One of Canada's most popular comedies, the incredible cast offers a complex take on the ups and downs of a Korean-Canadian family.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (TV-14)
Kiernan Shipka stars as the eponymous Sabrina, the familiar Baxter High School student from Greendale. But this time, she's battling a new set of mad men: vengeful demons and angry warlocks.

Season one is currently available, as is the bonus 'holiday horror' movie, “A Midwinter's Tale," which dropped mid-December.
Sabrina is slated to return in April 2019 and, thanks to an overwhelming reception, has been renewed for seasons three and four.
