The “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”

Some students and maybe some of their parents remember watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch. It was a light comedy about a witch girl that had powers, but attended normal high school. Just recently, a new make of the show came out on Netflix called The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. It has a completely different story line, but pretty much the same characters, except for the talking cat named Salem. This new show is a dramatic and enthralling story about a girl who is caught between two worlds.

In the first season, a teenage girl named Sabrina, who is a witch, must decide whether or not she wants to have her “Dark Baptism.” A Dark Baptism is the witch world’s way of bringing a young witch completely into it. Her aunts and pretty much everyone around her are practically forcing her to do it and giving her no choice. She is half human, half witch and goes to a regular high school and has regular best friends. However, she is being talked into the Dark Baptism where she would attend a witch school with magical peers. The season is full of adventures and Sabrina finding out more about her real parents and the dark sides of the witch world. The second season deals with unearthing the true secrets of Sabrina’s witch coven, the Church of Night.

This show has gotten very good reviews, including an 82% rotten tomatoes. Not only do critics and the public enjoy this chilling, coming-of-age story, but students have also spent time on the couch watching Netflix. “It’s such a great show and I watched it nonstop when it came out so it only took me a few days to finish. I can’t wait for season three,” says Ashlyn Lee, a sophomore. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina keeps you watching and watching and wanting more.

This show is full of mysteries and adventures that leave you on the edge of your seat. It has a spooky chill to it that keeps it interesting. The characters are great and some of them bring some very humorous moments. The story is good and it has a good balance of being dramatic, scary, and funny. This is a great show that Netflix has come out with and is worth a watch.
