News on the final season of Supernatural wasn’t all that came out of this weekend’s Television Critics Association executive meeting. Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa was also on hand and he spoke to the The Wrap about the new season and what’s in store for Sabrina and her friends.
It’s safe to say that this article will contain spoilers for season two of the popular Netflix series, so if you haven’t caught up, now is the time to turn back!
At the end of season two, our favorite half-witch Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) watched as her magical boyfriend Nicholas Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood) was carried off to Hell, and in the final moments of the season finale, she told her friends she was going to get him back.
According to Aguirre-Sacasa, that’s exactly what’s going to happen in season three.
“I think it’s safe to say that we are going to Hell, yes,” he told The Wrap. “We’re going to Hell. It’s very fun. It’s very fun. It’s dangerous, but it’s really fun.”
The showrunner also confirmed that there is not a set premiere date for season three of the series saying that they were currently filming episode six and that the script for episode eight was currently being finished.
The series, based on the comics of the same name, tells the story of Sabrina, a half-witch half-mortal girl caught between two worlds. Embracing those two worlds proves problematic at almost every turn, but the headstrong young woman is determined and watching her find her way has captivated audiences.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina takes place in the same universe as the CW’s Riverdale, and fans have anticipated a crossover since the show’s inception. Aguirre-Sacasa says that while it’s not off the table, it’s difficult to put the shows together, not so much because of subject matter, but because they air on two different platforms.
Perhaps they just haven’t found the right spell, yet?
Regardless, our eyes are peeled for news on the new premiere date and iHorror will keep you posted when that information becomes available.
