The trailer for the long-gestating, live-action, Sabrina The Teenage Witch series is finally here, and it doesn’t look as bad as you might have imagined. Netflix has released the new The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina trailer, and it’s the sometimes suitably filled with cliched spooky gothic environments in juxtaposition with teen-angst-filled promotion you would expect in a promo for a series about a teenage witch. In the new adaptation of the character, Sabrina is forced between the mortal world and the witch world when she refuses to sign herself over to witches when she turns sixteen. This ends up putting herself, her family, and her friends at risk.
The series appears to begin when Sabrina makes a choice about refusing to join a coven, but that leaves a lot of questions to be answered. Will the series adhere to a more Bewitched style comedy or will it take a shot at a more sophisticated approach that includes a more adult style of supernatural adventures?
Here’s how the synopsis sums it up: Her name is Sabrina Spellman. Half witch. Half mortal. On her 16th birthday, Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) has to choose between the witch world of her family and the human world of her friends. With her aunties (Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis), her cat Salem, and her boyfriend, Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch), Sabrina will face horrors and new adventures in the mysterious town of Greendale. From the executive producers of Riverdale comes a haunting new tale. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina premieres October 26. Only on Netflix.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina arrives on Netflix on October 26th and stars Kiernan Shipka, Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis, Ross Lynch, Michelle Gomez, Chance Perdomo, Jaz Sinclair, Richard Coyle, Tati Gabrielle, Adeline Rudolph, Abigail Cowen, Lachlan Watson, Bronson Pinchot, and Gavin Leatherwood.
