The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina finds its Harvey Kinkle

Meet the new Harvey Kinkle! Lynch previously starred in "My Friend Dahmer", playing a notorious serial killer named Jeffrey Dahmer. Netflix's Sabrina is based on Archie Comics' The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which are significantly more dark than Melissa Joan Hart's sweet and sassy comedy series.

Netflix's Harvey is described as "the prince charming of this dark fairy tale, Harvey is the son of a coal miner, a dreamboat and a dreamer, completely unaware of the dark forces conspiring to keep him and Sabrina apart". According to ET Online, other stars who are confirmed for the show include Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis, Chance Perdomo, Jaz Sinclair, Michelle Gomez, Richard Coyle, and Bronson Pinchot.

Played by Nate Richert on the original, Harvey was Sabrina's high school sweetheart and undercover OTP, but don't expect the spooky reboot to necessarily retread the same path.

While there's no word yet as to when the Sabrina series is going to drop, Netflix has thrown its full weight behind it with a two season, twenty episode order.
