The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina receives eerie new poster

A demonic presence haunts Kiernan Shipka in the first official poster for The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

The artwork sees lead character Sabrina celebrate her birthday as a horned demon lingers in the background (see below).

All ten episodes of Netflix’s witchy, Buffy-esque reboot will be released on 26 October.

The highly-anticipated new take on everyone’s favourite Archie Comics witch will include familiar characters – such as Harvey and Salem – but in a brand new setting. Instead of Boston, Massachusetts, Chilling Adventures will be set in Greendale.

American actress Shipka steps into the iconic role of Sabrina Spellman, while Lucy Davis and Miranda Otto play the title character’s aunts, Hilda and Zelda.

Other cast members include Jaz Sinclair (Rosalind Walker), Michelle Gomez (Madam Satan), Chance Perdomo (Ambrose Spellman), Richard Coyle (Father Blackwood), Ross Lynch (Harvey Kinkle) and Tati Gabrielle (Prudence).

Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said: “We’re all such huge fans of Kiernan’s work, that when we started talking about who this new incarnation of Sabrina could be, her name was on everyone’s wish list.

“This is a darker, more macabre version of Sabrina, and we’re incredibly excited for people to see Kiernan make this iconic character her own.”

The most famous TV adaptation of the character – Sabrina the Teenage Witch – originally aired between 1996 to 2003 with Melissa Joan Hart in the titular role.

Jon Goldwater – Archie Comics boss – added: “I am thrilled that Kiernan is playing Sabrina and have no doubt that she will embody the strength, courage and boldness that has made the character a fan favourite.”

After Netflix unveiled the poster, they promised “something witchy coming your way tomorrow”. First trailer? We can’t wait.
