Something wicked is finally here.

The teaser for Netflix’s “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” was released on Thursday, giving fans their first real look at “Mad Men” alum Kiernan Shipka in the titular role. The series, which is based on the comics series by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, will debut on Oct. 26, just in time for Halloween, the streaming service previously announced.

In the roughly 1-minute clip, it’s Sabrina’s 16th birthday — but it doesn’t look like a happy one. Well, at least not by normal standards. But if you are into Satanic rituals and haunting renditions of “Happy Birthday” than this will totally be your idea of a Sweet Sixteen.

The show’s official Twitter account teased “something witchy” on Wednesday with a new poster for the series:

Aguirre-Sacasa has been leaving fans little crumbs throughout the production process, previously sharing the first teaser, and a photo at the table read for Episode 9 that included Ross Lynch, who plays Sabrina’s boyfriend Harvey, and co-star Chance Perdomo, who plays Sabrina’s cousin Ambrose.

He also previously shared a photo of Lynch and Shipka on set as the teen couple, and of course, before that, a photo of Salem himself.

“Chilling Adventures” stars Shipka, Lynch, and Perdomo along with Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood, Lucy Davis as Aunt Hilda, Miranda Otto as Aunt Zelda, Tati Gabrielle as Prudence and Michelle Gomez as Mary Wardell. Aguirre-Sacasa executive produces the Warner Bros. Television production, along with Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter of Berlanti Productions, Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater and director Lee Toland Krieger.
