Critic Reviews for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 1

All Critics (105) | Top Critics (38)

Chilling Adventures ends up being a surprisingly complex interrogation of power, aware both of the necessity of women claiming it and of the consequences that usually follow when that power is used for revenge.

Oct 30, 2018 | Full Review…

Is it too much to expect that a show about the difficulty of deciding between the light and the dark would, I dunno, literalize that conflict with a swoony bad influence?

Oct 25, 2018 | Full Review…

If you're wondering about talking cats or one in particular (Salem), Sabrina's cat does not talk in this series, but it's got a much cooler bag of tricks instead.

Oct 25, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The longevity of Sabrina's adventures has yet to be determined, but with Shipka and the gang signed on for the full ride, I'd gladly follow this witch to the moon and back.

Oct 22, 2018 | Full Review…

You're gonna be on Sabrina's side. Shipka is great here: The startling promise she showed on Mad Men has matured into bona fide acting chops.

Oct 19, 2018 | Full Review…

The cast is a big perk - Lucy Davis and Miranda Otto, in particular.

Oct 15, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Manages to transport its characters into a strange world; twisted and full of bloody rituals, satanic statues, and interdimensional travel. [Full review in Spanish]

Mar 1, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina does enough to prove that reboots - in the right hands - can pay service to the original while paving their own way.

Jan 2, 2020 | Full Review…

The new Netflix series takes Sabrina back her dark roots, and it's a campy and engaging return.

Oct 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Chilling Adventures is to Sabrina, the Teenage Witch what The Dark Knight is to Adam West's Batman series.

May 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

If you're looking for a bewitching and bewildering good time, then sign the Book of the Beast and check out the second season of Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Apr 13, 2019 | Full Review…

...In spite of all this, for much of the series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina manages a light touch. The show does not lose sight of the fact that it is ultimately intended as a piece of pop culture.

    Rotten Hollywood review: 96%

    Had a lot of fun watching it, but I really don't think there's much to go on plot wise for later seasons.
  • Feb 02, 2021
    This is the worst case of "Sign My Yearbook!" I have ever seen. That aside, the fresh new approach to the show is definitely not for everyone. The dark dramatic tone is a nice change to the over-comical previous version with the animatronic Salem. This world has a much better perspective on witchcraft and history, and the fact that there are consequences and not just funny happy endings. They are mixing in a lot of mythos and lore (i.e.: Paganism is not Satanism) surrounding the beliefs and such (why only 4 stars), but is an otherwise fascinating retelling and the actors are phenomenal.
  • Jan 28, 2021
    Sabrina is one of the best shows around. It is PERFECTLY casted; each character's relationship with one another is believable, electric and makes you want to invest in them. This show may not be for everyone, but it should be made clear the whole devil aspect is a plot point and NOT the spirit of the show. This is a darker story that actually feels uplifting and bright, oddly enough. This is an awesome experience of the supernatural, but it's emotional depth is what makes you love to re-watch it.
  • Jan 24, 2021
    Why take it off I'm love it she need more episodes and her and nick need better ending . Why guys got do my girl like that :(
  • Jan 12, 2021
    Riverdale's companion series is one hell of a ride. Kiernan Shipka's acting for our favorite witch is good. Good effects, acting and plot.
  • Jan 10, 2021
    Amazing! I love the characters, and the concepts and how Netflix is creating a universe around the Archie comics. Definitely recommend it!
  • Jan 10, 2021
    Although the creators have exaggerated a bit with blood, the idea is creative, interesting and fresh.
  • Dec 29, 2020
    Entertaining but instead of actual demonology as a basis the just use inverted Christianity, if you're into that it can be perceived as disrespectful to some deities.
  • Dec 18, 2020
    I absolutely love this show! It is about to enter the 4th season as I write, it is obvious it will be a cult classic for years to come. Not easy to have it all in one show and I hope Netflix will consider making even more seasons. I am rewatching from the beginning right now. I rarely rewatch shows, yet I am fascinated and hooked.
