The pictures are from Tumblr, courtesy of the CHILLING tag or the Harvey Kinkle tag. However, they are all pictures from the show — CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA. Which, in turn, is property of Netflix & Archie Comics.
We all knew this was coming, right? The best and biggest new-formed OTP is Sabrina Spellman/Harvey Kinkle. Not only in the CHILLING series, but also in the original; each for their own reasons.
We will be focusing on the CHILLING series, but there are a ton more adaptations of Sabrina Spellman around the pop culture globe. Today Sabrina Spellman/Harvey Kinkle will be the featured OTP Tuesday because… of course, they are my fave right now.
Sabrina Spellman/Harvey Kinkle As A Couple In Chilling Adventures
Sabrina Spellman/Harvey Kinkle exist in the Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina ARCHIE HORROR comic series. In the comic series, however, Harvey Kinkle does get murdered. In the television series, Harvey Kinkle is very much so alive and well, for right now. Throughout the first season, Sabrina Spellman/Harvey Kinkle are the perfect couple.
Sabrina Spellman, a witch, is keeping her secret from Harvey Kinkle. She wants to tell him but is afraid that he won’t accept her the way she is. Little does she know, the secret is what is hurting her the whole time. If she was honest with Harvey from the beginning, I don’t think he would have minded. It would have been an adjustment, but it wouldn’t have been detrimental. They both love one another very much and express that in almost every scene they possibly can. You can tell they love one another.
Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina‘s Main Protagonist, Sabrina Spellman
Sabrina is petite, her hair is blonde until the last episode of the series where it is white/grey. She is born to a high priest, Edward Spellman, and a mortal, Diana Spellman. Her aunts are Zelda and Hilda Spellman, who, both, are now her parents since both of Sabrina’s died in a “car crash.” She is of medium height, and her fashion is to die for. Literally. I would die for it. She dresses so cutely that I just… love it and want to talk about it all the time.
Sabrina Spellman; The Personality Of A Witch-Queen
Who is Sabrina Spellman? Well, that is a good question – she is a half witch, half mortal, of course. She is a feminist, she is strong-willed, and she is willing to do anything for the people she loves. She uses her witch-side to help her friends, to help her family, and to help go against the patriarchy. What better half-witch, half-mortal do you need?
Sabrina makes a lot of careless decisions, like any teenager, but she does learn from her mistakes. That is very important to note, throughout any adaptation of the character, she makes careless decisions but learns from her mistakes. Her aunts both make her learn from her mistakes and fix it herself. In that regard, she grows a lot.
In Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina, Sabrina Spellman truly adapts the personality of a strong-willed female. She does things her own way, on her own time, and tries to be both a mortal and witch at the same time. She loves both of the versions of herself and doesn’t want to part with any specific one.

Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina‘s Secondary Protagonist, Harvey Kinkle
Harvey Dwight Kinkle is just as much a protagonist as Sabrina Spellman. He was born in 1949 in the comics, but in the Netflix series, seems to be of the same age as a high school student; 16-17 years of age. He appears in every single episode. Throughout the first 8 episodes, he is in a relationship with Sabrina Spellman. That is not the only thing he is, however, he is also trying to figure himself out along the way.
He has a very stern father, it is implied that he may be abusive to some extent as well. So, along with trying to find himself, he is trying to battle certain demons. Harvey is attractive, obviously, look at Ross Lynch in a crop top? But, he is political, in a sense, feminist, charismatic, and romantic. He always knows the perfect thing to say to Sabrina. There is nothing he says that isn’t just the cutest and most romantic thing in the world. And, we know Sabrina sees it too, heck, we all see it.
He has brown hair, seems to be semi-tall (about 5’10), and his smile is gorgeous. Plus, he has abs (check said crop top picture). Throughout Chilling Adventures he is loyal, hard-working, and faithful in many ways, not just towards Sabrina. He cares for his brother and making sure his brother is safe. He, ultimately, wants to make sure that his older brother is going to survive this difficult time with their father and his mining business.
Harvey just wants the best for the people he loves, and while he doesn’t always get that (see Tommy Kinkle), he does try his utmost hardest.
What Makes Sabrina Spellman/Harvey Kinkle So Great?
Not only are they a power couple, they are respectable and sweet. Harvey never disrespects Sabrina, and Sabrina, in turn, doesn’t disrespect Harvey. She may have a secret and a lie being kept, but she never treats Harvey as if he is a doormat, or as if he is lesser than she is. As a mortal, she respects other mortals, and that is what makes her a great half-breed.
Plus, Harvey Kinkle has the best pet name for Sabrina, often, all the time, calling her: ‘Brina. How cute, right? Like, tell me that’s not the cutest thing in the entire world? He literally calls her ‘Brina in almost every scene and I just can’t take it. My heart cannot take this. Aside from the cute nicknames, they possess a great love and attraction for one another. It doesn’t come off as fake or false. Sabrina truly loves Harvey and Harvey the same.
A Rare Realistic Couple On Screen
It is refreshing to see a couple on screen, especially in a dark adaptation of Archie’s Sabrina Spellman, and see such a great couple. Often we see a lot of teenage couples as childish or having spats that don’t make sense. But, Harvey and Sabrina never have that. They truly care for one another and you see this when Sabrina casts a spell on Harvey to keep him safe.
She would do anything to keep Harvey safe. That means staying up all night in the back of his truck to keep an eye on the mine, casting a safe spell, or keeping him safe by not telling him she’s a witch. In her own way, she means well and she does mean well for Harvey. We truly see a powerful couple for the eight to nine episodes we do get. A couple that puts on-screen couples to shame. They are only 16-17 years of age and have such a powerful love for one another. Who would have thought?
If you have yet to watch Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina do yourself a favor and watch it as soon as you can. It’s chilling, it’s dark, and it’s witchy.
