Under the multiple-year deal, Rhimes and her Shondaland banner will create and produce new projects for the streaming giant. Rhimes’ longtime producing partner Betsy Beers will continue to head Shondaland in the move to Netflix. Under what is said to be a rich four-year pact, Rhimes is expected to score a percentage of the backend on programming she creates for Netflix.

“Shonda Rhimes is one of the greatest storytellers in the history of television,” Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said. “Her work is gripping, inventive, pulse-pounding, heart-stopping, taboo-breaking television at its best. I’ve gotten the chance to know Shonda and she’s a true Netflixer at heart — she loves TV and films, she cares passionately about her work, and she delivers for her audience.

If you’re a fan of the sitcom Sabrina the Teenage Witch…Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina may not be for you.

The first trailer for this dark take on the powerful teen (from the makers of Riverdale) promises creepy woods, minotaurs, the occult, and a terrifying cover of “Happy Birthday.” And it’s just a teaser!

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina stars Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men), whose half-human half-witch identity clashes along with the magical and mortal worlds. A far cry from its ’90s cousin, Netflix describes CAOS as “tonally in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist.” So…no animatronic cat?

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina hits Netflix Oct. 26.
