Sabrina the teenage witch is finally back! But like never before?
With Halloween just around the corner, Netflix decided to officially release the first trailer for “The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina” and it is nothing less than…..chilling. If you were a fan of the sitcom Sabrina from back in the day, this is a complete 180 from the original. Think more along the lines of “The Devil Inside” or “The Conjuring” and yes I’m serious.
This darker, gloomier version follows a teenage Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) who really owns her supernatural powers of witchcraft and the trailer shows her fully accepting her destiny.
The trailer is set to a petrifying tune- think 1920’s Happy Birthday petrifying, with no dialogue at all. Trust me, the trailer did not need any dialogue to get it’s point across. We get to see a lot in the first trailer such as mortal high school friends, a mortal boyfriend, and of course, the Devil, just in case you were wondering.
As of this moment Netflix seems to be keeping most of the main plot points a secret, but that does not mean we can’t hear from Sabrina herself. Kiernan Shipka (Sabrina) recently spoke about how amazing it was to be cast in a lead role for the first time in her career. “I was like, Oh my God, this is heaven. I’m obsessed with everything about it,” she explained. She also went on to talk about everyone’s favorite character (or at least mine) Salem the cat! But unfortunately, it did not take long before she realized she is actually allergic to cats and joked “the cat is the one cast member I don’t get along with”.
Although this trailer did not really offer too much, again no dialogue, this is only the first teaser trailer. The show is not set to release until October 26th so we still have a ways to go. Until then totally expect Netflix to keep us updated with at least 2-3 more trailers.
