The 4th quarter is almost here people!!!!
Can you name one person that streams shows online and hadn’t known Sabrina??? Nope ( hopefully not…if there is a person like that; you alright dude??). Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was first released in the October of 2018, just before Halloween ( no better way to celebrate All Hallows Eve….). It completely took the viewers by storm. The first season had 20 episodes, 10 of which were premiered on Netflix (Part 1). Then a Christmas special episode was released in the December of the same year. The remaining 9 episodes were released in April 2019 as part 2 ( or as people often refer to it ; season 2…). The show is derived from the Archie comic book of “Sabrina the teenage witch” and the series portrays her in a much darker embodiment in an equally eerie backdrop of the town of Greendale ( it’s just one town over from Riverdale….). It garnered a huge fan following very fast. We see Sabrina Spellman, an orphaned witch living with her aunts and resisting the witch side of her being finally agree to train as a witch on her 16th birthday.
Let’s take a quick look at the plot;
(Spoilers!! If you haven’t seen it already…)The first season, Part 1 & 2 focused on her efforts at trying to balance the two parts of her existence; the mortal human and the powerful witch. She has got dependable friends but also formidable opponents. It seems everything she tries to set right with good intentions always spirals out of control in the worst way possible ( it’s ridiculous how much I relate with you ‘Brina….). Add some romance, confused feelings and subplots then, throw in the revelation of being Satan’s daughter who wants her to become the queen of Hell. In part 3 she gets darker and kind of reckless. Her powerful witch self is gaining control. Sabrina seems a little less human and a lot darker. ( Cue cherry bomb….) We are left with her travelling through time to save the world and those she loves from evil forces which ultimately ends up with two versions of her existing at once creating a paradox; One in Hell as the Queen and One on Surface as the teenage witch.
The first part of season 2 was released in the January of this year and was dubbed as part 3. Now, as you may have noticed, the show waits atleast six months before releasing the next part. I’m guessing it is safe to say that the much awaited part 4 would be released in July or August although no exact dates have been given. The fans can be sure of the completion of season 2 as filming is said to have begun as early as the May of 2019.
In some interviews, the cast has teased that the time loop will continue and that the two Sabrinas would more likely than not go headfirst against eachother. There is also Caliban, the prince of hell to be wary of and of course, Father Faustus Blackwood ( *smiles proudly in Christopher Marlowe*….get it??? ) with his incomprehensible egg that he unleashed upon the world at the end of part 3. Somehow though, the viewers are being assured of being shown a glimpse of heaven amidst all of this chaos.
So, excited for part 4 ??? I’m looking forward to it as are most people I guess. There’s a lot more to this show than what can be described in one post. But let me know what you like (and don’t like) about Sabrina’s character or any character from the series in the comments below. See you at the Gates of hell!!! ( Muhahahaha….get it??... No?)
