Kiernan Shipka is known for playing Sally Draper on Mad Men and Jinora on the Legend of Korra

I've never seen "Mad Men", but I watched "The Legend of Korra" last year, so I should theoretically be familiar with her voice, although I can't picture the character that it says she voiced.

Also, what's with the @dovecameron at the bottom?

I read that Dove Cameron was supposed to get the role of Sabrina and I guess a Riverdale fan account for some reason wanted to tag her :/

I heard the Internet really wanted Dove to get the role, not that she was supposed to get it. She played along with it, such as randomly posting a picture of comic Sabrina. I'm not sure how she would have been able to play the role, anyway, since she was recently cast in two separate Marvel things, playing two separate characters.

If the video series anything like the comic book, Sabrina will barely be in it, while every new episode seems to shift focus to any other character besides the girl whose name is in the series' title.

I haven't read past issue #1 yet, but I'm guessing the show won't be exactly like it, more like kinda-sorta inspired by it. There's gonna be ten episodes of probably around 40+ minutes each. They're burn through all of the comic content in five episodes at that rate.

I just hope it doesn't go completely dark, just because it's a Netflix series. Sure, it can have dark moments, and Sabrina can be torn and conflicted and stuff, but it needs to be able to have fun as well. Kinda like, well, "Riverdale"; it knows to not take itself too seriously.

I kinda wish they'd do it as a slightly darker version of "Sabrina's Secret Life" and/or "Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch". Have Sabrina attend a witch school in addition to regular high school. Maybe introduce a live-action version of Cassandra as her classmate/nemesis.

For the aunts, I've got a few people in mind. Any combination of two of these would be fine:

Melissa Joan Hart (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melissa_Joan_Hart)
Emily Hart (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emily_Hart)
Soleil Moon Frye (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soleil_Moon_Frye)
