A witch’s 16th birthday is very special, and full of horror, darkness and the occult in Netflix’s teaser and key art for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
A far cry from the ‘90s sitcom starring Melissa Joan Hart, this version about the origin and adventures of Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka), a half-witch half-mortal teenage girl, takes a tone in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist.
Netflix’s teaser and key art focus on Sabrina Spellman’s Super Satanic 16. 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.
The series is set in the same universe as the CW’s Riverdale, and from Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who also serves as chief creative officer of Archie Comics, the version on which the Netflix show is based. He executive produces alongside Riverdale collaborators Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater and Lee Toland Krieger.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina premieres October 26 on Netflix.
