Sabrina showrunner, Robert Aguirre-Sacasa, has revealed our first look at witch-turned cat, Salem, who’ll be starring in the upcoming Netflix series.
One of the best parts of Nickelodeon’s Sabrina The Teenage Witch series was the personality that Nick Bakay put into Salem, Sabrina’s pet cat, who wasn’t actually a cat but a witch who had been sentenced to live 100 years as a cat after trying to take over the mortal world.
Now, we get our first look at the Salem that’ll star in Netflix’s upcoming Riverdale spin-off, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, that’ll adapt the later Archie comics which sees Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a much more darker character that’ll have to save the mortal world from some supernatural horrors coming our way.

Of course, right now this doesn’t really reveal that much other than Salem will continue to embody that of a black cat. We currently don’t know who’ll be voicing Salem, if anyone at all.
What we do know for sure is that Kiernan Shipka is taking on the role of the teen witch along side Jaz Sinclair who’ll be playing the role of Rosalind Walker, Sabrina’s human best friend.
