Check out the teaser of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina!
Netflix has released the first teaser trailer for the upcoming Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and it delivers everything that one could ask for in a spookier, darker rendition of the character we’ve grown to love from the comics.
Throughout the course of the teaser, you will hear a very creepy, arguably sensual cover of Happy Birthday as a series of creepy scene vignettes flicker in and out of the trailer. Satanic imagery featured throughout the course of the teaser reminds us that this is not going to be anything like the show many of us grew up with in the ’90s. This is going to be dark. And Sabrina’s coming-of-age will be full of horror and spook that seems like a fitting allegory for those teenage years.
The official synopsis of the show is below:
The new project reimagines 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.
Kiernan Shipka stars as Sabrina in the new series. The cast joining her consists of Lucy Davis, Miranda Otto, Chance Perdomo, Michelle Gomez, Chance Perdomo, Jaz Sinclair, Richard Coyle, Tati Gabrielle, Ross Lynch, and Bronson Pinchot..
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is writing the script for the series. He originally wrote the comic books that the Netflix series is pulling from. He will also executive produce. Lee Toland Krieger will direct and executive produce with Aguirre-Sacasa, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater.
The series will premiere on Netflix on October 26.
