Back in January, we announced Netflix’s upcoming original series – Chilling Adventures of Sabrina – based on the horror-centric comic series from Archie Comics. We now have a new teaser that comes to us straight from executive producer and Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
Aguirre-Sacasa wrote and created the Afterlife with Archie and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comic series, so we’re thrilled that he’s so involved with the show.
The teaser also announces the new official social media accounts for the show (@sabrinanetflix on Twitter and Instagram) that shares all sorts of special sneak peek photos and videos with their coven of fans.

According to an early report from Vanity Fair, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will be “a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft” in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist.
They have also hinted that, unlike the CW’s lighthearted-comic-turned-teen-murder-myserty series Riverdale, Netflix’s new show will be a more focused adaptation of the Archie Horror graphic novels.

The show stars Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men, The Blackcoat’s Daughter) as the iconic Sabrina Spellman, previously portrayed by Melissa Joan Hart on the squeaky-clean family-friendly TV series in the 90s.
The show also stars Lucy Davis (Shaun of the Dead) as nurturing Aunt Hilda, Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers) as disciplinarian Aunt Zelda, Richard Coyle (Grabbers) as Father Blackwood, Ross Lynch (My Friend Dahmer) as Sabrina’s beau Harvey Kinkle, Tati Gabrielle (The 100) as Sabrina’s outspoken best friend Prudence, Michelle Gomez (Doctor Who) as teacher Mary Wardell, and Chance Perdomo (Midsomer Murders) as Sabrina’s warlock cousin Ambrose.
