    Here's What The New "Sabrina" Cast Look Like Compared To The '90s Sitcom

    Chilling Adventures of Sabrina offers quite a different take on our fave witches.

    Sabrina Spellman

    ABC, Diyah Pera/Netflix

    While Melissa Joan Hart played a bubbly Sabrina who gets into kooky adventures because of her powers, Kiernan Shipka is a much more angsty teen witch. She's struggling to decide whether to commit to the satanic Church of Night and say goodbye to her mortal life (and friends) forever – or else put her loved ones at risk.

    Harvey Kinkle

    ABC, Netflix

    Nate Richert played Harvey in Sabrina the Teenage Witch, while Ross Lynch has the role in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. In both iterations, he's Sabrina's wholesome and good-guy boyfriend who gets caught in the crossfire of her magic – although the stakes are so much deadlier for the new Harvey.

    Hilda Spellman

    ABC, Netflix

    Caroline Rhea's Hilda was impulsive and emotion-driven, and Lucy Davis' Hilda is likewise emotional, as well as incredibly maternal and caring.

    Zelda Spellman

    ABC, Netflix

    Beth Broderick's Zelda is a rational scientist and the more serious of the Spellman sisters. Miranda Otto, meanwhile, gets to play a Zelda whose strictness is driven by her devotion to Satan, and who can get quite murderous when crossed.

    Salem

    ABC, Netflix

    Nick Bakay voiced the wise-cracking Salem, a witch trapped in a cat body, on Sabrina the Teenage Witch. The Salem in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a (mostly) mute goblin who becomes Sabrina's familiar in cat form.

    And that's it for the familiar Sabrina characters. Chilling Adventures also introduces some new faces – like Gavin Leatherwood as Nicholas Scratch, a student at the Academy of the Unseen Arts (the witch school) who takes a keen interest in Sabrina.

    Netflix

    Chance Perdomo plays Sabrina's cousin and confidante Ambrose Spellman, a witch who is under house arrest for a crime committed long ago.

    Netflix

    Jaz Sinclair plays Sabrina's best friend Ros Walker.

    Netflix

    In the comics, Ros is Sabrina's rival, but the show makes them nothing but good friends.

    Lachlan Watson plays another of Sabrina's mortal friends, Susie Putnam.

    Netflix

    Michelle Gomez plays Ms Wardell, Sabrina's favourite teacher at her mortal high school who gets possessed by Madame Satan.

    Netflix

    Richard Coyle plays Father Blackwood, high priest in the Church of Night and dean of the Academy of Unseen Arts.

    Netflix

    And rounding out the cast is Tati Gabrielle as Prudence, Abigail Cowen as Dorcas and Adeline Rudolph as Agatha – three orphaned witches and the Academy's resident mean girls who make life hell for Sabrina.

    Netflix

    It's a whole new world for Sabrina.
