In case you ever wondered why the Netflix reboot of “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” seemed so eerily satanic, maybe it has something to do with the fact that the streaming service employs actual Wiccans to ensure maximum accuracy.
According to LifeSiteNews, actress Kiernan Shipka (who plays the iconic teenage witch in the reboot) told Jimmy Kimmel this week that both she and the show’s writers consult real Wiccans for better authenticity. . .
Shipka first jokingly quipped she goes on “a few ride-alongs, a few seances” before admitting the truth: “We have a few people who are practicing Wiccans … it’s nice. You feel like you’re making the right moves and doing the right things. You feel like you have some advisory, which is really nice. We’re not all just doing this.”
“Sabrina, the Teenage Witch” returned to the small screen once again in October 2018 as the “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.” This time, however, the light-hearted innocence of the original Melissa Joan Hart sitcom was jettisoned in favor of an unapologetically dark, satanic tone, shot-through by occasional bouts of meta-humor.
In this darkly twisted version, gone are the laugh tracks and cheerful one-liners of the original, where witchcraft and magic were more of a punchline to a joke rather than an actual force for Sabrina to reckon with. Here, the “teenage witch” is a newly-minted 16-year-old on the cusp of signing her soul over to a coven of Satan-worshippers, which her two aunts – Zelda and Hilda – are all too eager to facilitate.
