It's the 90s remake we've all been waiting for and now we've found out who be playing Sabrina Spellman's other half. The next Harvey Kinkle will be none other than Ross Lynch. Younger fans might recognise him from Disney's "Austin & Ally" and 2017 movie My Friend Dahmer - which looks unreal.

As this was my last photo shoot for the Dahmer run, let me just say that this film is something that I’m very proud of, and I couldn’t be happier with everyone’s responses to the film. Thank you for the continued support always. There is a lot of new music coming your way, and I’m sure you will love it.
A fan favourite character, the original Harvey, played by Nate Richert, became the number one mortal Sabrina constantly needs to rescue. Not only does Sabrina turn Harvey into a dog, she replaces Harvey's mom's pregnancy with an entire litter of kittens. In what fans called a "perfect ending", the end of the Sabrina college years saw the original Harvey and Sabrina jump on his Harley Davidson and sail off into the sunset together.
As The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comics have a much creepier and darker tone to the original series, Harvey is expected to be more of an intense romance for Sabrina instead of the lovable dumb jock from the original series.
Lynch will join Kiernan Shipka, who'll play Sabrina, Miranda Otto (Aunt Zelda), Lucy Davis (Aunt Hilda), Michelle Gomez and Richard Coyle, whose character will be a malevolent twist on the principal Mr. Craft. We're expecting a dangerous relationship between himself and Aunt Hilda, for old times sake.
We're not going to lie, Ross, you have big shoes to fill.
