Today, Netflix released two new images from their upcoming teen series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. A spin-off of the popular Riverdale series over on CW, the show will focus on Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) and her descent into the occult. The images are from the first two episodes of the show and we can get a small hint as to what’s to come.
In the first image, we see Sabrina in the woods with a bell and a large stick. Possibly practicing magic, making a protection circle perchance? It doesn’t tell us too much. The second image is the most intriguing. We see Sabrina in the woods surrounded by a coven. She’s in a slip, kneeling before Father Blackwood (Richard Coyle). We previously learned that he’s the High Priest of the Church of Night and the main villain of the show. So perhaps Sabrina, her aunts Zelda (Miranda Otto) and Hilda (Lucy Davis) are members of the Church of Night when Blackwood’s “terrifying dark agenda” puts him at odds with them. In the photo it appears that this is her initiation into the coven.
The images reveal that at least in the first part of the season, a lot of magic will happen in the woods. And if you look closely in the initiation picture, a woman is holding a chicken – possibly about to be sacrificed. And further back there’s a shirtless man with blood covering his chest with a bunny mask on. What’s up with that?! Given it’s home at Netflix, they’ll be able to dive into the more horror aspects based on the revival comic by executive producer of the show and writer of the comic Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Just how bloody and horrifying will it get? Well given what American Horror Story can do with their shows, we’re sure that they’ll be able to do that and more.
