In case you didn’t know already, Netflix’s reboot of Sabrina the Teenage Witch is going to be very, very different from the 90s comedy.

The first trailer for the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina series has now been released, showing how the show has been reimagined as a dark coming-of-age story starring Kiernan Shipka as the half-witch, half-mortal.

The first video features Sabrina celebrating her 16th birthday, and sees her apparently sharing her lovely blood-red cake with a group of vacant-eyed kids and a horned demon.

Cheery.

With creepy woodland rituals, dingy high school hallways and pretty much perpetual night, the teaser definitely delivers the change of tone that Netflix has promised.

The series is produced by the team behind Riverdale, and was originally pitched as a companion series to the hit teen supernatural drama.

Based on the Archie comic book of the same name, the series also stars former Doctor Who star Michelle Gomez, Lord of the Rings’ Miranda Otto, and The Office star Lucy Davis.

Ross Lynch, Chance Perdomo, Jaz Sinclair, Richard Coyle, Tati Gabrielle, Adeline Rudolph, Abigail Cowen, Lachlan Watson, Bronson Pinchot and Gavin Leatherwood all feature in the new series.
