Netflix's Sabrina The Teenage Witch Series Casts Lucy Davis As Aunt Hilda

Netflix's Sabrina The Teenage Witch Series Casts Lucy Davis As Aunt Hilda

We previously reported that Sabrina herself will be played by Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka, who was excellent in her role as young Sally Draper.

Deadline reports Wonder Woman star Lucy Davis has been cast as Aunt Hilda in Netflix's The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

Gomez will play Mary Wardell, Sabrina's favorite teacher and mentor at Baxter High.

According to Variety, when Mary is possessed by Madam Satan - the Devil's handmaiden - she turns into a sultry, cunning manipulator, always trying to lure Sabrina down the Path of Night.

Perdomo, meanwhile, will play Ambrose Spellman.

Now that the two shows are on different networks, It remains to be seen if there will be any formal association between Riverdale and the Sabrina series.

Jaz Sinclair (Easy) will join Shipka as Rosalind Walker, Sabrina's best friend.

Also cast in the Sabrina reboot is Midsomer Murders actor Chance Perdomo who will be playing Sabrina's cousin Ambrose Spellman, who has been forced to live under house arrest with the Spellmans by the Witches Council. He is also a very willing partner in crime for Sabrina. It is reportedly going to be in the tone of psychological horror classics Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist as the adaptation "finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature - half-witch, half-mortal - while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit". In the original Archie comics, Hilda was the meaner of the two aunts Sabrina lives with but in the ongoing 2014 comic books series, she is depicted as kinder and more nurturing. The new Sabrina show, now untitled, comes from Riverdale developer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and is being executive-produced by director Greg Berlanti.

The series was originally set for the 2018-19 season.

Are you guys excited about the casting for Sabrina the Teenage Witch?
