Aaaaaaaah!!! Are you so stoked for Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina? Are you re-reading the comics over and over? Going out into the night to pet stray cats and whisper “I know you can talk” to each one? Hey, me too! Well, kindred spirit, I’ve got some exciting news for you: we now have a poster for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina! From Executive Producer/Writer/Showrunner/Final Boss of Archie Comics Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s twitter.
So how about that? Isn’t that cool?! Some takeaways: first, the color palette is the most striking combination you’re allowed to use. Experts say that the black/red/white combo is what gave Michael Jordan the edge he needed to completely dominate basketball for so many years. Will Chilling Adventures of Sabrina be the Michael Jordan of TV shows? I sure hope so. Second, and most importantly, take a look at that poster again. Notice anything about the placement of the characters? That’s right, Salem is in the front! Does this mean that the title and much of the promotional material has all been a ruse to get us to believe Sabrina is the star of the show, when really it follows a centuries-old warlock, trapped in the body of a kitty cat and pissed about it? I mean, probably not, but half the fun of waiting for a new TV series is to speculate wildly.
Third, the letter i in Sabrina is dotted with a pentagram. I dot mine with little x’s, but the pentagram looks way spookier.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comes from the same team that made popular teen series Riverdale, including writer/showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, director Lee Toland Krieger, and executive producer Greg Berlanti. Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men, The Blackcoat’s Daughter) stars as Sabrina, with Lucy Davis and Miranda Otto as Sabrina’s aunts Hilda and Zelda.
Either way, I’m officially STUPID STOKED for this show!

There’s a lot to unpack in there, but what else are you gonna do at work? Work? If your boss gets onto you for reading Sabrina hype at work, just tell them that I said it’s alright.
