Kiernan Shipka: How Much Is the ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ Star Worth?
We’ve watched actress Kiernan Shipka grow up in front of our eyes. When Shipka was just six years old, she auditioned for the role of the precocious Sally Draper on the acclaimed 1960s-set series, Mad Men. Shipka would play the role for eight years until the show finally wrapped in 2015. Now a full-fledged adult, Shipka’s career in Hollywood has elevated to more significant and rather magical heights.
These days, the Chicago native is the star of the acclaimed Netflix series, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The series is nothing like the light and fluffy TGIF sitcom that Melissa Joan Hart made popular in the ’90s. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is dark, bewitching, and racy. If you’re as obsessed with it as we are, you’re going to want to probably watch it with the lights on to be on the safe side. After 13 years in the entertainment industry with a career that’s getting bigger each day, what is Kiernan Shipka’s net worth?

Though Shipka’s breakthrough was as Sally on Mad Men, she began her career a couple of years prior by appearing in print ads before landing an on-camera role on the show, Monk. She also appeared on Cory in the House, MADtv, and Heroes before finally sliding on Sally’s Mary Janes. The pint-sized actress was a series regular on the show until it ended. In 2017, she signed on as the lead in Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
Though the first half of Season 1 just debuted in Oct. 2018, the series, including Shipka’s performance is already garnering praise. So much so that we can expect to see the second half of Season 1 when it hits Netflix April 5, 2019. Fans have been incredibly receptive to the series which centers on Sabrina Spellman (Shipka), a half-witch, half-mortal who is trying to reconcile her place in the world. The series has been so acclaimed that Netflix released a Christmas special episode in December 2018 and have already renewed the series for Season 2, Part 1 and Part 2. Season 2 will have a total of 16 episodes.
What’s next for Shipka?
More Sabrina means Shipka can certainly garner a bigger check when she goes back into negotiations with Netflix. However, don’t expect to see her confined to Riverdale. Shipka is set to appear in the horror film, The Silence opposite Stanly Tucci and her Sabrina co-star Miranda Otta.
Also, there might be a chance for Shipka to reconnect with Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner in the future. In an interview with W Magazine, Weiner discussed a possible Mad Men spin-off. He said, “The only sequel to Mad Men that I can imagine is continuing the story of Sally Draper. I want to know what happens to her. And that is because of Kiernan.” He called Shipka a ” heartbeat for the show.” We’d certainly be obsessed with seeing Sally come of age in the 1970s.
