Chilling Adventures of Sabrina put a horrifically wonderful twist on the teenage witch that got everyone talking, and if you’ve already devoured the Netflix Original and can’t wait for more, there’s good news. The streaming service is already working on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2! In fact, we knew there’d be two seasons of Chilling Adventures way back when Netflix first commissioned the series, and this was doubly confirmed by the final title card, which appeared on our screens once we finished the show, saying: “The adventure is over… for now. But Sabrina will return.”
While the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 release date is no doubt a while off, we do actually have some information about what to expect from the second season. The showrunners and cast have spoken in interviews about a very "different direction" for the show in season 2, and based on what we know after seeing the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina ending, there’s plenty we can speculate on as well. So grab your witch’s hat and broom and read on for everything we know about Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 so far, but beware if you’ve not finished the first season yet, as there’s spoilers to follow.
- Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 release date: Halloween 2019 (TBC)
- Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 cast: Kiernan Shipka, Ross Lynch, Lucy Davis, Miranda Otto, Michelle Gomez, Richard Coyle (TBC)
- Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 episodes: 10
- Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 showrunner: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 release date
While both seasons were filmed back-to-back, we don’t yet have an official Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 release date. Having said that, most TV shows release yearly so with the first season hitting Netflix this Halloween, you can expect the second season to appear on the streaming service around the same time next year. Plus, with its spooky storylines and devilish details, Halloween really is the perfect time for the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 release date.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 cast
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 cast list is technically unconfirmed at this point, but suffice to say, Kiernan Shipka will be back as Sabrina Spellman herself. We can also probably say with some confidence that everyone who survived the first season will also return, which includes Ross Lynch as Harvey, Lucy Davis as Hilda, Miranda Otto as Zelda, Chance Perdomo as Ambrose, Jaz Sinclair as Ros, Lachlan Watson as Susie, Tati Gabrielle as Prudence, Michelle Gomez as Madame Satan, Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood, as well as many other supporting characters.
As things stand, those who (probably) won’t be a part of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 cast include Justin Dobies as Tommy (Harvey’s brother) and Bronson Pinchot as Principal Hawthorne as both characters met their end in season 1. Having said that, don’t rule them out completely. This is a show, after all, that deals in resurrections, ghosts, and other supernatural beings on a semi-regular basis, so there’s no saying both Dobies and Pinchot won’t turn up in season 2 in some capacity or other. Personally, I’d be very surprised if Tommy doesn’t come back to haunt Harvey either physically or metaphorically.
No doubt we’ll also get some new Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 cast members as well. Nothing has been announced so far, but I think it’s likely that Baxter High will be getting a new principal either way. Watch this space.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 episodes
Just like the first season there’ll be ten Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 episodes to sink your teeth into once the second season finally hits Netflix. While this is generally a lot less than most American TV shows - not to mention Netflix’s own slightly bloated Marvel series - fans will no doubt be pleased with the number of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 episodes, not least, because the first season was so well balanced. What the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 episodes will be called will also give us some hints as to what to expect from the second season, but, knowing this, it will be a while before Netflix clues us in on the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 episode titles.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 trailer
Don’t hold your breath for the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 trailer. While there’s plenty of footage for Netflix to choose from with filming already underway, it’s likely that the streaming service will want to wait as long as possible before giving us our first glimpse at the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 trailer. After all, the first season has only been out for a couple of weeks, and while hardcore fans are probably on their second rewatch, the rest of the world is still working their way through the series. We definitely won’t see anything of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 trailer this year, but maybe, if we’re lucky, Netflix will offer up a New Year teaser. Praise Satan!
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 plot
What will Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 be about? This is the BIG question fans will be wondering after seeing the first season. Has Sabrina abandoned Baxter High and her friends for good? Is she even more powerful than she was before? And seriously, what does the Devil want with her - because it’s obviously nothing good! We’ve discuss all this and more in our endings feature (which I’ve linked to in the intro about), but the biggest hint we have yet as to what’s in store for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 comes from Sabrina herself.
Shipka spoke to BloodyDisgusting just before the first season aired and she had this to say: “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. 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.”
Considering the first season of Chilling Adventures feels very different from anything else on television right now, the fact that the second season seems to mix things up even more is intriguing. But that’s not all Shipka had to say… “I would just say that, without giving too much away, because it would be a bit of a spoiler, the way that Sabrina’s life takes certain turns and certain decisions she makes inform the second season,” she added. “The finale of the first season sets up a lot. It goes in a different direction. We see more different characters. It deals with a different side of things.”
If you’ve finished Chilling Adventures - and you really should have if you’ve already read this far - it’s clear what Shipka is hinting at. Her comments seem to suggest that Sabrina will be staying at the Academy of Unseen Arts with her new witchy friends for the majority of season 2 and meeting new magical-inclined characters. While that’s no bad thing - some of the best moments of the first season come when magic is at play - what about poor Harvey, Ros, and Susie? Will they ever see their beloved Brina again?
