In celebration of Friday the 13th, the spookiest of days, the good people at Netflix have released a heap of new images for the upcoming Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina, including a brief video featuring key cast members of the show assembled.
Posted to the show’s official Instagram account, the video shows Kiernan Shipka, wearing the black headband that features in the show’s poster art, panning back to reveal cast members including Miranda Otto and Lucy Davis, who play as Aunts Zelda and Hilda.
“Welcome to our coven,” indeed.
A number of other images appeared on the official Instagram, including some very pretty poster art for the show, some flickering candles, a picture of Kiernan Shipka looking very chic in character, and a close-up of a black cat’s eyes, the kitty in question presumably being Salem.
Sabrina, which premieres “soon” on Netflix, is a reboot in the vein of Riverdale, and promises to be a dark and brooding take on the life of the teenage witch, in the vein of horror films like Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist.
The show “finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature – half-witch, half-mortal – while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.” We’re beyond ready for this thing to arrive, so plz hurry up, Netflix.Image: Getty Images / Axelle-Bauer Griffin
