I know people initially laughed at the idea of a darker, more serious, version of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, but I don’t think those people knew about the comic book series that inspired this new adaptation. The “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” is a wonderfully macabre series that explores the darker side of Archie comics and presents a Sabrina steeped in evil witchcraft. And by the looks of things, Netflix may have perfectly captured the spirit of the series.
“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” is set to hit the streaming service on October 16th, just in time for Halloween. It’s perfect timing as Netflix is going to need some kind of supernatural property to get them through the Halloween season as “Stranger Things” season three won’t be out till next year.
The show will tell 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.
So far they’ve only released a teaser trailer, but you can check it out down below.
