Netflix’s upcoming reimaging of Sabrina the Teenage Witch has yet another addition to the cast as actor Richard Coyle will be portraying the show’s main antagonist.
Deadline reports that Coyle has been cast as the villainous and merciless Father Blackwood, a High Priest of the Church of Night and Dean of the Academy of the Unseen Arts. The show will see Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) come into conflict with Blackwood and the rest of his coven.
Based on the Archie Comics series by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Sabrina is a dark coming-of-age tale centered on Sabrina Spellman as she has to balance a life studying the occult with the trials and tribulations that come with being a teenager. The pilot will be written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and directed by Lee Toland Krieger with the series being co-produced by Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
The series stars Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina Spellman, Lucy Davis as Hilda Spellman, Miranda Otto as Zelda Spellman, Jaz Sinclair as Rosalind Walker, Chance Perdomo as Ambrose Spellman, and Michelle Gomez as Mary Wardell.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is currently in development and is expected to be released in either 2018 or 2019.
10 Actresses Who Could Play Zatanna In The DC Extended Universe
Zatanna Zatara is one of the most iconic women in DC Comics. A superhero with a defining costume who works as a stage magician to cover the fact that she’s as real sorceresses, Zatanna is a character fans have wanted to see on the big screen for some time now, and that may be happening sooner then some would expect. Justice League Dark has been in the works for quite some time now, and the film seems to be a high priority for Warner Bros. and DC. Zatanna is a founding member of the team so it makes sense she would appear in the film.
The character should be a high priority for Warner Bros. and DC as she could not only appear in Justice League Dark, but also the main Justice League series. In the comics, Zatanna has ties to Batman, so that could build on a previously existing relationship. Introducing her also provides the chance to add more women to the Justice League roster. She could be the crossover character that unites the two different franchises in the DC Films slate.
