Chilling Adventures of Sabrina excites viewers


Well, to start it off I’d like to clarify that the new Netflix original, “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” is the complete opposite of previous shows that have been made based on “Sabrina the Teenage Witch.” The show comes from the same creators of the very popular show, “Riverdale.” Of course, being the lame teenager that I am, I’ve seen all available seasons of “Riverdale” that are currently on Netflix, as well as part one of “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.” I have to say that I enjoy “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” a lot more than I ever did “Riverdale.”

The very adorable Kiernan Shipka plays Sabrina Spellman, with a cute blonde bob and signature red clothing. Then, there’s Ross Lynch, who plays her sweet boyfriend Harvey, that you can’t help but love. Each character has a different personality that you learn to love. Sabrina’s cousin, Ambrose, played by Chance Perdomo, is one of my favorites. There are some strange conditions he appears to be living under, but once it all got sorted out there was nothing but love for him. That’s one of my favorite things about the show: there was always some sort of question I needed to find the answer to, and it remains that way for the whole season of the show.

Although I enjoy the storyline, there are a couple of things that were disappointing. Some of the effects were a bit too simple, and there could be some inappropriate parts for any younger audiences that were watching. Despite these small factors, I still appreciate it for being so different, as well as not taking the same disappointing turns as “Riverdale” did.

On December 14, “A Midwinter’s Tale” was released as a holiday special. My expectations were that it would be a little side story that wasn’t relevant to what happened to the first season, but it turns out that it was a follow up to the latest events of the show. I was really excited to get to see a bit of an update on the characters, as well as learning a bit more about the witches culture.

After the holiday special, there’ll be a bit longer of a wait for the new season. On April 5, 10 brand new episodes will be dropped where they’ll be introducing new characters and hopefully answering some of the questions that they left for us to ponder. They’ve also announced that the show has been renewed for parts three and four, which is surprising because only one season has been released before. Nevertheless, I’m looking forward to gaining more knowledge about their lives; as the Spellmans always say, praise Satan.
