Take a look @ a new casting breakdown revealing lead characters from the upcoming live-action TV series "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina", based on the "Archie" Comics characters, that will move to Netflix from The CW, with a commitment of 20 episodes over two seasons:
The new series will be based on writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's new comic book series, delving into the occult origins of 'Sabrina', as the teen reconciles her dual nature of being half-witch and half-mortal while protecting her family and the world from the forces of evil.
'SABRINA SPELLMAN' (SERIES LEAD): Female, Open ethnicity, legal 18 or 18+ to play 16. Sabrina is an empowered young woman, half-human, half-witch, struggling to reconcile her dual natures. She is just beginning her dark education as a sorceress, even as she tries to maintain some semblance of a normal life as a sophomore at Baxter High. Sabrina is intelligent, compassionate and brave to the point of recklessness.
"She challenges witch-doctrine at every turn. She is fiercely loyal to her family and friends; wickedly funny; and in the middle of a star-crossed romance with her classmate 'Harvey Kinkle'. Sabrina is all that stands between us and the 'Forces of Darkness' that threaten our world.
'HILDA SPELLMAN' (SERIES REGULAR) : Female, late 30s to early 40s, All Ethnicities. Hilda is one of the 'Spellman' sisters who are raising Sabrina, though her nurturing nature belies a more ruthless side. She is a healer, a potion-maker, sweet-as-pie until you cross her or anyone she leaves. Operating the local funeral home, the sisters hide their witchery from the world while teaching Sabrina spells and incantations at home.
'ZELDA SPELLMAN' (SERIES REGULAR): Female, late 30's to early 40's, All Ethnicities. Zelda is the harsher of the Spellman sisters who helped raise Sabrina, though her sternness and tough facade might be hiding a more…mothering soul.
"Unlike Hilda, Zelda claims that she has never known love—her devotion to the 'Dark Lord' is all-consuming—which is why people looking for a love-potion go to Hilda; those looking to make a spite-jar go to Zelda.
'AMBROSE SPELLMAN' (SERIES REGULAR): Male, early 20's, African American or East Indian, British. Ambrose is Sabrina’s cousin and a 'necromancer'. He is witty, puckish and loves being a witch. Trapped in the funeral home due to a binding spell, Ambrose lives in the mortuary's attic and acts as one of Sabrina’s partners in crime…
