Chance Perdomo & Michelle Gomez Join Riverdale Spinoff

by on

The Riverdale spinoff centred around Sabrina has added two new cast members Chance Perdomo and Michelle Gomez.

The show without an official name but based on the “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” comic series has a two season order at Netflix. It follows Sabrina Spellman (Shipka) wrestling to reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal while fighting the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.

She is an empowered young woman who is just beginning her dark education as a sorceress, even as she tries to maintain a normal life as a sophomore at Baxter High. Intelligent, compassionate and brave to the point of recklessness, Sabrina is all that stands between us and the forces of darkness that threaten our world.

The show is a much darker take on the character than Sabrina The Teenage Witch and has been described as featuring horror, the occult and witchcraft.

Perdomo, meanwhile, will play Ambrose Spellman, Sabrina’s warlock cousin from England. Placed under house arrest by the Witches Council, Ambrose is forbidden from leaving the funeral home where he lives with the Spellman women. Witty, puckish and pan-sexual, he is one of Sabrina’s partners in crime, always up for mischief. 

Gomez will play Mary Wardell, Sabrina’s favorite teacher and mentor at Baxter High. When she is possessed by the Devil’s handmaiden, Madam Satan, Ms. Wardell turns into a sultry, cunning manipulator who is always trying to lure Sabrina down the Path of Night.
