The Sabrina Reboot Is Set To Drop Right Before Halloween
Time to hit up the group chat and organise a Halloween slumber party!
Netflix has just announced the premiere date of their Sabrina reboot, which will star Kiernan Shipka of Mad Men and Lifetime's Flowers in the Attic adaptation.
All 10 episodes of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will drop on Netflix on October 26, the Friday before Halloween.
Written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa -- who's also behind Riverdale -- the show “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".
The show promises to be a much darker adaptation of the Sabrina character than the '90s sitcom that starred Melissa Joan Hart, with the press release about the show stating that it will be "tonally in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist."
Sabrina will "[wrestle] 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.”
While we're obvs v. excited for Sabrina, this announcement means that we're going to have to wait a little longer for the show that's held the pre-Halloween release date for the past two years -- Stranger Things.
Speaking at the Television Critics Association press tour, Cindy Holland -- Netflix's Vice President of Original Content -- said that the delay was due to the creators' "really [wanting] to take the time to get it right".
