Your First Look at Netflix’s ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ is Here & I’m Screaming

After it was announced that the world of Riverdale would be getting a spinoff in the form of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, fans went wild wondering what would be different about this incarnation and the lovable, cute version that starred Melissa Joan Hart once upon a time.

As it turns out, everything. 

Today, Netflix released two of the first promotional images from the new show entitled Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

The series stars former Mad Men powerhouse, Kiernan Shipka, as our main witchy character. According to Netflix, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which is set to premiere on October 26, “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.”

This is clearly evident in one of the pictures. The first is merely a shot of Sabrina in the woods, where she is seen donning a red woolen coat and a bag draped over her shoulder, and potentially an axe based on the shaft in her hand.

The second image, however, is much more sinister. It shows Sabrina kneeling on the ground surrounded by her aunts Hilda and Zelda, played by Lucy Davis and Miranda Otto respectively, and what looks to be a coven of witches. Could this be Sabrina taking her vows as a witch?

Already this show is looking like it’s going to be one of the most binge-worthy shows of the year! You know, even if there’s no Salem the talking black cat.
