Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has fans contemplating death in the upcoming third season of Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina after a Twitter post this weekend.
Teasing the arrival of the Banshee, Aguirre-Sacasa asks, “Which Spellman will die?”

Now, death is no stranger to Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
We know for a fact that Aunt Hilda has died multiple times and was subsequently resurrected in the magic-infused soil of the Spellman cemetery, and any number of characters have “died” and come back in the first couple of seasons. But there’s something very ominous about this particular post.
The banshee, or bean-sidhe, from Irish folklore is female Fae spirit who heralds impending death by wailing or keening outside the home of the doomed soul’s family. Needless to say, though she never caused the death herself, she was an unwelcome visitor.
Could this mean permanent death for an established character? One can only speculate at this point.
Aguirre-Sacasa has kept most details about season three under wraps except to report that Sabrina would definitely be headed into hell to attempt to save Nick Scratch who found himself hosting the spirit of Lucifer and carried into the Pit by Lillith at the end of season two.
There is no word yet on when season three of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will debut on Netflix, but iHorror will keep you posted when we know more.
