'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' definitely isn't a light-hearted cartoon.

If you're so hooked on Riverdale that one show isn't enough of a fix, you're in luck. Netflix has announced that its spin-off show Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will debut on October 26th -- just before Halloween, and conveniently two weeks after Riverdale's season 3 premiere. There's no footage to show yet, but Kiernan Shipka (Sally Draper on Mad Men) is playing the titular role, with creatives from Riverdale (including showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacassa) giving the show a familiar feel.

As the name implies, this is the polar opposite of the '90s series. Here, Sabrina is grappling with her half-witch nature as she deals with both supernatural threats and the realities of her everyday life. You likely won't see crossover moments thanks to network complexities (Riverdale is a CW show, Sabrina is Netflix-only), but this might scratch the itch if you've wanted to visit the darkest corner of the reinterpreted Archie Comics universe.
