In 2017 it was decided to make a remake of the show which we have known since the distant childhood. Many fans were glad to hear this news. It’s always interesting to look at the famous story from another point of view. The viewers are looking forward to the new episodes of their favorite adventure story about witchcraft, adulating and first love. Especially they’re waiting to see the return of the most popular character of the story – the cat Salem. Rumour has it, that he will be speechless.
The 2nd season of «Chilling Adventures of Sabrina» will come out on October 2019. The director of the series is Lee Toland Krieger who has also worked on the show «Riverdale». It’s interesting that unlike the good old series of the 90-s, the new version will be much darker. This show will have elements of horror, witchcraft and occultism. This won’t be a children’s story but a real scary movie with an exciting plot.
This TV Series about half-human, half-witch Sabrina. She trying to navigate between two worlds: usual teen life and the Church of Night, her family’s legacy.
The main character of the horror series «Chilling Adventures of Sabrina» tells the viewers about the dark side of the world of magic and evil. In the middle of the action there is a teenage girl called Sabrina. She learnt that she isn’t like other people, she is a real witch.
She lives with her aunts and the cat called Salem. The black cat looks like an ordinary pet but actually he is a magician, who was cursed to be an animal for hundred years. He is always near Sabrina and only she knows what he is thinking about.
Sabrina faces a big choice. Maybe this is the most important choice in her life. Who should she be: a mortal human or a powerful witch? The girl tries to combine both sides of her life. But this mixture affects the life of her friends and relatives in a negative way. She is constantly fighting for the lives of the people she loves against the evil powers. Sometimes the dark side of her live threatens the whole planet. But Sabrina believes that she is a good witch and she is relentlessly fighting the powers of evil.
She finds out about her powers while celebrating her 16-th Birthday. She also finds out about the mystery of her birth and her future faith.
The preview of the 2nd season
Sabrina is only a half witch. Her father, a hereditary witcher, fell in love with a mere mortal. And Sabrina – the pledge of their love – has to strike a balance of her powers. But there are such moments when Sabrina feels that one of the sides becomes stronger than the other. The ability to control her powers and desires depends only on herself. To be a human and to be a witch – these are completely opposite concepts.
From the beginning that was planned that there will be 2 seasons which will have 10 episodes each. The shooting of the 1st season was held in the 1st half of the current year and the shooting of the 2nd season will be held in the second half.
The teaser makes it clear that show was filmed in rather gloomy locations. For example, there will be lots of scenes in the dark forest, on a full moon, in the old mansions.
