Robert Aguirre-Sacasa Confirms Sabrina’s Journey to Hell for season 3
The second season of Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina saw Sabrina revealing her plan to rescue her boyfriend Nick in hell, a path not yet taken in the series. Speaking at TCA (via The Wrap), creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has confirmed that the upcoming third season will indeed be bringing Sabrina Spellman and her mortal friends to the scary and dangerous realm of hell.
“I think it’s safe to say that we are going to Hell, yes. We’re going to Hell. It’s very fun. It’s very fun. It’s dangerous, but it’s really fun.” Aguirre-Sacasa said.
In addition, he also revealed that there is still no planned release date for season three and it might not premiere in time for Halloween.
“I don’t actually know [when Season 3 will premiere]. I don’t think we’d be ready for Halloween. I have no idea, not a clue. We are writing Episode 8, we are starting to shoot Episode 6, so we’re nearing the halfway mark. And that’s been going great. I’m really proud of those episodes. They’re really, really fun.”
The series, which stars Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men) in the titular role, was ordered to series by Netflix after initial development began at The CW in a two-season deal, with an agreement set to film both seasons back-to-back. The first season premiered on the streaming service on October 26 to rave reviews from critics and audiences for its dark visuals, creepy tone, and Shipka’s lead performance.
Shipka is joined by Lucy Davis (Wonder Woman) as Hilda Spellman, Miranda Otto (Annabelle: Creation) as Zelda Spellman, Chance Perdomo, Michelle Gomez (Doctor Who) as Mary Wardell, Chance Perdomo as Ambrose Spellman, Jaz Sinclair, Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood, Tati Gabrielle as Prudence, Ross Lynch as Harvey Kinkle and Bronson Pinchot in the cast.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Riverdale) is writing the adaptation (the comic book basis for which he also wrote) and will executive produce. Lee Toland Krieger will direct and executive produce with Aguirre-Sacasa, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Jon Goldwater. The drama hails from the Warner Bros. Television-based Berlanti Productions.
Parts 1 and 2 of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina are streaming now on Netflix.
