Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, showrunner on upcoming Netflix series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina shared a first look image of Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) and Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch). Last year, Archie Comics found success in bringing its flagship series to television with the debut of Riverdale on The CW. In the show’s first season, it earned a dedicated fan base and largely positive reviews from critics. So, Archie Comics struck a deal with Warner Bros. Television that would allow them to bring even more of their comic book properties to the small screen.
Not long after, news broke that a new take on Sabrina the Teenage Witch would be adapted to TV, specifically adapting The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comic that was published under the Archie Horror imprint. Although Sabrina was originally developed for The CW, the project moved to Netflix with a two-season order and promises of the show debuting later in 2018. Since then, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has rounded out its core cast and started filming, but fans had yet to see what the actors look like in costume – until now.
Earlier today, Just Jared published a slew of set photos featuring Shipka and Lynch in costume as Sabrina and Harvey, respectively. As a result of the first look at the characters leaking prior to an official image, Aguirre-Sacasa posted one of the photos on Twitter, hyping up fans about the adorable couple. Take a look at Aguirre-Sacasa’s tweet below:
