Netflix's Sabrina Is Ending With Season 4
Netflix pulls the plug on the magical show.
Netflix has confirmed that The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is coming to an end. Its upcoming fourth season will be its last, the streaming network announced on Wednesday.
Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said in a statement (via THR): "Working on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been an incredible honor from day one."
He added: "I am beyond thankful to the crew, writers, editors, assistants, and everyone for pouring so much love into this dark dream of a show. I'm also grateful to our partners at Netflix, Warner Bros., Berlanti Television, and Archie Comics for letting us tell the story we wanted to tell, the way we wanted to tell it. We can't wait for everyone to see part four."
It all comes down to one last Chilling Adventure. Our final chapter is coming later this year. Coven forever. 🖤 pic.twitter.com/T0jkwAc1wJ— Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (@sabrinanetflix) July 9, 2020
Kiernan Shipka plays Sabrina in the show, which is far darker and edgier than the more family friendly version of the show starring Melissa Joan Hart in the late '90s show.
In addition to Shipka, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina stars Lord of the Rings' Mirando Otto as her aunt Zelda and Wonder Woman's Lucy Davis as her other aunt Helga. The cat Salem is also in the show, but he doesn't talk like he did on the '90s show.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina generated some amount of controversy after the Satanic Temple sued Netflix and production company Warner Bros. for $50 million over the show's use of the Temple's goat-headed Baphomet creature. The companies eventually settled amicably.
