When we last left Greendale, sweet warlock Nick Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood) had been possessed by Lucifer and dragged to Hell and his now-official girlfriend, Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka), enlisted her mortal (… well, not-so-mortal) BFFs to help her get him back. The last batch of episodes arrived in April, and now fans should be thrilled that the wait for the next set won’t even take a year. Netflix has released a short teaser revealing that ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ will be back in January!
Netflix is shirking the traditional “season” release schedule. Ten episodes were released in October 2018, followed by a holiday special. And as stated, a second batch of nine episodes was released in April. That brings the total to 20, but according to Netflix, that’s all Season 1.
There will be eight episodes released in January, with eight more following at an undisclosed time. That comes to 16 episodes for Season 2. Does that mean that there will be four more episodes released after that? Or will Season 2 just be shorter? The show has proven popular, at least when it first launched. (Netflix doesn’t release streaming numbers.) Has it cooled? Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
If that wasn’t hard enough to understand, these next episodes are labeled as “Part Three” in this official synopsis:
Part Three finds Sabrina reeling from the harrowing events of Part Two. Though she defeated her father Lucifer, the Dark Lord remains trapped within the human prison of her beloved boyfriend, Nicholas Scratch. Sabrina can’t live with herself, knowing that Nick made the ultimate sacrifice and is suffering, burning in Hell under Madam Satan’s watchful eye. So with an assist from her mortal friends, “The Fright Club” (consisting of Harvey, Rosalind, and Theo), Sabrina makes it her mission to free him from eternal damnation and bring him back into her arms. However, the Dark Lord’s unseating has sent shockwaves through the realms—and, with no one on the throne, Sabrina must assume the title of “Queen” to defend it against a challenger, the handsome Prince of Hell Caliban. Meanwhile, in Greendale, a mysterious carnival rolls into town, bringing with it a threat to the Spellmans and the coven: A tribe of pagans looking to resurrect an ancient evil…
‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ returns on January 24, 2020.
