Netflix Releases Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter's Tale Trailer

Netflix has just released the official trailer for the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter's Tale Christmas special, which will make its debut on 14th December.

If the 60-second trailer is anything to go by, the festive special will follow the magical madness seen in the first season.

We see Aunt Zelda (Miranda Otto) lighting a yule log in a bid to keep Christmas ghouls from climbing down the chimney, Santa throwing a bag over Sabrina's head and some terrifying pale-faced, dead-looking creature is stalking Ambrose Spellman (Chance Perdomo), so it looks like we're in for a load of festive cheer...

The first season of the Sabrina reboot, based on the Archie comic series, has proven to be one of the biggest Netflix original successes in years.

According to Forbes: "It gets the horror. It gets the supernatural. It gets the precise lack of subtlety needed to pull off such a series. it gets it all. The show is a solid entry to the genre TV slate and one that could very well go down as the top Archie Comics adaptation to date in years to come."

The series follows Sabrina, who is struggling to choose whether she should succumb to her sorcery and live life as a full witch, or pursue a mortal life with boyfriend Harvey.

Of course, it can't be too straight forward as while she takes her time to decide, the evil Madam Satan returns from Hell to seek revenge on the Spellman family.

Radio Times compared the series to Buffy The Vampire Slayer and we are definitely happy with that.

The publication wrote: "The exceedingly talented Kiernan Shipka has the on-screen presence to become a genuine icon as the righteous and principled half-witch Sabrina Spellman. On this evidence, she more than measures up to Sarah Michelle Gellar's ass-kicking vampire hunter.

"Like Buffy, Sabrina is the odd one out among her friends, with a toe in the supernatural world, but a group of normies around her keeping her grounded.

"However, while Buffy was outed as a slayer early on, Sabrina is intent on keeping her secret guarded. You know, to avoid a witch hunt."

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter's Tale premiers worldwide on 14th December.
