Aimed at teenagers, the series contains disturbing messages about Satanism, feminism, sexuality and everything in between. Here’s an in-depth look at the agenda behind Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
'With the advent of streaming services such as Netflix, entertainment is increasingly consumed in the form of multi-episode series. Spanning for dozens of hours, these series do not simply tell a story, they create immersive worlds in which viewers become greatly invested. Indeed, modern series are not strictly about a narrative – they’re long-winded experiences that become a part of the lives of those who watch, rewatch and binge-watch them.
The first season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, a series aimed at teenagers, contains ten one-hour episodes. In these ten hours of content, lots of words get said, lots of messages are implied, and lots symbolism gets burned in the minds of the viewers. And, as someone who sat through this first season (twice), I can confirm that there is a lot to unpack in there.
