'Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina': Can A Teenage Witch Ever Have It All?

Before you watch this trailer, I feel obligated to remind you that Chilling Adventures of Sabrina won’t be landing on Netflix until October 26th. This is an important detail to keep in mind, because after you watch this trailer, you’re gonna want to watch the whole damn thing even more than you already do.

It’s, uh, really a very good trailer.

Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) is a half-mortal/half-witch teenager with a choice to make on her 16th birthday. Namely: which half is she going to go with? And based on this trailer, it looks like maybe she opts for whichever one doesn’t require a dark baptism in the middle of the woods. Not that it seems to do her much good — she’s clearly having to balance her normal human friends with the supernatural shenanigans around her. Her teacher (Doctor Who’s The Master herself, Michelle Gomez) has been possessed and is now Madam Satan (so, like, sultry Devil-worshippingly evil The Master?). And it sure looks like her aunt Zelda (Miranda Otto) kills her other aunt, Hilda (Lucy Davis), and then THAT aunt comes back from the dead?

Look, I was already really excited about this series. I didn’t need this trailer to convince me. But now that I have seen it, I have a feeling these next few weeks are going to pass real slowly. Anybody got a spell for that, and will it involve a blood sacrifice?
