The wait is almost over. Netflix’s wicked new series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will begin streaming on October 26th. We’ve been looking forward to the spooky new series for months, and after much anticipation, it’s finally almost here. Netflix hosted the show’s premiere on October 19th, where cast members walked the “black carpet”—including none other than Salem the cat.
Fans of the original Sabrina the Teenage Witch will remember Salem Saberhagen as Sabrina’s wisecracking cat companion. He was prone to giving the young witch questionable advice and was definitely a fan favorite. But the reboot has already diverged from the original series in several notable ways, including casting a real cat to play Sabrina’s familiar (as opposed to a puppet). So while the new Salem can’t crack jokes, he can strut a red carpet.
The show’s four-legged star stole the show at the premiere as he posed for pictures. And he looked absolutely purrfect.
Seriously—what a handsome cat.
Vulture notes that there are actually five cats sharing the role of Salem in the upcoming Netflix series. Sadly, Kiernan Shipka apparently didn’t spend much time cuddling her costars. The actress is unfortunately allergic to cats, which caused her to break out in hives during her first month on set. We suppose art can’t imitate life all the time.
And in case you missed it, here’s the full trailer for the spooktacular new show:
Is it October 26th yet?
