"It's time to light the yule log. Otherwise who knows what might come down our chimney." Before the second season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina premieres on April 5th, Netflix will give viewers the gift of the holiday special A Midwinter's Tale on December 14th, and the official trailer for the seasonal treat promises plenty of holiday horrors both in and out of the Spellman home.

You can unwrap the trailer for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter's Tale below, which was released with the following caption:

"In Greendale, the Holidays can be such a witch.

Séances, evil Santas, spellcasting, and of course, Sabrina. Join the Spellmans, Sabrina's mortal besties, and the Church of Night for a solstice celebration in A Midwinter's Tale, premiering December 14 only on Netflix."

As previously reported by multiple outlets, including Entertainment Weekly, Mckenna Grace (The Haunting of Hill House, I, TonyaCaptain Marvel, the third Annabelle film) will play a young Sabrina Spellman in the show's holiday special, which premieres December 14th on Netflix. According to EW, Netflix shared the following statement regarding young Sabrina's story:

“During our holiday special, we’ll get to see what Sabrina was like as a precocious tot. And while The Church of Night celebrates the Solstice, that doesn’t stop Li’l Sabrina from asking Santa for something special.”

Beyond the holiday special, season 2 will continue storylines from the first season while also introducing new characters, as Entertainment Weekly previously revealed two new faces that will be joining the cast as recurring guest stars in the second season. First up is Alexis Denisof (known by many as Wesley Wyndam-Pryce in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel), who will portray Adam Masters, the unsuspecting boyfriend of Mary Wardwell (Michelle Gomez): "Handsome and charming, Adam returns to Greendale after a stint overseas working with Physicians Without Frontiers—unaware that his fiancé has been taken over by the demoness Madam Satan.”

Oscar Wilde fans take note, because second up is Jedidiah Goodacre (The Originals), who will play Dorian Gray, "the owner of an exclusive nightclub called Dorian’s Gray Room." Dorian will be portrayed as an “enigmatic gentleman of an indeterminate age,” one who is “very good at keeping secrets, especially his own—a cursed portrait he hides from prying eyes” (via EW).
