PHOENIX – The trailer for Netflix’s new series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is finally here!
The series is based on and named after the comic books published by Archie Horror, an imprint of Archie Comics. The story follows Sabrina Spellman, played by Kiernan Shipka, as she makes one of the biggest decisions of her life. On her 16th birthday, she must choose between her unearthly destiny and her mortal boyfriend, Harvey.
You might remember the 90’s sitcom Sabrina the Teenage Witch staring Melissa Joan Hart.
That spin-off followed the storyline of the original Sabrina comics. The newest series goes down a much darker path.
In the trailer, Sabrina appears at a dinner table on her 16th birthday. An eerie version of “Happy Birthday” plays in the background as a cake with blood red candles is placed down in front of her. We see flashes of rituals, spells, school, and a creepy character with horns on his head. The same horns that appear on Sabrina’s head in the poster shared by Netflix on Instagram.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is produced by the same people that brought us Riverdale, the show based on the characters from the beloved Archie Comics. It’s no surprise this remake’s trailer appears to be just as ominous as the previous live-action comic book series.
Although the two share the same original publishers and producers, there is no plans for a crossover yet. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is on Netflix while Riverdale is on The CW.
The cast for the Netflix show will also star Ross Lynch as Harvey, Lucy Davis as Hilda Spellman, and Miranda Otto as Zelda Spellman.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will debut on Netflix on Oct. 28, just in time for Halloween!
