WATCH: First Teaser for ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’

Sabrina Spellman is turning sixteen – and you’re invited.

As you can probably imagine, this isn’t going to be your run-of-the-mill sweet sixteen. From the trailer Netflix dropped, the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina promises to be a dark reimagining of the beloved ’90s sitcom most of us remember. It was difficult to tell from teaser images alone just how far into the dark Sabrina was going to wander, but the trailer makes it clear that the series leans quite heavily into its horror elements. With sinister overtones of occult dealings and witchcraft, of course.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which stars Kiernan Shipka, will pay homage to The Exorcist, which should give you some idea of its horror foundations. And that’s good news for anyone missing the cancelled FOX series this Halloween season – Sabrina might fill that void, just a little bit. The trailer certainly does a good job of getting us in the mood for the Halloween season. The imagery is dark (literally and narratively), rife with misty forests, candles dripping wax, occult circles and…oh yeah, the Devil himself. Sabrina smiles sweetly before blowing out a cake full of red candles, Satan seated at the table of partygoers, drenched in shadow.

Needless to say, we’re going to show up to this party. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina premieres October 26 on Netflix, so you can curl up with your hot drink of choice and plenty of Halloween candy to celebrate. Find out more about the series on the official website and check out the teaser below!
