Satanists Sue Netflix, Warner Bros. For $150M, Saying \Sabrina\ Copied Their Statue

Sabrina makers sued by Satanic Temple over statue

Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina may have a crossover with American Horror Story, according to a new theory.

In Netflix’s new Sabrina series, the half-witch’s Aunt Hilda makes a passing reference to her cousin Montgomery, who Aunt Hilda says is a movie star.

Halfway through Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, viewers get to lay eyes on a huge statue located at the Academy of the Unseen Arts – the fancy witch school Sabrina is attending. While this may look like a statue of the devil to the untrained eye, it is, in fact, a demon named Baphomet. The roots of Baphomet can be traced all the way back to the 1300s, but the statue in Sabrina bears an uncanny resemblance to one commissioned by the Satanic Temple in 2013. It looks so similar, in fact, that the Satanic Temple has filed a lawsuit.

The Salem, Massachusetts-based Satanic Temple, a political activism group that advocates for free will and compassion toward all creatures, said the monument Baphomet with Children appears in at least four of first 10 episodes of the show in ways that imply it “stands for evil.”

It’s likely the makers of Sabrina spotted the Baphomet statue someone – online, perhaps – and assumed it was an old enough design that it was free to use. There have been Baphomet statues in the past, of course, and it’s probable that no one realized this particular design – which features two very modern children grinning up at the winged, goat-headed man – was created recently.

Satanic Temple co-founder Lucien Greaves believes that their Baphomet statue “has come to represent [satanists] as a people,” and adds: “To have that all at once entirely eclipsed by some Netflix show by a production department who did a Google Image Search… A lot of people who haven’t heard of us first stand to just recognize that monument as the Sabrina monument, which dilutes and denigrates the entire project.”

Don’t hold your breath for the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 trailer. While there’s plenty of footage for Netflix to choose from with filming already underway, it’s likely that the streaming service will want to wait as long as possible before giving us our first glimpse at the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 trailer. After all, the first season has only been out for a couple of weeks, and while hardcore fans are probably on their second rewatch, the rest of the world is still working their way through the series. We definitely won’t see anything of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 trailer this year, but maybe, if we’re lucky, Netflix will offer up a New Year teaser. Praise Satan!

I get where Greaves is coming from here. And yet, at the same time, you’d think the Satanic Temple might just be cool with something like this and let it slide, but apparently not. Netflix and Warner Bros. refused to comment on the matter, and it’s unclear now what will happen. The entities could of course always reach a settlement with the Satanic Temple, or this could go to court. Hopefully if the latter happens, Baphomet himself is called to testify.

Just like the first season there’ll be ten Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 episodes to sink your teeth into once the second season finally hits Netflix. While this is generally a lot less than most American TV shows – not to mention Netflix’s own slightly bloated Marvel series – fans will no doubt be pleased with the number of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 episodes, not least, because the first season was so well balanced. What the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 episodes will be called will also give us some hints as to what to expect from the second season, but, knowing this, it will be a while before Netflix clues us in on the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 episode titles.

As things stand, those who (probably) won’t be a part of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 cast include Justin Dobies as Tommy (Harvey’s brother) and Bronson Pinchot as Principal Hawthorne as both characters met their end in season 1. Having said that, don’t rule them out completely. This is a show, after all, that deals in resurrections, ghosts, and other supernatural beings on a semi-regular basis, so there’s no saying both Dobies and Pinchot won’t turn up in season 2 in some capacity or other. Personally, I’d be very surprised if Tommy doesn’t come back to haunt Harvey either physically or metaphorically.
