‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ Prequel Novel Coming Next Year

Kiernan Shipka as “Sabrina Spellman”

Heads up, witches: we just discovered a listing by Scholastic for Season of the Witch (The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Book 1) on Amazon. Although no official announcement has been made by Scholastic, the news makes sense: the company has previously confirmed plans to release books based on Sabrina’s sister show, Riverdale. According to Amazon the novel, written by Sara Rees Brennan, will be released on July 9, 2019. 

You can read the official synopsis below, which confirms the book to be a prequel to the Netflix series.

It’s the summer before her sixteenth birthday, and Sabrina Spellman knows her world is about to change. She’s always studied magic and spells with her aunts, Hilda and Zelda. But she’s also lived a normal mortal life — attending Baxter High, hanging out with her friends Susie and Roz, and going to the movies with her boyfriend, Harvey Kinkle.

Now time is running out on her every day, normal world, and leaving behind Roz and Susie and Harvey is a lot harder than she thought it would be. Especially because Sabrina isn’t sure how Harvey feels about her. Her cousin Ambrose suggests performing a spell to discover Harvey’s true feelings. But when a mysterious wood spirit interferes, the spell backfires… in a big way.

Sabrina has always been attracted to the power of being a witch. But now she can’t help wondering if that power is leading her down the wrong path. Will she choose to forsake the path of light and follow the path of night?

Our exclusive prequel novel will reveal a side of Sabrina not seen on the new NETFLIX show. What choice will Sabrina make… and will it be the right one?

Stay tuned to TV Source Magazine for more information as it becomes available.
