If you've read the Lovecraftian, darkly humorous, and autumnally atmospheric comic book series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, then there's a good chance that you want to cast a spell on your clock to speed up the arrival of the Netflix series adaptation (starring Kiernan Shipka in the lead role). While we can't make October 26th get here any quicker, we now have a look at the show's first teaser trailer.

As mentioned, the new Sabrina TV series is based on Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's comic book series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which features chillingly atmospheric artwork by Robert Hack.

Aguirre-Sacasa, who developed The CW's Riverdale TV series, writes and executive produces the series, with Lee Toland Krieger (Riverdale) on board as a director and executive producer. Also executive producing the new series are Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater, all of whom executive produce Riverdale.

"The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina tells the story of Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka), a half-witch half-mortal teenage girl. She’s been waiting her whole life for her 16th birthday, but something wicked this way comes, forcing her to choose between the path of light and the path of night.

Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who also serves as chief creative officer of Archie Comics, penned the script for the series. Aguirre-Sacasa executive produces alongside Riverdale collaborators Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater and Lee Toland Krieger. The drama hails from Warner Bros. Television-based Berlanti Productions. Cast includes: Kiernan Shipka, Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis, Ross Lynch, Michelle Gomez, Chance Perdomo, Jaz Sinclair, Richard Coyle, Tati Gabrielle, Adeline Rudolph, Abigail Cowen, Lachlan Watson and Bronson Pinchot."
