In just a few weeks, our eyes will be glued to our TV screens when Chilling Adventures of Sabrina drops on Netflix – and after months of waiting, our first official look at the Riverdale (semi) spin-off has finally been released! Just a little warning: It will literally scare the hell out of you. It’s so much creepier than we thought it would be and nothing like the ’90s sitcom you remember.
Netflix unveiled a new poster for the series and promised that “something witchy” was coming our way and now the show’s first trailer is here! It’s been 15 years since Melissa Joan Hart starred as a loveable witch on ABC’s Sabrina the Teenage Witch. But for those of you who thought the reboot was going to share some similarities with the comedy, this preview will shatter all those dreams.
Let’s start off by saying the show will certainly live up to its name because this teaser is chilling. Not only does it promise a darker take on the teen witch we grew up loving, but it’s like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Aside from the downright terrifying cover of “Happy Birthday,” the clip also includes a look at the new Sabrina Spellman’s high school, the town of Glendale, the Weird Sisters, and even a passionate kiss between Sabrina and her boyfriend Harvey Kinkle! Is it safe to say we’re already smitten with Kiernan Shipka and Ross Lynch‘s characters? We think so.
The teaser also embraces the spooky theme of the comics, which paid homage to classic horror movies like Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist. But nothing is as creepy as the final scene which sees most of the show’s characters sitting around a table as Sabrina blows out the candles on her cake. Can anyone tell us who the horned creature sitting directly across from her is?
The series stars Lucy Davis and Miranda Otto as Hilda and Zelda Spellman, Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood, Chance Perdomo as Sabrina’s cousin, Tati Gabrielle as her rival Prudence, Gavin Leatherwood as Nicholas Scratch (who might be involved in a love triangle with Sabrina and Harvey), as well as Jaz Sinclair as Sab’s BFF Rosalind and Michelle Gomez as Madam Satan.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina premieres on Netflix Oct. 26. We don’t know about you, but we know exactly what we’ll be doing on Halloween night… binge-watching all the episodes.
