With both seasons of Chilling Adventures filmed back-to-back, we knew the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 release date couldn't be too far off, but even we couldn't have predicated an early 2019 air date! 

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 release date was revealed with the first teaser trailer (more on that below) and will see Part 2 hit the streaming service on April 5, 2019, which means we have a mere few weeks until the teenage witch returns to our TV screens. 

In case you've forgotten, the first season debuted on Netflix on October 26, 2018 and then we got the Christmas special, A Midwinter’s Tale, on December 14, 2019, so your witchy withdrawals can't be that bad, right?

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 trailer

Unbelievably, we actually got the first Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 trailer (above) not long after the first season hit the streaming service. While it doesn't give much away in terms of the plot (well, we wouldn't want it to, would we?) it does tease what life looks like for the teenage witch now she's fully embraced her witchy half.

We've since had a second, longer Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 trailer (above), which doubles down on a much darker Sabrina. As well as some gruesome-looking shots of bloody rites, the trailer hints at the love triangle between Sabrina, Harvey, and Nicholas going into overdrive in season 2. Oh, and did we all take note of Sabrina's enhanced powers in the footage too? Mortals beware!

There's also this oh-so-cool Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 poster to go along with the new trailer:

It goes without saying that the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 cast list will include everyone who made it through the first season, including Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina herself, 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, Adeline Rudolph as Agatha, Abigail Cowen as Dorcas, Gavin Leatherwood as Nicholas, Michelle Gomez as Madame Satan, and Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood.

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.

Now onto the really juicy bit; the new Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 2 cast members! Mckenna Grace played young Sabrina in the Christmas special but it's unclear if she'll be back for the second season. 

Alexis Denisof (of Buffy and Angel fame) is playing Mary Wardwell’s boyfriend, Adam Masters. His character description reads: "Handsome and charming, Adam returns to Greendale after a stint overseas working with Physicians Without Frontiers - unaware that his fiancé has been taken over by the demoness Madam Satan." Oh dear... 

Jedidiah Goodacre has also signed on in the more mythical role of Dorian Gray. A warlock and the owner of exclusive nightclub Dorian’s Gray Room, this "enigmatic gentleman of an indeterminate age is very good at keeping secrets, especially his own - a cursed portrait he hides from prying eyes," reads the character description.

But there's someone else we need to talk about... whoever is playing The Dark Lord, Lucifer, the Devil himself! The character appears at the end of the second trailer above, and despite Netflix trying to keep details under wraps, the Express is reporting that he's played by Australian actor Luke Cook. As of writing, this is unconfirmed by Netflix and the actor's IMBd doesn't list Chilling Adventures, but you just have to look at pictures of the actor to see that it's him.

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.

The official synopsis for the Chilling Adventure of Sabrina season 2 plot reads: "Part 2 finds Sabrina exploring her darker side, curious to learn more about her heritage, while struggling to maintain her friendships in the mortal world. Romantically, Sabrina is caught in an unholy love triangle with between sexy warlock Nicholas Scratch and salt-of-the-Earth mortal Harvey Kinkle. Meanwhile, The Dark Lord, Madame Satan, and Father Blackwood continue to conjure chaos in the Spellman household and the town of Greendale. And they aren’t the only ones trying to raise hell. Everything is in question… relationships, identity, true intentions… when the devil’s work is at hand."

It definitely sounds like Sabrina is going to have her hands full, but she's also going to be having fun with her dark side as Shipka tells BloodyDisgusting just before the first season aired: “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?
