The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is about Sabrina Spellman, who is half-mortal and half-witch trying to choose if she wants to live in the path of night or light.

Netflix has yet to respond to these allegations, but the Satanic Temple and Warner Brothers are finalizing a settlement, says Business Insider.
