Netflix releases the first teaser trailer for The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 2. The teaser highlights a release date of April 5, 2019 for the continuation of the series. Season 1 is currently available to stream on Netflix so there is plenty of time to catch up before the release of Part 2.
The Netflix original based on the Archie Comic explores an alternate Sabrina: The Teenage Witch grounded in horror, witchcraft, and cults. Season 1 follows Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka), a 16-year-old girl who is destined to join the satanic cult, The Church of The Night and is torn between the supernatural world of her family resides in and the normal world of her friends. Premiering just in time for Halloween, the success of the series comes as no surprise since it's closely related to - and could even crossover with - the CW's popular Archie Comics series, Riverdale.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2 has recently cast Alexis Denisof (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) as Adam Masters, the boyfriend of Ms. Wardell, who has been gone from Greendale for quite some time. Also joining the series is Jedidah Goodcare (Descendants) as a mysterious club owner in the town. Check out the teaser for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2, below.
The teaser welcomes fans back to Greendale for more magic and teases Sabrina joining the Dark Lord. This goat like figure is the physical embodiment of Satan in the series. Serving as the main antagonist, this entity is the unholy figure worshiped by the witches in Greendale. The teaser also hints at references to the role Melissa Joan Hart portrayed, and romance sparks for Sabrina. Part 2 will be an episode short of the 10 episode format from before, but the nine episode format should work just fine. It will be interesting to see how the series will further develop the relationship between Satan and Sabrina now that she has signed the book.
Details about the show's continuation have been released for months, before the series premiered. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2 began filming even before the series released on Netflix in October. At that time, Kiernan Shipka spoke with Bloody Disgusting about how different Part 2 will be:
“We went straight into the second season from the first and it’s been really so exceptionally fun to film, especially given the fact that I feel like we’re already in such a rhythm from coming out of the first season that to jump right into the second one was really, really fun and just a great opportunity to keep the momentum going. We definitely… Sabrina definitely changes and shifts a lot. Her growth is very evident and the second season definitely has a different spin on it than the first season. They’re very different from each other.”
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2 seems to be offering up loads of surprises. Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer can look forward to seeing how Alexis Denisof will add to the show's narrative. The series is nothing like the original light-hearted sitcom - this adaptation is an unforgiving, dark tale about witchcraft, and an alternate coming of age story for Ms. Sabrina Spellman. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will return to Netflix Part 2 on April 5, 2019, but before that, don't miss the series' holiday special, "A Midwinter's Tale", on December 14th.
