Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa recently told Entertainment Weekly that the first season will act as a group of mini-movies, with one of those movies set to pay homage to The Exorcist. Sabrina Spellman is turning 16, but for this young witch, her birthday festivities seem to be much different from your traditional sweet 16.
'I think they're doing it in a smart way - change it up, don't make it the same.
A new teaser for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has arrived and it's pretty wicked.
The new series has been made by those behind the Netflix hit "Riverdale", although it has been confirmed it will have no connection to it. There will be plenty of soapy teen drama along with all the horror and magic, as we can see from the brief shots of the school and Sabrina at a party. While the show is still expected to have some humor, expect it to be more of the ironic and twisted variety than the wholesome family fun-for-all-ages gags you may have enjoyed 20-odd years ago.
Sabrina The Teenage Witch was always a little out of step with Archie and the rest of the Riverdale crowd, thanks to her magical powers. I'm guessing he won't be quite as wisecracking in this version, though. The first teaser for CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA puts all of that on display with the creepiest iteration of the birthday song ever is sung as evil sorcery goes on in the background.
