New Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Photo Teases a Sabrina Spellman Love Triangle
A brand new behind-the-scenes photo of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been released and based on the pic, we might have a love triangle on our hands. The series hasn’t even aired yet and fans have already fallen in love with Kiernan Shipka‘s Sabrina Spellman and Ross Lynch‘s Harvey Kinkle, but there’s a possibility that a handsome boy could get in between them. Enter Gavin Leatherwood, who will step in to play a new character named Nicholas Scratch.
It seems like showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is trying to pull off a love triangle with these three. He tried to accomplish it with Riverdale‘s Archie, Betty, and Veronica, but fans became too obsessed with #Bughead for them to ever want Betty to be with Archie.
Now, he might have a second chance with this good-looking trio! Thanks to a new photo posted to the CAOS Twitter account, we got a glimpse at “brina and the boys.”

This isn’t the first time the reboot has teased a possible love triangle. Last week, CAOS posted another photo which sees Ross and Gavin kissing Kiernan on the cheek.

We cannot even imagine anyone coming between Sabrina and Harvey, but we also need to remind ourselves that this Sabrina reboot is very different than the original. It’s unlikely that Kiernan’s Sabrina will ride off into the sunset on the back of Harvey’s motorcycle as No Doubt‘s “Running” plays in the background like Melissa Joan Hart did in the original Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
According to Buzzfeed, Gavin’s character is “a young and handsome warlock at the Academy of Unseen Arts who befriends Sabrina when she’s a new student. An acolyte of Sabrina’s father’s teachings, Nicholas is drawn to Sabrina — and there are immediate sparks between them.”
Sparks!? We don’t like the sound of that. Nicholas is a witch, too, so he and Sabrina will probably connect on levels that she and Harvey can’t. In the Archie Comics universe, Harvey has always been Sabrina’s longtime boyfriend, but he’s also blissfully unaware of her supernatural side. We don’t want to jump to any conclusions, but the fact that the series keeps teasing us with this possible love triangle means Gavin’s character might definitely cause trouble for the Glendale couple.
Of course, Sabrina’s love life is only a minor chapter in her story. A Netflix press release described the new – and much darker – Sabrina as “an empowered young woman, just beginning her dark education as a sorceress, even as she tries to maintain a normal life as a sophomore at Baxter High.” She’s often “all that stands between us and the forces of darkness that threaten our world.”
While we are still anxiously awaiting a trailer (hurry up, Netflix!), we do know that the series will officially drop on October 26th – just in time for Halloween!
