AceShowbiz - It's still one month away until Kiernan Shipka's Sabrina Spellman starts casting spells on "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina". In an attempt to hype up the upcoming series, Netflix has unearthed a slew of new photos featuring a better look at the characters of the darker take on "Sabrina the Teenage Witch".
One of the photos sees Sabrina, the teenage witch, being surrounded by her school friends. Fans also get a better look at Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch), the boyfriend of Sabrina. The character is dubbed "the Prince Charming of this dark fairy tale" on the show's official Twitter account.

Also featured in the new photos are Sabrina's sterner aunt Zelda Spellman (Miranda Otto) and Sabrina's more motherly aunt Hilda Spellman (Lucy Davis). Harvey's potential rival Nicholas Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood) is also featured looking stern as ever. He's described as a warlock who is drawn to Sabrina.
Meanwhile, The Weird Sisters, the witches at Academy of Unseen Arts, are seen gathering in a dark forest. They are made of Agatha (Adeline Rudolph), Prudence (Tati Gabrielle) and Dorcas (Abigail Cowen). Father Blackwood (Richard Coyle), who was previously seen performing dark baptism to Sabrina, is seen talking something to the latter. He is the high priest of the Church of Night.
Another photo features Sabrina's friends Rosalind (Jaz Sinclair) and Susie (Lachlan Watson). According to E! News, they're all in the process of starting the cheekily named WICCA club.

Based on the comic book of the same name, "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" follows adventures of Sabrina Spellman as she navigates her way through life as a young witch. The series is a depicted as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. Tonally in the vein of "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Exorcist", this adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature--half-witch, half-mortal--while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.
Created and executive produced by "Riverdale" showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" will premiere on October 26 on Netflix.
