Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina series has added two new faces to its cast.
Variety reports that actors Michelle Gomez and Chance Perdomo have officially joined the cast of Netflix’s upcoming Riverdale spinoff, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
Both Gomez and Perdomo have signed on as series regulars and from the sounds of things, they’ll share close ties with Sabrina herself.
Perdomo, who’s fairly new to the small screen, will play Ambrose Spellman. His character’s last name alone should be a dead giveaway to the fact that he and Sabrina are related.
Haling from England, Ambrose is Sabrina’s warlock cousin who just so happens to live with the teenage witch and her family. Currently, the character has been placed under house arrest by the Witches Council so he’s not allowed to leave the funeral home the Spellman’s call home. That doesn’t mean he’s not about to get into some trouble with his cousin, however!
Ambrose is described as “witty, puckish, pan-sexual” and as Sabrina’s go-to partner in crime.
Meanwhile, Gomez will play Mary Wardell, a teacher at Baxter High who also happens to be one of Sabrina’s mentors. Ms. Wardell may start off as Sabrina’s favorite teacher, but it doesn’t sound like things will stay that way.
The official synopsis for her character clues us into the fact that she may very well become the season’s big bad after she’s possessed by the Devil’s handmaiden, Madam Satan. After that, she’ll be making it her mission to lure Sabrina down the Path of Night.
We can’t wait to check out Netflix’s Sabrina the Teenage Witch when it eventually makes its grand debut on the online streaming platform!
