There’s no denying that spooky Netflix reboot – The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina – has become a sensation since its Halloween release. The show, which is adapted from the Archie comic book series, goes in a distinctly different direction than the nineties TV series and the risk has paid off. From its autumnal aesthetic to its characterisation of women to its representation of its LGBT+ characters, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has proved a hit with viewers and critics alike.

Rotten Tomatoes gave Sabrina a 90% approval rate, with the review aggregator’s consensus reading: “Bewitchingly beautiful and wickedly macabre, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina casts an intoxicating spell and provides a perfect showcase for Kiernan Shipka’s magical talents.”

It is no wonder then, that the internet went crazy after the show’s creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa announced that The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina would receive a Christmas Special.

Last night, Aguirre-Sacasa jokingly tweeted:

“Praise Satan! I mean, Praise Santa.”

The special was also confirmed by the series’ official Twitter account. They tweeted a Christmas card of the spell-binding cast, including Sabrina, Harvey, Ambrose, Hilda, Zelda, Prudence, Agatha, Dorcas, Susie and Roz.

Needless to say, Twitter users summoned their very best memes to convey their anticipation, with many calling upon the Dark Lord himself to give them the strength to wait until December.

The once-off Christmas episode, which has been titled ‘A Midwinter’s Tale’ will be available on Netflix from December 14.

The official synopsis for the Sabrina Christmas Special reads:

“In the upcoming episode, the Church of Night, like all covens, celebrates the Winter Solstice – the longest night of the year – when families gather around the Yule Fire to sing pagan carols and tell ghost stories. But the holidays are also a time for guests and visitors – both welcome and unwelcome – you never know what might come down the chimney.”
