Sabrina makers sued by Satanic Temple over statue

The Satanic Temple is suing Netflix for a statue featured in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

The Satanic Temple claims the entertainment giants copied its depiction of deity Baphomet in The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina.

The lawsuit, filed at a federal court in New York on Thursday, claims the depiction of Baphomet constitutes misappropriation, confusion of origin and injury of reputation.

“The unique elements of TSTs expression of the idea of Baphomet, and particularly the use of a male chest rather than voluptuous large female breasts, and the configuration with a small boy and small girl looking at the Sabbatic Goat head of the statue, were unquestionably copied by defendants,” the complaint said.

Legal documents state: "What makes this case particularly striking and significant is that it arises in the context of Defendants who are highly sophisticated media production and distribution companies which blatantly misappropriated Plaintiffs unique expression of an idea even though they have a long history of vigorously protecting their own intellectual property."

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 adds the Satanic Temple created its depiction of Baphomet in part "to promote First Amendment values of separation of church and state and equal protection".

The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina is a supernatural drama programme starring US actress Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina Spellman, a half-mortal half-witch who is torn between her two identities.

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!

It is based of the same comic book series which spawned Sabrina The Teenage Witch, starring Melissa Joan Hart and running from 1996-2003.

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.

The Satanic Temple says it does not worship Satan but instead works to "encourage benevolence and empathy among all people".

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.
