The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, a Spooky Pop Up and New Series on Netflix
New Series: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
The beloved TV series Sabrina the Teenage Witch has been reincarnated by Netflix, this time airing as The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Streaming exclusively on Netflix starting October 26th, 2018, Kiernan Shipka, of Mad Men acclaim, portrays Sabrina in a new, dark light. Netflix promises a darker tone than the mid-nineties original series, perhaps to appeal to its now-grown audience. It’s also been said to follow closely to the comic book series, which is now on my list to read.
Netflix and Teen Vogue partnered up to host a one of a kind pop-up event in Los Angeles, CA to promote the new series. At the venue we were given a menu of options and told to choose a path- dark or light. Is this alluding to a choice Sabrina must face in the upcoming series? Will she use her powers for good or for evil? Luckily we only had to pick our choice of nail decal, lip color and flower crown. Once we had chosen our path, dark side-obviously, our “coven” was brought inside to be pampered by friendly staff.
The real magic happened upstairs. The only thing girls in LA love more than flower crowns are elaborate photo ops. My personal favorite was the chance to sign my soul away to the Devil himself, how fun! The witchy vibes were on full force in this room filled with candles, animals bones and other sacred objects. If this room is an any indication of the shows new tone, it’s going to be a thrill to watch.
We also got a chance to enter the hallways of Baxter High school and show off our newly acquired witch powers. With a full wind machine, lockers popping open and swinging lamps, this has to be one of the most elaborate photo ops I have taken part in. Baxter High was a pleasant reminder that while Sabrina is a witch, she is a still a teenage witch. Kiernan Shipka seems like a super-natural fit for this role. *pun intended*
