The one problem I have with this is that it's looking like Salem will be a non-talking cat in this new series. This isn't a deal breaker because the rest of the show looks fabulous, but it does make me a bit sad because he was my favorite character as a kid.

It'd be pretty cool if Salem was Sabrina's version of Black Phillip from The Witch.

Abandon all your Salem-related hopes because it became clear early in filming that Kiernan Shipka is allergic to cats.

Just pump her full of allergy shots, clearly

e: tho tbf I have a feeling Salem wasn't going to be a big part of this/probably wouldn't be a sassy talking cat, whether Shipka was allergic or not lmao.

The gently caress is the point of the cat if he doesn't talk and taunt the Spellmans? Give me the abominable puppet, I demand it.

I don't know much about Chilling Adventures, but does Salem talk and stuff in that? I'm sure there's diff iterations of Sabrina where he doesn't so it'll make sense if he's just a plain ol' cat or magical in some other way in the show.

That said I want a fuckin talking cat voiced by Nick Bakay goddamnit. I imagine a lot of people coming into this are only going to have any real experience with the MJH show so it'll be interesting seeing reactions to Salem not being the Salem most people remember from their youth lol

It's like the tiniest thing for me to complain about, though, in the face of these trailers and the casting in general for the show. I have a pretty good feeling I'm going to like this show more than Riverdale.

Yeah that's my main source of Sabrina info, too, and the giant box of 50s/60s comics my stepdad has and I read like 80 times over on a really long road trip one time.

I've seen shit you people wouldn't believe. Cop cars on fire off the shoulder of I-94. I watched search lights glitter in the dark near the Ambassador Bridge. All those moments will be lost in time, like piss in the drain. Time to retch.

The cat definitely talks in Chilling Adventures, he's even a bit sassy.

Hmmm, according to this Salem WILL be returning in the new show and WILL be talking they just haven't picked (or at least not announced) a voice actor for him yet: https://www.radiotimes.com/news/on-...ssover-trailer/

Also he's super cute:

Salem is bad because it becomes ethically problematic to pet a human-cat.

Not much fun

If you think about it, Salem is a pretty weird name for a witchís cat because the trials have got to be a pretty dark period in witch history. Itís like naming someone after a genocide.

It's been a looooong time, but I'm sure he was a wizard (named Salem) that tried to take over the world or something and being turned into a cat was his punishment. So it's not like Sabrina adopted him and named him after the witch trials.

I rewatched all of the old Sabrina a couple months back and this is just the teeny tiny tip of the absolute nightmare horror show that is how the Spellmans treat ethics and consent.

My fiance came back from a trip to London this summer with the whole box set and tore through it til.. I think the end of S7. The one just before she goes to college and they have to write around losing 2 cast members and it goes really weird. I knew Tv's Frank wrote some stuff and was in it but I never knew he had such a big role in making the show. Which is really weird because I went from watching Sabrina every day to watching MST3K on winamp.


Anyway I don't know where I'm going with this but Sabrina the Teenaged Witch was super fun and I quote it to this day and I'm excited for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina to be super dark and kinda gay like Riverdale

In the 90s show yes. In the main comics Iím not sure if they ever established a backstory, he didnít start talking until after the TV show aired IIRC.

In the comic this is based on, the whole world domination thing was a cover for his real past, which honestly I didnít find all that interesting.
