On her 16th birthday, Sabrina has to make a choice - the witchy life with her family, or the world of mere mortals with her friends and boyfriend. So says Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) as she tries to come to terms with her half-witch, half-mortal existence.

Riverdale stayed true to its eerie noir roots in Season 2, and Sabrina and her pals in neighboring Greendale got their own Netflix series: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, debuting Friday, Oct. 26 on the streaming service.

"I'm not an evil person, but these are desperate times". But even that's gotten complicated, as her favorite teacher Mary Wardell (Michelle Gomez) is possessed by the Devil's handmaiden and becomes Madame Satan, a vengeful spirit determined to destroy Sabrina and everything she holds dear.

The new series, that comes from the people behind the CW's hit teen drama, Riverdale arrives October 26 on Netflix. The adaptation imagines the adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story. Aguirre-Sacasa executive produces alongside Riverdale collaborators Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater and Lee Toland Krieger.

The footage opens on a shot of the Spellman Mortuary, the home where the "half-breed" Sabrina Spellman (Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka) lives with her aunts Hilda and Zelda (Lucy Davis and Miranda Otto, respectively) and rebellious warlock cousin Ambrose (Chance Perdomo).

We'll be watching when it hits Netflix on October 26th.
