The newest Sabrina the Teenage Witch adaptation is getting more skin on its bones with the recent announcement that they’ve cast Aunt Hilda. And who’s the lucky lady? None other than Lucy Davis! Davis’ filmography includes roles in the BBC’s The Office, Shawn of the Dead, and most recently, Wonder Woman, so she’s definitely got the chops for this role.

Caroline Rhea, who plaid Aunt Hilda in the iconic television show, took to Twitter to offer her congratulations to Davis.

Hilda has a “motherly nature and warm sense of humor” that “belie a wicked, ghoulish streak,” and is “as adept at brewing spite jars against her family’s enemies as she is at concocting love potions for the students at Baxter High.”
Hilda was also my favorite, because she was the goofy one, loved a joke, but fiercely loyal and heartfelt. She also had the best lines of the entire show.

Davis has quite the shoes to fill, but I’m excited to see how she makes the iconic role her own. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is expected to premiere on Netflix later this year, and as the streaming service is producing the show, you can expect it to be incredible. Seriously, props to Netflix for the content they’ve been putting out.
