Something wicked this way comes: Netflix has finally revealed the premiere date for “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” making Halloween 2018 a little bit spookier.

The highly anticipated Archie Comics adaptation will hit the streaming platform on Friday, Oct. 26.

Netflix has been coy in rolling out the series, dropping small teases throughout the production process. Those nuggets include a short teaser, as well as set photos showcasing stars Kiernan Shipka and Ross Lynch.

Starring Shipka as the titular witch,”The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” is a new take on the classic “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” comicbook series re-imagined as a dark coming-of-age story tonally in the vein of “Rosemary’s Baby” and “The Exorcist.”

The new series finds Sabrina (Shipka) 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.

The series also stars Lynch as Sabrina’s boyfriend Harvey, Chance Perdomo as her cousin Ambrose, 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.

“Riverdale” showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who also serves as chief creative officer of Archie Comics, penned the script for the series and serves as executive producer along with his “Riverdale” collaborators Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater and Lee Toland Krieger.

The drama hails from Warner Bros. Television-based Berlanti Productions.
