Now I know you. You’re saying “Who?” and “What?” and “Why should I care?” Well, I’ll tell you. It’s Ross Lynch, the towheaded star of Austin & Ally who wowed in Teen Beach Movie then REALLY blew us all away last year when he played the young Jeffrey Dahmer in My Friend Dahmer. He’s just one of my absolute favorites and he should be on your radar as well.
And, of course, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is more than just a reboot of the old Melissa Joan Hart series. It’s based on a comic series that is really, genuinely spooky. I highly advise you to check it out. (And while you’re at it, check out the decidedly NOT kid-friend Archie: Afterlife series). And this new TV version will be done by the same people who do Riverdale, and we all know THAT’S the best show on TV. Bar none. No arguing.
The show is a one-hour drama based on the Archie Comics graphic novel The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and comes from executive producers Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Riverdale) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow). The show will tell the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story as the half-witch, half-mortal fights the evil forces that threaten the world.
So the news that Ross Lynch is playing Sabrina’s love interest Harvey Krinkle is actually something that should be of massive interest to EVERYONE.
Also in the cast? Bronson Pinchot (!!!!), and Mad Men‘s little Kieran Shipka all grown up AS SABRINA!!!! This is gong to be faaaaabulous, I just know it.
