When we used to think of Archie and the Gang, we thought of the dorky, redheaded boy next door. We thought of the ultimate girl next door Betty Cooper, the fashionable, spoiled Veronica Lodge, and the always hungry Jughead Jones. We thought of a fun group of friends in a harmless town. That’s what we used to think. But Riverdale changed that.
Everyone was surprised, and a little confused, when it was announced that the Archie comics were being adapted into a show. But it only takes the first two minutes of the pilot episode to tell you that this is something very different from the comics. Riverdale is dark. This town has faced a slew of horrors, from the death of a teenager to a serial killer. Sure, there are still milkshakes and burgers, but there are also drugs and gangs. And every episode is a little bit darker than the last. But from the looks of it, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is going to be even darker.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a Riverdale spin-off all about, you guessed it, Sabrina the teenage witch. And yep, she’s getting a dark twist. We aren’t talking about kid-friendly spells anymore. We’re talking the occult. I, for one, am genuinely excited! Not only does the show star Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men) in the title role, and it also features Miranda Otto (Lord of the Rings) and Michelle Gomez (Doctor Who)! I think we just found our new addiction.
