Why not start, though, but getting the good news out of the way if you haven’t already heard it — the series is actually coming back for two more seasons as a whole! Netflix actually refers to them formally as “Part 3” and “Part 4” of the saga, which really just seems like their way to be cute and mess around with semantics. A season is a season is a season, at least in our books.
In discussing the renewal at the time in which it happened, here is some of what executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa had to say:
“Praise Satan! I’m so grateful to my partners at Warner Bros, Netflix, Berlanti Television and Archie Productions for supporting this darker vision of the world’s most famous teen witch … And I’m thrilled to be continuing to tell Sabrina’s Chilling Adventures with our incredible cast and crew, led by the unstoppable Kiernan Shipka.”
Based on what the current release structure for the first two parts of this story, we wouldn’t be altogether shocked now if part 3 makes it to the streaming service at some point a little bit later on in the fall. These parts are constituted of eight episodes coming up, and it does feel like there’s enough time for the production team to cycle through episodes at this pace.
As a matter of fact, we would argue that there is a pressing need to turn around episodes of this show rather quickly, if for no other reason than that the cast is of a certain age that you have to take advantage of it. Because these are teen shows, everyone from the actors to the viewers have a limited sort of shelf life. It’s harder to do eight or nine seasons of a show like this than it is a superhero series or a crime procedural; there is a whole lot more of a strike-while-the-iron-is-hot quality here so that you make sure you don’t miss any of the good stuff and get viewers on board while you have them.
We do think that this show could probably last another year or two beyond season 4, but that’s going to be up to a couple of different things: Whether or not there is a proper story still worth telling, and then also whether or not the performance at Netflix makes it such that the streaming service wants a whole lot more. They don’t have a tendency to ever release info so we’re constantly left in the dark.
