Are you ready, witches? Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina returns to Netflix on Friday, Apr. 5, and according to a new teaser trailer, Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) is embracing her darkside. When last we saw Sabrina, her family and her friends, it was in the Midwinter’s Tale solstice special — and she had barely dipped her toes into being a full witch. When Sabrina signed her name in the Book of the Beast, it was so she could save Greendale.
In the part two teaser trailer, she seems to be embracing her dark side. NME debuted the new trailer on Sunday, which is a montage of new scenes set to the song “Cherry Bomb,” because of course. The outlet also revealed exclusive first-look pictures at the new episodes.
We can only speculate how things will progress for Sabrina in season one, part two, but one thing is for sure: it’s going to be dramatic as Hell. We mean that literally. Sabrina signed the Book of the Beast and became a full witch, so she’s spending more time with other witches and interacting with Satan himself. But she’s also dealing with drama of the mortal kind: do we spy not one, but two potential love triangles brewing?
The teaser also calls back to the ’90s sitcom Sabrina the Teenage Witch. At the start of every episode, Melissa Joan Hart’s iteration of the character would magically change her clothes in front of the mirror, then say something quippy. In the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina part two teaser, Shipka’s Sabrina does the same. It’s kind of great.
Check out the preview photos from NME below and be sure to watch on Apr. 5 when Chilling Adventures of Sabrina returns.
