We all remember, back in the early 2000s, settling down on a bean bag in our balconies, early in the evening with a cup of coffee and Archie comics with excerpts of Sabrina’s strips. Ah, good times.
In late October of 2018, brought about from parent Archie comics-inspired show Riverdale, popular online streaming website Netflix brought us the Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina. This adaptation of the “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” tale transformed the little girl’s story into a dark coming-of-age story that opens gates of horror and the occult.
In this reimagined origin story, Sabrina Spellman struggles to reconcile her dual nature – half-witch, half-human- while standing against lurking evil that threatens her, her family, and the world the rest of the mortal humans inhabit.
The show is a dark twist on an otherwise lighthearted show that we didn’t see coming and didn’t know we needed.
The third season of the show dropped on netflix.com in late January of this year, just sometime before the spread of the coronavirus pandemic took over the globe. So how far into round four were they before production was forced to come to a halt? The creators, way back in 2019, decided that the final season of the show would be divided into two halves; the first of which dropped on Netflix in January of 2020. Yes, that means that the upcoming season will be the second part of the third season- and will be the last we will see of the show, as Netflix has made the decision to cancel it.
The episodes are scheduled to drop in late 2020, and it seems this timeline will be met despite the above-mentioned coronavirus pandemic crisis.
