Wondering if Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on Netflix is ok for kids? Rated TV-14 for language, nudity, gore, and witchcraft, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina should be rated TV-MA and is not kid friendly. Season 4 is now out on Netflix. Here’s what parents need to know in this Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Parents Guide.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Parents Guide
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is set in the fictional town of Greendale and is a dark, semi-Satanic, story that includes horror and witchcraft. Sabrina Spellman must reconcile her dual nature as a half-Witch, half-mortal while fighting the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.
This version of Sabrina is not the light-hearted Melissa Joan Hart, Sabrina the Teenage Witch TV show.
Parents need to know that the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is dark, involves witchcraft, and has strong language and sexual content. It is not for kids and is not afraid to show blood and violence.
There is language like a–, bit–, sh–, damn, bastard.
Characters are bullied for their sexuality. There is a nonbinary character.
There are rituals, cannibalism, children sacrificed, throats slit, death, resurrections, dark magic, etc. Scenes are quite graphic in which characters thank Satan. A child is cooked in an oven and you see said child in the oven. There are murders and lots of death.
There is talk of sex and virginity and some nudity. You see side boob from a character. There are also references to sex between adults and underage minors. There is an orgy.
Is Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Appropriate for Kids Under 16?
I wouldn’t recommend Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on Netflix for kids under 18 years old. The whole satanic aspect is just too much. I’m not sure what’s going on with the ratings at Netflix, but this should not be TV-14, just like Cobra Kai should not be TV-14.
When they say chilling adventures, believe them, because some of the scenes are horrific to watch. Season 4 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is more of the same and still not kid friendly. There is also a suicide which sends the wrong message to viewers.
Sure, there are elements that are interesting for adults, or lessons to be learned, but I would skip this. If you want a show about witches or witchcraft, stick with Charmed.
