Casting News - June 6, 2019

Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and USA's Briarpatch.

  • Gavin Leatherwood and Lachlan Watson have been promoted to series regulars for the drama's upcoming second. They both heavily recurred in the first season - with Leatherwood appearing in 16 episodes and Watson appearing in 19 episodes.
  • Leather plays young warlock Nicholas Scratch. In the first season finale, he was banished to the depths of Hell. With the Dark Lord trapped inside him, Nick is more of a bad boy than ever - but will Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) be able to rescue him? More importantly, will they be able to continue their relationship?
  • Watson plays Theo Putnam, who along with the rest of the Fright Club, vowed to help Sabrina protect the town of Greendale from the forces of evil. Besides rocking out with them, Theo is also going to meet a new love interest.
  • Kim Dickens has joined the cast of the upcoming season-long anthology series starring Rosario Dawson. She previously starred for three seasons in HBO's Deadwood (as well as its 2019 follow-up film), four seasons in HBO's Treme and four seasons in AMC's Fear the Walking Dead.
  • She will play Eve Raytek, the Chief of Police, an authoritative firecracker who is committed to finding out who killed Allegra's (Dawson) sister. She's a boot-stomping good old girl who's used to operating in an all-male environment. She knows how to do a shot, read a room and get things done.
