The duo, played in the new series by Mad Men star Kiernan Shipka and Disney Channel wonder-kid Ross Lynch (best known for his lead role in sitcom Austin & Aly) were snapped holding hands on set, and the pic was shared by showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (who also helms fellow Archie comic-based series Riverdale).
The new drama, currently titled The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, is set to be a darker take on the teenage witch’s adventures, in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist. It serves as a spin-off to teen drama Riverdale, which revolves around Archie comics characters.
Shipka and Lynch will be joined by Lord of the Rings star Miranda Otto and Brit Lucy Davis (best known as Dawn from The Office) as Zelda and Hilda Spellman respectively.
