Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will cast a spell on viewers this Halloween.
The streamer confirmed at the Television Critics Association summer press tour that the witchy drama will launch its 10 episode first season on Friday, October 26.
Kiernan Shipka will lead the cast of the series which is based on the Archie comic book series of the same name.
Sabrina is “an empowered young woman, half-human, half-witch, [who] is just beginning her dark education as a sorceress, even as she tries to maintain a normal life as a sophomore at Baxter High."
"Intelligent, compassionate and brave to the point of recklessness, Sabrina is all that stands between us and the forces of darkness that threaten our world.”
"The hourlong drama reimagines the story of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age tale that traffics in horror, the occult and witchcraft, naturally," reads the official logline.
"The new iteration is described as in the vein of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist and finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal while fighting the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit."
The series was confirmed to be in the works last year, but as a companion series to Riverdale. It was in development at The CW.
However, Netflix brokered a deal with Warner Bros. TV Group and a production deal for two seasons was reached.
The cast Jaz Sinclair, Michelle Gomez, Chance Perdomo, Lucy Davis, Miranda Otto, Richard Coyle, Ross Lynch and Tati Gabrielle.
