The as-of-now untitled project will be based on the Archie Comics characters, and is set to reimagine the origin and adventures of Sabrina The Teenage Witch, who will be played by Kiernan Shipka.

This series promises to be “a dark coming-of-age story,” which will tonally be more reminiscent of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist.

Here’s a summary of Miranda‘s upcoming role: Proud and devout, Zelda believes there is no greater honor than serving the Dark Lord as a member of the Church of Night. She is the family’s disciplinarian, fiercely protective of Sabrina (Shipka), and very much Cain to Hilda’s Abel.
