We finally have a release date for Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
Season three, or ‘chapter’ as they like to call it, will premiere 24 January 2020 on Netflix.
It comes less than a year after the second instalment, which received universal critical acclaim for its dark tone and treatment of its LGBTQ characters – especially Sabrina’s trans male friend Theo Putnam (Lachlan Watson).
Season three will see return of Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina, Lucy Davis, Miranda Otto, Chance Perdomo, Lachlan Watson, Ross Lynch, Jaz Sinclair, Michelle Gomez, Richard Coyle, Tati Gabrielle, Adeline Rudolph and Abigail Cowen.
Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa recently shared a behind-the-scenes photo from the set of the upcoming season of a mysterious woman in a black cloak alongside the caption: “The dread banshee has arrived, but which Spellman will die?”
The banshee comes from Irish mythology, and is a female spirit who heralds the death of a family member by screaming her lungs out – Alyssa Milano memorably played one in the third season of Charmed. But a dread banshee? Who knows?
There’s four major Spellman’s in the series: Sabrina, Hilda, Zelda and Ambrose – is the show seriously about to chop one of them off? Obviously, it won’t be Sabrina, so it looks like it will be one of her aunts or her cousin…
