Our first look at the Sabrina the Teenage Witch reboot has been released! After months and months of teasers (and pics of Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina Spellman and Ross Lynch as her boyfriend Harvey Kinkle on set), we’ve finally got our first official look at The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Netflix shared the image on Instagram, which shows the outline of Sabrina – sporting her infamous bob and headband — along with Salem, her talking black cat.

“Something wicked is coming….” the network wrote alongside the pic.

Back in February, creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa also shared a picture of the beloved cat, writing “Ladies and gentlemen, meet #Greendale’s latest resident. All hail, Salem!”

Based on the comic book series of the same name, Netflix describes the reboot as a reimagining of the original Sabrina the Teenage Witch we grew up watching on TV. It’s a “dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft.” The show will revolve around “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.” It’s safe to say the reboot will be hella dark. After all, Roberto did take inspiration from Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina also stars Lucy Davis as Aunt Hilda, Miranda Otto as Aunt Zelda, Jaz Sinclair as Sabrina’s BFF Rosalind, Tati Gabrielle as her adversary Prudence, Chance Perdomo as her British cousin Ambrose, Bronson Pinchot as the villainous school principal George Hawthorne and Michelle Gomez as Sabrina’s possessed teacher Mary Wardell.

It also appears as though Sabrina will have not one, but two love interests. You know, the kind of stuff we expect from a teen drama! Though it hasn’t been officially announced by RAS or Netflix, actor Gavin Leatherwood has joined the cast to play Nicholas Scratch, “a young and handsome warlock at the Academy of Unseen Arts who befriends Sabrina when she’s a new student,” according to Buzzfeed. Apparently, Nicholas is very drawn to Sabrina and there are immediate sparks between them…

Gavin recently appeared in a photo of the show’s episode 9 table read, so perhaps that’s around the time his character will make an appearance! We’ll have to wait to find out.

Netflix also has yet to reveal the show’s official premiere date, but Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is expected to have a 10-episode first season sometime in 2018! It’s already been renewed for a second season and is shooting both season 1 and season 2 back to back. In the meantime, that means we’ll possibly be getting our first look at a trailer very soon! *Fingers crossed*
