Richard Coyle has been cast in a major role on The Chilling Adventurs Of Sabrina adaption on Netflix.
Coyle will play Father Blackwood opposite Kiernan Shipka and Miranda Otto on the show from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. TV. Coyle’s Father Blackwood, is High Priest of the Church of Night and Dean of the Academy of the Unseen Arts. Ruthless and ambitious, Blackwood hides a terrifying dark agenda that will put him in direct conflict with Sabrina (Shipka) and other members of the coven.
Based on the Archie Comics characters, the Untitled Sabrina Project reimagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch (Shipka) as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. Tonally in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, this adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature — half-witch, half-mortal — while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.
