After what seems like an infernal eternity, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part Three finally has a premiere date!
According to Entertainment Weekly, the date–January 24, 2020–was announced during a panel at Argentina Comic Con.
Part Two of the popular Netflix series ended on a cliffhanger when Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) announced to her friends that she would be going to Hell to get her boyfriend Nick (Gavin Leatherwood) back after he became a vessel for Lucifer’s spirit and was carried into the Inferno by Madam Satan (Michelle Gomez).
Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has teased fans since filming began on part three with photos and hints at possible plot points, but the production has, until now, held back on commenting on a release date.
The official description for Part Three reads:
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…
We’ve got a great big red pentacle drawn over the date, and we will definitely be tuned into Netflix on January 24, 2020. How about you?
