We were already excited for Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the darkly cheeky update to the story of half-witch, half-mortal Sabrina Spellman. But then we saw the first full-length trailer, and can it please be Halloween already?
Or we’ll just transport ourselves to Greendale, where every day is like Halloween and Sabrina must decide whether to give up her creepy and magical witch life, or her high-school friendships and sweetly scared boyfriend Harvey. We know, from previous series Sabrina the Teenage Witch and the overall premise, that somehow she must find a way to balance both—but the fun is in finding out how.
Everything about this trailer is great, from Miranda Otto’s dry delivery and Michelle Gomez’s “let’s not be catty bitches” to the music choices and wonderfully creepy imagery of Sabrina clawing her way free from her destiny:
The official synopsis, from Netflix:
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina tells 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.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina premieres Friday, October 26 on Netflix.
