Netflix has released the trailer for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale, the special holiday episode which launches globally on the streaming service on December 14. Netflix has also shared the following poem to promote the special:
‘Twas the week before Solstice and we’re back in Greendale
To share with you the trailer for the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale.
So summon your familiar and prepare for some holiday magic,
But if you don’t light your yule log, the results may be tragic.
On December 14th, we invite fans to settle in for a cozy winter’s night,
A bright solstice to all and to all a good FRIGHT!
The Church of Night, like all covens, celebrates the Winter Solstice—the longest night of the year—when families gather around the Yule Fire to sing pagan carols and tell ghost stories. But the holidays are also a time for guests and visitors—both welcome and unwelcome— you never know what might come down the chimney…
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter’s Tale, was directed by Jeff Woolnough from a script by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa & Donna Thorland.
The second season of the series will launch on April 5, 2019. Netflix released the first trailer for the new season this weekend, and you can still watch it by clicking here.
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.
