Kiernan Shipka to star as Sabrina in the Riverdale Spinoff on Netflix

Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men, Feud: Bette and Joan) is set to star in the original series Untitled Sabrina Project, based on the Archie Comics graphic novel "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina." The series' executive producer Roberto Aguirre Sacasa took to Twitter to post his excitement.

Sabrina Spellman, the show's heroine has been described: as 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.

Logline: Untitled Sabrina Project imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. Tonally in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, this adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature — half-witch, half-mortal — while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.
Note: The Untitled Sabrina project comes on the heels of the success of Riverdale, which is also based on characters from Archie Comics.
