With the news that Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is coming to Netflix this October, the streamer has started the promotional train for the highly anticipated TV series. 

Two pictures have been released that give us our first look at Sabrina Spellman and some of the other characters in her life. 

Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina Spellman

The first of which shows Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) in the woods, presumably in one of the many precarious situations the character finds herself in throughout the series.

As a witch, Sabrina will be trying to come to terms with what it entails to be practicing magic while simultaneously trying to get by as a teenager in the town of Greendale. 

The second image has a more ominous tone, with what looks like some sort of ritual.

Could this be the moment Sabrina finds herself being told about the power she has?

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina "reimagines the story of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age tale that traffics in horror, the occult and witchcraft, naturally," according to 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 started its life at The CW as a companion to the network's red-hot Riverdale, and while it was expected to get a series order down the line, Warners Bros. TV group agreed to a production deal with Netflix. 

What's more, the streamer also gave the show a two-season order, and each of the seasons will span ten episodes. 

The cast also includes Jaz Sinclair, Michelle Gomez, Chance Perdomo, Lucy Davis, Miranda Otto, Richard Coyle, Ross Lynch and Tati Gabrielle.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina debuts October 26 on Netflix.

Netflix Quotes

When I came to this country, I was a young man, but my heart was like yours. I was sad, angry, and scared. When I met Miriam, I didn't know we would fall in love. We started as friends, or she tried to be my friend, but I wasn't interested. We worked together at the World Relief Fund. I was so sad that we couldn't help all of the people. Miriam told stories from the Old Testament. About people who had so many troubles, slaves who wanted to leave the desert. They had no food nor water. But in all of this, God came to their rescue and helped them. I used to make fun of God. I was just like you. I didn't believe there was a God who can do wonders. Then, my life started to improve. The pain in my heart also started to fade away. I started to think about the slaves in the desert. I thought it was their will, their faith in each other, that made God possible in the desert. Maybe we make God. God does not make us. Kwesi, me and Miriam are not asking you to believe in what we believe in. Also, we are not asking you to think about us as your mother and father. We are telling you the important things so that you can follow and choose when you want.

Kwesi's Father

Jonathan: I notice a little bit of dryness on your cheek.
Tom: That’s my Lupus.
Jonathan: Okay, let’s talk about that a little. One thing I know about Lupus is that it’s all about SPF. Like, we have to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays because sun actually can cause inflammation and flare ups for people with Lupus.
Tom: Right...
[Cut to Jonathan’s confessional]
Jonathan: How you take care of yourself is how the world sees you, and he’s not taking care of himself.
