The teaser clip shows flashing images of the occult, original drawings from the comics, Salem’s eyes and other creepy scenes that give a taste for the overall vibe of the show.

“Join the coven,” the video urges. “We’re waiting for you.”

Aguirre-Sacasa has also announced that the @sabrinanetflix account is “up and running” so be sure to keep up with the show’s latest updates!

The reboot was originally intended to be a companion series to CW’s mega-hit show Riverdale, but as we now know, the Sabrina remake found its home with Netflix. As reported by Variety, the show will be an hour long, 20-episode, two-season series on Netflix.

While it won’t be a companion series to Riverdale, it will have the people behind the hit show working on it. The production team for Riverdale will be working on the reboot, along with Aguirre-Sacasa, who’s Archie Comics’ chief creative officer and Riverdale showrunner.

The series will be based off Archie Comics’ Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina and will take on a much darker tone than the upbeat ’90s show that we have come to know and love. According to Nerdist, the show will touch on more darker themes, giving a reimagined look into Sabrina’s occult origins, by saying the series “finds Sabrina struggling to reconcile her dual nature (being half-witch and half-mortal) while protecting her family and the world from the forces of evil.”
