Netflix Cancels Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Ending After Part 4
According to Deadline, Netflix has opted to cancel Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The Riverdale spinoff starring Kiernan Shipka will end after the upcoming Part 4 later this year.
The two seasons were broken up into four parts. Part 1 featured 11 episodes, while Part 2 had nine, and Parts 3 and 4 had eight each. The first batch of Season 2’s episodes were released on January 24.
Over the course of Part 4’s eight episodes, The Eldritch Terrors will descend upon Greendale. The coven must fight each terrifying threat one-by-one (The Weird, The Returned, The Darkness to name a few), all leading up to…The Void, which is the End of All Things. As the witches wage war, with the help of The Fright Club, Nick begins to slowly earn his way back into Sabrina’s heart, but will it be too late?
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/ Lilith, Chance Perdomo as Ambrose Spellman, Jaz Sinclair as Roz Walker, Richard Coyle as Father Blackwood, Tati Gabrielle as Prudence, Ross Lynch as Harvey Kinkle, Gavin Leatherwood as Nick Scratch, Lachlan Watson as Susie/Theo Putnam, and Luke Cook as the Dark Lord.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Riverdale) wrote the adaptation (the comic book basis for which he also wrote) and serves as executive producer. The drama hails from the Warner Bros. Television-based Berlanti Productions.
Parts 1, 2, and 3 of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina are streaming now on Netflix.
