Chilling Adventures of Sabrina casting spells into season 2


Great news for fans of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina — Netflix has renewed the series for a second season.

Season 2 of the reboot of Sabrina, starring Kiernan Shipka in the title role, will consist of 16 more episodes that will be released in two installments as Parts 3 and 4, according to TVLine. Those episodes will be filmed in 2019.

Roberto Aquirre-Saccasa, the creator of the series, was thrilled by the good news, saying,

"Praise Satan! I’m so grateful to my partners at Warner Brothers, Netflix, Berlanti Television and Archie Productions for supporting this darker vision of the world’s most famous teen witch. And I’m thrilled to be continuing to tell Sabrina’s chilling adventures with our incredible cast and crew, led by the unstoppable Kiernan Shipka."

The first part of Season 1, including the recently released holiday special, “A Midwinter’s Tale,” is currently available on Netflix.

Those 11 episodes will be joined by 9 more when Season 1, Part 2 premieres on Friday, April 5 on the streaming service. A trailer for Part 2 has already been released.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has presented a darker and much more serious version of the teenage witch than the one seen on the 1990s sitcom Sabrina, The Teenage Witch. The Netflix series has grappled with difficult topics including belief, family, and destiny, and has featured a strong performance from its ensemble cast.

Instead of its comedic predecessor, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is much more akin to Riverdale, currently airing on the CW, which was also ushered to the screen by Aguirre-Sacasa. That show features a dark and twisty vision of the Archie comics.

Clearly, that approach has been a winner for both Riverdale and Sabrina, as both shows are doing well on their respective platforms. Netflix doesn’t release viewer ratings information, but its renewal of Sabrina signals the series has done well so far and the streamer is confident this will continue into the future.
