"Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" Gets a Super Spooky Teaser Trailer

Netflix Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Poster
Look up the word "unafraid" in the modern comic book dictionary and there you will find, inexplicably, the kid-safe face of Archie Andrews, iconic and timeless figurehead of Archie Comics. To be concise, we aren't giving Archie himself this label, but the comic imprint itself, which has taken more chances in the last 10 years than I can count. From a zombie outbreak that threatened to devour all of Riverdale to Jughead's little werewolf mishap, and most memorable for me, the re-imagining of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Gone was the squeaky clean, uber-white suburban facade, cast away in favor of a very Hammer Horror tone with EC Comics style frights around every corner. It was a monumental achievement, and now, I'm hoping it will be an equally intoxicating Netflix TV series!

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina tells the story of Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka), a half-witch half-mortal teenage girl. She’s been waiting her whole life for her 16th birthday, but something wicked this way comes, forcing her to choose between the path of light and the path of night. A Netflix Original Series from the makers of Riverdale. CAOS arrives October 26th.

The series imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. Tonally in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, this adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature—half-witch, half-mortal—while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family, and the daylight world humans inhabit.

Via Deadline, the cast includes Lucy Davis as Aunt Hilda, Miranda Otto as Aunt Zelda, Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood, Ross Lynch as Harvey Kinkle, Tati Gabrielle as Prudence, Michelle Gomez as teacher Mary Wardell and Chance Perdomo as Sabrina’s warlock cousin Ambrose Spellman. Bronson Pinchot will recur as George Hawthorne, Baxter High’s villainous, Puritanical principal.

Showrunner Aguirre-Sacasa exec produces alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Jon Goldwater and director Lee Toland Krieger.
