Satanic Settlement Reached in 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' Statue Suit
The Satanic Temple and producers of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina have reached a settlement in a dispute over the statue of a goat deity that's prominently featured in the Netflix series, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
TST sued Netflix and Warner Bros. earlier this month, claiming a statue that's displayed in Sabrina Spellman's fictional school The Academy of Unseen Arts infringes on its copyright in a monument of Baphomet. TST also wasn't happy with having its statue associated with certain themes in the series, specifically the "prominent use of this symbol as the central focal point of the school associated with evil, cannibalism and murder."
Warners has confirmed the settlement, but declined to comment further.
TST attorney Stuart de Haan on Wednesday sent THR a statement: "The Satanic Temple is pleased to announce that the lawsuit it recently filed against Warner Bros. and Netflix has been amicably settled. The unique elements of the Satanic Temple’s Baphomet statue will be acknowledged in the credits of episodes which have already been filmed. The remaining terms of the settlement are subject to a confidentiality agreement."
