The Archie universe has found its Harvey Kinkle! Netflix’s new Sabrina the Teenage Witch series, created by the team that brought you Riverdale, has cast its male lead.
And it’s not just any male lead…it’s Ross Lynch! Lynch is known for his starring roles in Disney Channel hits like Austin & Ally and Teen Beach Movie. He also is a member of the band R5. He will also star in the upcoming film, Status Update, alongside Olivia Holt.
The character is described as “the prince charming of this dark fairy tale, Harvey is the son of a coal miner, a dreamboat and a dreamer, completely unaware of the dark forces conspiring to keep him and Sabrina apart.”
The news was released this week, and Lynch confirmed the news on his Twitter account. Ross even changed his profile picture to a picture of the animated Harvey Kinkle from “Sabrina: the Animated Series.”
Much of the cast for the new Sabrina show, coming to Netflix, has been cast. Mad Men star Kiernan Shipka was cast in the leading role of Sabrina.
