t have been more perfectly timed. When it was announced that Netflix would bring out this new series, I was so excited. Watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a young girl, I was ready for the Netflix re-boot.
One thing I noticed about watching Sabrina, was that her outfits were complete goals! I love the way she has been styled and it fits perfectly for her role. Everything she wears gives me inspiration… the cute jumpers layered with dresses, more cute jumpers, and all worn with a gold necklace of some sort. I wonder if this is an important necklace? And to top it all off, that hairstyle makes me want to get my hair cut – even though I know that I will probably end up looking no way near as cool. Even though this is moving away from the point of this post, here’s a link to a beautiful dress – which, paired with a cute jumper, has complete Sabrina vibes.
The series begins by introducing us to Sabrina Spellman and her hometown of Greendale, and yes, the series also makes many references to Riverdale! After her parents died, for reasons we are not made completely sure of, Sabrina was taken in by her two aunties Hilda and Zelda. They brought her up to be the young half-witch that she is, while having to deal with guiding Sabrina down the right path.
We are also introduced to the main dilemma that Sabrina has: on the night of her Dark Baptism, she must choose between the mortal world with Harvey and her friends, or the witch world. Throughout each episode, Sabrina is faced with difficult challenges and discovers horrific truths and traditions of the church of night (the church for all witches). As a young sixteen year old, she does a very good job! Watching the series will definitely make you want to become a witch yourself, and you’ll be forever wishing that you secretly were!
The Academy that Sabrina has to attend is also pretty cool, but we do not see much happening here in terms of her classes – we do however, see her perform countless amounts of spells and dark magic outside of the Academy. The one thing that we have yet to see pan out is her so-called friendship with her teacher – who is apparently helping to protect Sabrina. Who knows what will happen in series two, but I do know that I am definitely excited for it, and I hope that it will be coming out very soon.
Many people have been disappointed by the new series, as it is completely different to Sabrina the Teenage Witch. However, I LOVE it! I love how dark it is – and not to mention how feminist the series is. Not only this, but the series has been based upon the Archie Comics, meaning that it is supposed to be dark and a little bit more edgy. Filled with fierce, badass women, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a must watch.
I will be writing more on the series soon! So keep updated by following my twitter @_favethingsblog – also, let me know what you think about The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina in the comments below! Thanks for reading xo
