The new adaptation of “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” is currently on Netflix and boast 10 episode which are around one hour each. The Netflix adaptation of Sabrina conveys a darker more satanic view of the teenage witch. The show presents many satanic images which helps this adaptation distinguish from the comics and the old show. This is the second show to be revamped from a comic, first was the CW’s “Riverdale”.

The show takes place in Greendale, which for those “Riverdale” fans is the magical creepy neighboring town that Archie and Jughead visited. “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” follows the journey of Sabrina, portrayed by Kiernan Shipka, while she is attending regular high school with her four mortal friends, but then Sabrina’s full witch aunts try and manipulate her into signing her name in blood in the “Dark Lord’s” book on her 16th birthday, which is on Halloween.

Her signing means she is giving her soul to the dark lord and she is completely giving up her impish mortal ways and her boyfriend Harvey, who is played by Ross Lynch.  The night of the her dark baptism, Sabrina gets second thoughts on if she is ready to give up her half mortal ways because she lived her whole life as a mortal, but she also doesn’t want to disappoint her aunts who raised  her her whole life after her parents death.

The show overall convinces the audience to continue to watch and desire more and more of Sabrina’s adventures, as based on previous reviews and audience scores for the show.

“The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” succeeds all expectations and the next season and “Winter Solstice” episode, expected to be released on Dec. 10, cannot come fast enough.
