Ross Lynch Cast as Harvey on Netflix’s The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Netflix’s upcoming Sabrina the Teenage Witch reboot, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, found Sab’s love interest! Former Austin & Ally star Ross Lynch has been cast as Harvey Kinkle, Sabrina’s boyfriend. Ross will play opposite Mad Men actress Kiernan Shipka, who is set to take on the role of Sabrina.
Ross’ character, Harvey, is described as the Prince Charming of a dark fairy tale, the son of a coal miner and a dreamboat and a dreamer, who is completely unaware of the dark forces conspiring to keep him and Sabrina apart. Sorry not sorry, but we’re already picturing how adorable Ross and Kiernan are going to be on screen together.
Ross’ previous role saw him play notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, but, of course, we all know him from Austin & Ally. Ross seems to be thrilled about this drastic role change, as he tweeted, “Harvey Kinkle everybody”, with a link to the announcement:

Ross then teased us even more, following the tweet up with, “You guys are gonna binge watch the sh*t out of this show.” Ugh, as if waiting without a release date wasn’t already bad enough!
The Sabrina reboot is based off the Archie Comics horror series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, similar to how Riverdale is also based off Archie Comics. This Sabrina series promises to be much, much darker than the previous sitcom version of the show, which starred Melissa Joan Heart in the titular role. The reboot will focus on Sabrina’s struggle as a half human, half witch while fighting off evil forces.
In addition to Harvey and Sabrina, Netflix has cast Lucy Davis as Aunt Hilda, and Miranda Otto as Aunt Zelda. The only bad news here is we have no word on when the series will actually appear in our Netflix accounts, but for now, we’ll take what we can get!
