Fans of Sabrina the Teenage Witch got a little teaser for the reboot, and it looks super cool! Today, a poster for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was shared on Twitter.
The minimalist art and the easily recognizable iconic elements of the original show make it into a really awesome poster that we’re sure even those who are not over the moon about the reboot will appreciate.
The publisher, Archie Comics, responsible for Riverdale as well as Sabrina comic book characters posted this sneak peek with the caption: ‘Something wicked this way comes.’

Against the red background, we can easily distinguish Sabrina’s iconic hairstyle and headband as well her talking cat – Salem!
We hear that the show will be much darker than its original and has been said to be tonally similar to classic horror films such as The Exorcist and Rosemary’s Baby.
The adaptation is more of a coming of age story that finds Sabrina Spellman (played by Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka) struggling with reconciling her dual nature – half witch and half mortal – while fighting against the darkness that threatens her, her family and the world in general.
Sabrina’s boyfriend, Harvey Kinkle, will be played by Ross Lynch, while Jaz Sinclair is going to give life to her BFF, Rosalind Walker.
Last but not least, the iconic aunts Hilda and Zelda Spellman are to be portrayed by Lucy Davis and Miranda Otto.
Lynch previously told ET how this remake is going to be different from the classic Melissa Joan Hart ’90s version.
Apparently, the upcoming Netflix drama will be more ‘based off the newer [comics],’ which are, of course, much darker.
‘There were certain reservations I had to saying yes to the project obviously because there was a lot of music going and ‘Preacher Man’ is exciting and a lot of people are reacting to it. But I truly believe in this project. I had a good feeling about it.’
He went on: ‘I’m happy to say that so far my expectations have been exceeded. Just the aesthetic of everything and the actors that were cast and [Sabrina creator] Roberto [Aguirre-Sacasa] … all the visions are coming together, and they’re effective.’
