According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gomez will star as Mary Wardell, one of Sabrina’s favourite teachers at Baxter High who becomes possessed by the devil’s handmaiden and attempts to lead the young witch to the path of darkness.
Netflix’s take on the series, which will serve as a companion to supernatural high school drama Riverdale, is set to be somewhat of a departure from the Melissa Joan Hart comedy of the 1990s. The streaming giants have billed it as a dark coming-of-age tale in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist. So, yeah, different.
Newcomer Chance Perdomo is also set to join the cast.
