Chilling Adventures of Sabrina imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft.

Also starring in the series is Miranda Otto, Richard Coyle, Lucy Davis, Tati Gabrielle, Michelle Gomez, Ross Lynch, Chance Perdomo, Bronson Pinchot, Jaz Sinclair, and Lachlan Watson.
The first season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is set to arrive on Netflix just in time for Halloween on October 26th.
