Netflix’s ‘Sabrina’ Reboot Casts Ross Lynch As Its Harvey Kinkle

Sabrina the Teenage Witch fans, brace yourselves, because Netflix confirmed on Wednesday that Ross Lynch has been cast in the role of Sabrina’s boyfriend in their upcoming, untitled Sabrina the Teenage Witch reboot.

According to Variety, the series will be based on the Archie Comics novel, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and the new Harvey that Lynch will portray is described as “the prince charming of this dark fairy tale … the son of a coal miner, a dreamboat and a dreamer, completely unaware of the dark forces conspiring to keep him and Sabrina apart.”

Lynch took to Twitter to share his excitement around the news.

The Sabrina reboot reimagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina as a dark coming-of-age story involving horror, the occult, and witchcraft. The series is described as being similar in tone to that of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, and will see Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal, while fighting against the evil forces that threaten her, her family, and the world.

Other confirmed cast members include Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina, Miranda Otto as Sabrina’s Aunt Zelda, Lucy Davis as Aunt Hilda, Chance Perdomo as Sabrina’s cousin Ambrose, Jaz Sinclair as Sabrina’s best friend Rosalind, Michelle Gomez as Sabrina’s possessed teacher Mary Wardell, Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood, and Bronson Pinchot as principal George Hawthorne.
