Sabrina isn't a friendly teenage witch anymore.
Sabrina the Teenage Witch was a 90's classic television series starring Melisssa Joan Hart as the titular character. The show was funny and charming, a true sitcom to the core. Netflix is planning to reboot the series, but their reiteration of the friendly witch is miles away from the Sabrina of the 90's. Entitled Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the new series stars Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka as a young Sabrina Spellman. A new trailer for the show was released online, and its haunting tone is a refreshing twist on the Archie Comics character.
In the trailer, Sabrina is set to celebrate her 16th birthday, which is monumental in the witch world. She sits at a table that holds her birthday cake, but her party guests don't look to be in a celebratory mood. Scenes of teenage romance, a mortuary, goat-headed demons, pentagrams, and creepy witches flash before your eyes as the "Happy Birthday" song is sung solemnly in the background. The executive producers behind Riverdale will bring Chilling Adventures of Sabrina to life, and the shows will also exist within the same universe. Watch the brief teaser trailer below and check out Chilling Adventures of Sabrina when it lands on Netflix this October 26.
