Netflix Casts A Vanishing Spell On ‘Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina’ After Two Seasons

A show that I only discovered about a year ago and quickly fell in love with just got the ax over at Netflix. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which stars Kiernan Shipka as the Archieverse’s resident teenage wiccan/Queen of Hell, has been canceled after two seasons, which were broken up into four total chapters. But for fans of the show, this isn’t quite the end yet.

The final 8 episodes of season 2 are expected to arrive later this year, which will complete its total run of 36 episodes. Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa had this to say…

“Working on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been an incredible honor from Day One. The cast, beginning with Kiernan as everyone’s favorite teen witch, has been an absolute joy. I am beyond thankful to the crew, writers, editors, assistants, and everyone for pouring so much love into this dark dream of a show. I’m also grateful to our partners at Netflix, Warner Bros., Berlanti Television and Archie Comics for letting us tell the story we wanted to tell, the way we wanted to tell it. We can’t wait for everyone to see Part Four.”

As for how Aguirre-Sacasa plans to wrap up the story of the Spellmans? A final battle with the Eldritch Terrors to save the town of Greendale and possibly the world. What else?

SYNOPSIS: “The Eldritch Terrors will descend upon Greendale. The coven must fight each terrifying threat one-by-one (The Weird, The Returned, The Darkness to name a few), all leading up to…The Void, which is the End of All Things. As the witches wage war, with the help of The Fright Club, Nick begins to slowly earn his way back into Sabrina’s heart, but will it be too late?”

To be honest, the most recent chapter took a big step backwards, but remained a show I binged through pretty quick.  I’m sad to see it go.
