Has Netflix come to save the world or what? It just keeps getting better. And while we were left speechless by the first season of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Netflix has dropped the bomb on us. It’s out that the half-witch will be fighting evil forces for two more seasons. Now that’s something to look forward to.
So who Sabrina Spellman really is?
Set in the fictional town of Greendale, the show is about Sabrina Spellman, a teenage half-witch, half-mortal forced to choose between the mortal and the magic world. Raised by her two aunts, Hilda and Zelda, she is firm on establishing her own path and our girl ain’t afraid of no one. On her sixteenth birthday, which is her dark baptism, she was supposed to devote herself to the dark lord, Satan. However, as fate would have it, she defies him and refuses to sign her name away to him. Now that’s a pretty ballsy yet risky move. Part I of the show revolves around the consequences of this. There show demonstrates everything that’s evil. Exorcism, witch-hunting, familiars, Wiccan holiday celebrations, et al.
Netflix fanbase growing
Ever since Netflix has begun filming its own content, its fanbase has grown tremendously. Sure, it’s landed itself in billions of debt, but that story is for another day. Be it House of Cards, Ghoul, 13 Reasons Why, or Narcos, Netflix has made this game their very own. It went deeper into issues that most mainstream movie makers choose to ignore. Instead of whitewashing the characters and getting straight people to play LGBT characters, Netflix has stayed true to the spirit and has a lot of queer population directing, producing, and acting in these shows.
Kiernan shares the news
If you’re thinking it all this sounds familiar, you’re right. This is the same Archie comic’s Sabrina – The teenage witch. Netflix has stayed true to the representation of the comic and has recreated most aspects in a very chilling and engaging way. Kiernan Shipka who plays the lead role recently shared a post on her instagram handle sharing news of wrapping up the second season.
However, in an earlier post too, Kiernan had taken to instagram to showcase how much she loved playing the half-witch and how she can’t wait to begin shooting for the next season.
Season 2 spoilers
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the executive producer of the show took to Twitter recently to announce the date for the second season. News on the micro-blogging site went viral and sent fans in a tizzy.
Roberto was also all praise for the production partners as well as the series lead Kiernan.
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
He had also tweeted a Christmas special spoiler in early November through his handle. Now that’s what we call total involvement.
And speaking of Kiernan, you might know her as Sally Draper from The Madman and she’s killing it on the show. Other supporting characters are played by Miranda Otto (Aunt Zelda), Lucy Davis(Aunt Hilda), Chance Perdomo (Ambrose Spellman), Harvey Kinkle (Ross Lynch), Jaz Sinclair (Roz Walker), Michelle Gomez (Mary Wardwell/Madame Satan), Tati Gabrielle (Prudence Night) and Richard Coyle (Father Fastaus Blackwood).
Well, we sure can’t wait for this to come out.
