Review: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Being a 90’s baby, pressing play on the first episode of the new Netflix series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina came with a hefty dose of nostalgia. If you’re of a similar age, I feel it’s hard not to be transported back to your youth by this updated take on the Archie Comics series. Sabrina the Teenage Witch ran from 1996 to 2000, and whether you were a big fan or not, you knew about her because she was everywhere, and Melissa Joan Hart forever became synonymous with the character. If you are a diehard fan of the original and were expecting more of the same here, I’m sorry to tell you, they are like chalk and cheese in terms of tone. But that’s not a bad thing by any stretch! While 90’s Sabrina took the light-hearted and quirky route, this reboot (which sees Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka taking over as the titular Sabrina) is a much darker affair from the outset.
