The first season of Netflix’s show Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was a major hit for the streaming service. Naturally, it didn’t take long for the show to get renewed for a second season. This time around, thanks to the first season’s popularity, the show has a bit more cultural cachet, so it will probably be easier for the series’s producers to procure guest stars. Here are some celebrities who would make great guest stars for the show.
Lana Del Rey
Sabrina is a fictional witch but Lana Del Rey is the real deal, at least some of the time. Lana surprised many of her fans when she admitted to taking part in a binding ritual, which is a form of witchcraft. Lana’s music is dark and cinematic, much like Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and many of the young people who love the show also love Lana’s music. It’s a match made in heaven, or in Sabrina’s Satanic case, a match made in hell.
Throughout her career, Stevie Nicks was rumored to be a witch. These rumors were partially born from Fleetwood Mac’s hit song, “Rhiannon,” which Stevie admitted was about an old Welsh witch. Others said that Stevie must be a witch because of her unique black wardrobe, which might pass as an extremely elaborate and expensive Halloween witch costume. Having played a similar role on American Horror Story: Coven, she has already displayed her witch bona fides for the world to see.
Elvira, Mistress of the Dark
Elvira, Mistress of the Dark has spent most of her career mocking inexpensively produced horror movies on cable television. It might be a nice change of pace for her to be involved with something that has a budget. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has a spooky ambience mixed with a killer sense of humor, which is very similar to Elvira’s personal brand.
Before Trent Reznor or Rob Zombie were even born, Alice Cooper was the king of shock rock. His delightfully ghoulish stage performances and horror movie referencing lyrics provided legions of fans with a perfect mix of thrills and chills. He also hasn’t shied away from mentioning the devil in his lyrics, so he could always write a tie-in single for everyone’s favorite Satanic Netflix witch.
Melissa Joan Hart
At the risk of sounding incredibly obvious, Melissa Joan Hart would be perfect for an episode of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, since she played Sabrina Spellman in the beloved 1990 sitcom Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina might have introduced us to a radically different interpretation of the character, but there’s a good chance that the new version of Sabrina wouldn’t even exist if not for the fact that Hart’s version of the character was successful with audiences. If Melissa Joan Hart were invited to guest star on the show, it would feel like a passing of the torch from one generation to the next, and from a more innocent generation of television shows to a new, darker generation.
Thanks to his roles in The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Stephen King’s It, Tim Curry has a place in the heart of numerous horror fans. An episode of the show with Tim Curry would be a massive draw. Given that Curry has remained active into his senior years, he might be up for a guest appearance.
