Production is currently underway on Netflix's upcoming "Riverdale" spinoff, "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina," which was created by the same minds that brought us The CW's dark and twisty take on the "Archie" comics series. Now, some new set photos that have surfaced online have given fans their first look at the titular teenage witch and her hunky love interest in action.
The snaps come courtesy of paparazzi cameras, which captured actors Kiernan Shipka (the "Mad Men" alumna who's playing Sabrina Spellman) and Ross Lynch (the "Glee" star who's playing Sabrina's boyfriend, Harvey Kinkle) strolling hand-in-hand and gazing at each other sweetly while shooting a scene on the show's Vancouver set. The photos were so cute that "Sabrina" writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (who's also the "Riverdale" showrunner and the chief creative officer of Archie Comics) couldn't help but share one of the illicit snaps on social media, too.

"Well, it's out there," Aguirre-Sacasa wrote on Twitter. "A 1st look at Harvey and Sabrina from the "Chilling Adventures of
#Sabrina." ADORBS, right?"
We definitely concur. While it's true that paparazzi set photos sometimes ruin some of the magic of certain projects, since a behind the scenes glimpse can either spoil plot points or the surprise of a specific character's reveal, in this case, we think this look at Shipka and Lynch can only help fuel fan excitement.
"The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" has already received a two-season pickup from Netflix. No word yet on a premiere date.
