Get ready for some news that's going to make your head spin. We've seen some photos from the upcoming Netflix show The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, but now we know a few more details about what we can expect in Season 1. And it turns out fans of The Exorcist have a reason to get excited.

We don't know much yet about The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina other than it will take place shortly after Sabrina's 16th birthday and involve her struggle with both her human and witch sides. What we do know so far sounds like a delight for genre fans. Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa recently told EW that in the first season Sabrina will be "the heroine in this series of mini-movies.”

Of course, this news immediately has us wondering just which movies she'll be starring in. Luckily, Aguirre-Sacasa went ahead and revealed one of the influences for an episode in the first season: The Exorcist.

“I love The Exorcist. It’s one of my favorite movies,” he said. “We’re doing an homage to that; we’re doing an episode that’s like [The Exorcist].”

Of course, who knows exactly how the influence of The Exorcism will appear in the episode, but Aguirre-Sacasa is no stranger to using horror movie influences in his shows. The first two seasons of Riverdale paid homage to Carrie in an episode and were clearly influenced by the horror genre in general.

Let's hope Sabrina is able to exorcise any demons she encounters when Season 1 lands on Netflix October 26.
