Netflix has released the trailer for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter's Tale and it looks like Christmas is going to be pretty creepy this year. The latest trailer for the holiday special comes just days after fans were treated to a Season 2 teaser, which announced that the series is returning in April of next year. The April release date came as a nice surprise for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina followers, and the holiday special will be a tasty treat for some of the more impatient fans.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter's Tale trailer teases The Church of Night's Winter Solstice celebration. It also happens to be the longest night of the year, when families gather around the Yule Fire to sing pagan carols and tell ghost stories. But the holidays are also a time for guests and visitors, both welcome and unwelcome. From the looks of things, there seems to be a lot of unwelcome guests for this specific holiday special, which is definitely a good thing.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter's Tale trailer features wooden dolls that magically come to life, a few ghosts, some black demons, and a creepy Santa, who tries to kidnap someone instead of dropping off toys for children. Much like the Season 2 teaser that was recently released, Sabrina Spellman is getting into her darker wardrobe, embracing the color black. It's unclear if the Sabrina holiday special will serve as a bridge between Season 1 and 2, but that would make a lot of sense, especially considering its release date.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a darker coming-of-age story that channels horror, the occult and witchcraft. The series has been compared to the tones of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist, and this adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature, which is half-witch, and half-mortal, while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family, and the daylight world humans inhabit. By the looks of the holiday special, Sabrina is going to have to step up her game because those evil forces are coming out in full force, threatening the young witch and everybody around her.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter's Tale debuts December 14, exclusively on Netflix. As for Season 2 of the popular new series, it will arrive some time in April. No specific date has been revealed at this time. However, that is a much shorter wait than many had anticipated, so not having the concrete date isn't that big of a deal at this time. For now, it's time to shift focus to the Winter Solstice and the evil that threatens on the longest night of the year.
