Sabrina Jaz Sinclair (“Easy,” “The Vampire Diaries”) has been tapped to co-star opposite Kiernan Shipka in the untitled series based on the character Sabrina from the “Archie” comics at Netflix. Picked up with a two-season, straight-to-series order, the series reimagines the origin and adventures of the comic book character Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age tale. Sinclair will take on the series regular role of Rosalind Walker, the outspoken daughter of Greendale’s minister and Sabrina’s (Shipka) best friend. Creation Sabrina the Teenage Witch debuted in Archie's Madhouse (the logo sometimes given as Archie's Mad House) #22 (Oct. 1962). Created by writer George Gladir and designed by artist Dan DeCarlo, she first appeared in that humor anthology's lead story (the logo then spelled "Teen-Age"), and eventually became one of Archie Comics' major characters, appearing in an animated series and a television sitcom. Gladir recalled in 2007: "I think we both envisioned it as a one-shot and were surprised when fans asked for more. We continued to do Sabrina stories off and on in Mad House until 1969 when we were flabbergasted to hear it was to become an animated [TV series]. When it came to naming Sabrina I decided to name her after a woman I recalled from my junior high school days ... who was very active in school affairs, and who assigned a number of us to interview prominent people in the media. In addition, the woman's name had a New England ring to it. Some years later I recalled the woman's name was not Sabrina, but actually Sabra Holbrook."
