Chilling Adventures of Sabrina creator reveals previous plan for cancelled Part 5
Recently, it was announced that Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will, unfortunately, be ending its run on Netflix after the upcoming premiere of Part 4 which will be available for streaming later this year. Yesterday, creator Robert Aguirre-Sacasa took to Twitter to share a new detail from their previous plans for the show, revealing that Part 5 would have featured the long-awaited Riverdale crossover. Because of this revelation, CAOS fans were even more heartbroken by the show’s cancellation with some even launching an online petition to save the Kiernan Shipka-led series.
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) 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, 2, and 3 of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina are streaming now on Netflix.
