Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was witchier than ever in its second season, which started streaming on Netflix in April. Over the course of the nine episodes, we see Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) battle everything from a plague demon to Satan himself, all while trying to makes time for her mortal friends as her involvement in the Academy of the Unseen Arts grows larger (and darker).
There's also the love triangle between her and high school sweetheart Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch) and warlock love interest Nicholas Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood). In short: everyone's favourite bleach-blonde witch deals with a LOT in season two. Given how the second season wraps up, though — with an emotional cliffhanger — it made us wonder: will Chilling of Adventures of Sabrina be back for season three?
Thanks to Netflix, yes — it's definitely returning for a third outing! The show was actually renewed for both seasons three and four back in December, making it clear that the series has cast a spell not only on audiences but on Netflix executives as well. The streaming platform announced that the dark teen drama was renewed for 16 more episodes, which will be split between the next two seasons (officially called "parts three and four").
Series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa recently spilled even more about the upcoming season with The Wrap during the Television Critics Association press tour and confirmed that, yes, Sabrina will be taking a trip to the Underworld.
"I think it's safe to say that we are going to Hell, yes," he said. "We're going to Hell. It's very fun. It's very fun. It's dangerous, but it's really fun."
There's still no official premiere date for season three, but unfortunately, it sounds like it won't be ready by October like season one was last year. "I don't actually know. I don't think we'd be ready for Halloween. I have no idea, not a clue," Aguirre-Sacasa admitted. You know what they say — you can't rush wicked perfection!
