Welcome back to Greendale, witches. Netflix has released the first trailer for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2, launching globally on April 5, 2019. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2 consists of nine episodes.
And for the impatient, the Dark Lord’s gifts are abundant: a special holiday episode, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale, launches December 14th.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, starring Kiernan Shipka, imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. Tonally in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, this adaptation 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.
The cast also includes Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis, Ross Lynch, Michelle Gomez, Chance Perdomo, Jaz Sinclair, Richard Coyle, Tati Gabrielle, Adeline Rudolph, Abigail Cowen, Lachlan Watson and Bronson Pinchot.
Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who also serves as chief creative officer of Archie Comics, wrote the script for the series. Aguirre-Sacasa executive produces alongside Riverdale collaborators Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater and Lee Toland Krieger.
The drama hails from Warner Bros. Television-based Berlanti Productions. The series has already been picked up for two seasons.
