Sabrina Netflix Series (fka Chilling Adventures of Sabrina)
The Sabrina Netflix series is based on the characters from The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina from the Archie comic universe. The script was written by Riverdale showrunner Aguirre-Sacasa who will also serve as director and executive produce the series alongside CW’s comic book TV super-duo Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. Jon Goldwater (Archie Comics CEO) and Lee Toland Krieger will also serve as executive producers.
The series was originally developed for The CW, but later moved over to Netflix, who picked it up for a 20 episode order across two seasons. According to the official logline, the Sabrina Netflix series will be a “dark coming-of-age story” that is based on the origins of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. It’s both a blessing and a curse, her half human/half witch nature is a constant struggle, but it allows her to stand up against the dark forces that has her, her family and everyone they know in its crosshairs.

Trial & Error – Season 2 (TV Series)
Kristin Chenoweth is returning to Vancouver to topline season two of NBC’s Trial & Error. Kristin was in Vancouver back in 2005 for her role in the movie RV alongside the late Robin Williams. She was in town again for the movie Deck the Halls and again for her role as Maleficent in the first Disney Descendants movie.
This time around she’ll be playing a suspected killer named Lavinia Peck-Foster. She hires the legal team who represented John Lithgow’s character, Larry Henderson, in the first season. The odds are stacked against them though, as Lavinia was caught with some extra baggage… her husband Edgar who was stuffed into a suitcase and stowed away in her car.
Kristin will be joined by Nicholas D’Agosto, Jayma Mays, Steven Boyer, Krysta Rodriguez, Sherri Shepherd and Amanda Payton. John Lithgow is rumoured to reprise his role as Larry Henderson in some capacity.
After filming its first season in California, Trial & Error has made the move to film season 2 in Vancouver. Thank you as always to @lemon_buzz for breaking the news that the Trial & Error was relocating to Vancouver!
Trial & Error season 2 will continue filming in Vancouver and British Columbia until May 22nd.
